Arcapta Neohaler is a bronchodilator medication used to control symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which includes bronchitis and emphysema.

Indacaterol is a long-acting beta-2-adrenergic agonist that binds to receptors in your bronchial smooth muscles to relax and widen your airways. This action allows Arcapta Neohaler to improve your airflow and help prevent bronchospasm attacks.

Dosage and Administration

The dose of Arcapta that is prescribed and how often it is recommended for use will vary depending on the individual and severity of the COPD symptoms being treated. Follow all instructions for use given by your healthcare provider and read packaging labels to ensure the best results from treatment.
