Foratec Rotacaps (Formoterol Fumarate) is indicated for the treatment of asthma. Its mechanism of action is widening up the airways and helping them to remain open. This can improve breathing and help prevent bronchospasms from occurring. It has also been used for patients suffering from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), including bronchitis and emphysema. Medicines which are classified as long acting beta2 adrenergic agonists, (such as the active ingredient in this medicine) work on the beta 2 receptors directly in the lungs. By stimulating these receptors, it causes muscular relaxation and significant bronchodilation. The effects can persist for as long as 12 hours, and in some cases physicians have used it to prevent symptoms of nocturnal (night-time) asthma.
Foratec Rotacaps (Formoterol Fumarate) is contained in capsules, which are inserted into a rotahaler or revolizer device so that their contents can be inhaled. Each capsule contains 12mcg of the active ingredient. Your physician will calculate the required daily dosage schedule according to your individual circumstances. Patients with asthma may be told to take another long term medicine for the control of their asthma (possibly an inhalable corticosteroid). Generally, physicians will direct adults treating asthma to inhale 1 capsule every 12 hours alongside their long term maintenance medicine. Physicians may also instruct adults with COPD being treated for bronchoconstriction to administer the same dose, however if used to prevent exercise induced bronchospasms, the physician will most likely order the patient to use it 15 minutes prior to beginning exercise. Never use more than your physician recommends.
