A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Trimbow is a combination medication that contains three active ingredients: beclometasone, formoterol, and glycopyrronium bromide. It is used to control and prevent symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including bronchospasm, wheezing, and shortness of breath. This medication comes in the form of a metered dose inhaler and should be used regularly as directed by a doctor.
Trimbow should be used as directed by a healthcare provider. Shake the inhaler well before each use. The recommended dose is one inhalation, twice daily. Do not exceed the recommended dose. Rinse your mouth with water after each use to help reduce the risk of oral thrush.
The active ingredients in Trimbow are beclometasone, formoterol, and glycopyrronium bromide. Beclometasone is a steroid that reduces inflammation in the airways. Formoterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles in the airways and helps to improve breathing. Glycopyrronium bromide is an antimuscarinic that works to improve breathing by reducing the constriction of airways.
Trimbow should not be used as a rescue medication for sudden breathing problems. It is not recommended for use in patients with severe asthma. Patients with a history of heart problems, high blood pressure, or thyroid problems should use Trimbow with caution. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult a doctor before using this medication.
Common side effects of Trimbow include hoarseness, sore throat, headache, and thrush (an oral yeast infection). More serious side effects include rapid heartbeat, chest pain, and worsening breathing problems. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. If you experience any other unusual symptoms, stop using Trimbow and talk to your doctor.
