Will Oxeze (formoterol) help with my Asthma?

Oxeze is part of a class of medications known as brondchodilators. It helps asthma patients open up airways and make breathing easier, preventing its symptoms and decreasing the amount of asthma attacks?. When Oxeze is inhaled, it prevents certain cells from releasing substances that cause asthma symptoms in the lungs and breathing passages. Oxeze does not relieve an asthma attack that has already started. Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema can also be treated with Oxeze.

Before using Oxeze, tell your doctor if you are allergic to Oxeze or to any other drugs, substances, such as foods, preservatives, or dyes. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding a baby. Children and older patients, use Oxeze with caution.
