Formoterol, a long-acting bronchodilator, is indicated as a long-term (maintenance) treatment to prevent or reduce wheezing and difficulty breathing caused by asthma or ongoing lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which encompasses chronic bronchitis and emphysema. 

Formoterol should only be used long-term if asthma symptoms are not adequately controlled by other asthma medications, such as inhaled corticosteroids. It is not to be used alone to treat asthma.

Formoterol works by relaxing the muscles around the airways, allowing them to open up and facilitating easier breathing. By controlling symptoms of breathing problems, this medication may decrease time lost from work or school. 

In addition to its use as a maintenance treatment, Formoterol is also employed to prevent breathing difficulties induced by exercise (exercise-induced bronchospasm-EIB).
