Onbreez Capule 300mcg
It is used to treat trouble breathing and wheezing due to a certain ongoing lung disease (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD, including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema). It is used if your breathing problems are not controlled with other medication (such as a quick-relief inhaler).
Shakiness (tremor), nausea, headache, or cough may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
It has not been investigated in patients whose diabetes mellitus is not well controlled. Indacaterol is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to indacaterol or to any of the ingredients; immediate hypersensitivity reactions may occur following administration.
Before using indacaterol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

Rarely, serious (sometimes fatal) breathing problems have happened to people with asthma using a long-acting inhaled beta agonist (salmeterol). Since indacaterol is similar to salmeterol, it might cause these serious breathing problems. Indacaterol has not been shown to be safe or effective to treat asthma and is not approved for this use. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of treatment with this medication.
It is unknown if indacaterol passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
