Seebri®▼ Breezhaler® (glycopyrronium bromide)

What is Seebri® Breezhaler® (glycopyrronium bromide) and what is it used for?

Seebri Breezhaler is a medicine that contains an active substance called glycopyrronium bromide. This belongs to a group of medicines called bronchodilators. It is available as capsules containing a powder for inhalation.

Seebri Breezhaler is used to make breathing easier for adult patients who have breathing difficulties due to a long-term lung disease called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

In COPD the muscles around the airways tighten. This makes breathing difficult. This medicine blocks the tightening of these muscles in the lungs and causes the muscles of the airways to relax, making it easier for air to get in and out of the lungs. Seebri Breezhaler is used for maintenance treatment.

Seebri Breezhaler capsules are only used with the Breezhaler inhaler and must not be swallowed. To take a dose, the patient places a capsule into the device, presses the buttons to pierce it and breathes in the powder through the mouth.

The medicine can only be obtained with a prescription.
