Combination Inhalers for the Treatment of COPD

Key information on COPD combination inhalers.

Quickly compare inhaled treatment options for your COPD patients with the MIMS table of COPD combination inhalers.

The table provides essential information for healthcare professionals prescribing a dual or triple combination inhaler, either when stepping up treatment or when starting a combination inhaler in patients already adequately controlled on separate devices.

It can also help prescribers looking for an alternative combination device where the existing choice is unsuitable.

The table lists all available combination LABA/LAMA, LABA/corticosteroid and LABA/corticosteroid/LAMA devices. It summarises:

  • Metered/pre-dispensed and delivered doses
  • Inhaler type (breath-actuated or pressurised metered-dose)
  • Dose counter and confirmation features
  • Compatible spacers

Drug names link through to the full MIMS entries for more detailed prescribing information on each branded or generic product.

Recommendations are derived from manufacturers' Summaries of Product Characteristics (SPCs).
