Foradil Aerolizer consists of a dry powder formulation of formoterol fumarate intended for oral inhalation only with the Aerolizer Inhaler. The inhalation powder is packaged in clear hard gelatin capsules

Each capsule contains a dry powder blend of 12 mcg of formoterol fumarate and 25 mg of lactose (which contains trace levels of milk proteins) as a carrier

Foradil Aerolizer is indicated for the treatment of asthma and in the prevention of bronchospasm only as concomitant therapy with a long-term asthma control medication, such as an inhaled corticosteroid, in adults and children 5 years of age and older with reversible obstructive airways disease, including patients with symptoms of nocturnal asthma

Foradil capsules should be administered only by the oral inhalation route and only using the Aerolizer Inhaler

It is important for patients to understand how to correctly administer Foradil capsules using the Aerolizer Inhaler and how Foradil should be used in relation to other asthma medications they are taking
