Learning More About Brovana

Effects

In a study for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease treatment, Brovana was compared to a nebulizer solution with no active ingredient (a placebo). People taking Brovana experienced improved lung function, compared to those taking the placebo. Also, this study showed that Brovana started working within seven minutes and lasted for several hours.
 

When and How to Take Brovana

Some general considerations for when and how to take the medication include the following:
 
  • Brovana comes in a liquid form that is used in a nebulizer. You will need to purchase or rent a nebulizer in order to use Brovana.
     
  • It is usually used twice a day. Try to separate the two doses by about 12 hours.
     
  • Unlike some other nebulizer medications, Brovana vials are used without being diluted. It is not known whether it is safe to mix Brovana together with other nebulizer solutions.
     
  • Make sure you know exactly how to measure the dose and how to use and clean the nebulizer.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It will not work if you stop taking it.
     

Dosing

There is only one standard recommended dose of Brovana, regardless of your age or weight. As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
