COPD Home > Perforomist Drug Information

Based on the information gathered in clinical trials, Perforomist™ (formoterol solution) appears to be an effective treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This prescription drug is part of a class of medications known as beta-adrenergic receptor agonists, or beta agonists for short.
Perforomist is used in a nebulizer, a device that changes liquid medications into fine droplets that are inhaled into the lungs. It is typically used twice a day, with about 12 hours in between doses. Nausea, dry mouth, and an irritated nose are some of the most commonly reported side effects.
