COPD Home > Other Information on Foradil

Dosing Information

The dose of Foradil your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on whether you take the medication on a regular basis or if you only take it when needed to prevent exercise-induced asthma.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
(Click Foradil Dosage for more information.)

Common side effects of Foradil include but are not limited to:
  • Bronchitis or other infections
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Shakiness (tremors)
