Product Category : LABA (Long Acting Beta Agonists)

Chemical Name : (±)-2’-Hydroxy-5’-[(R*)-1-hydroxy-2-[[(R*)-p-methoxy -α-methylphenethyl] amino] ethyl] formanilide fumarate (2:1) (salt), dihydrate

General Information : Formoterol is a long-acting β2 agonist (LABA) used as a bronchodilator in the management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Formoterol has an extended duration of action (up to 12 h) compared to short-acting β2 agonists such as salbutamol (albuterol), which are effective for 4 h to 6 h. LABAs such as formoterol are used as "symptom controllers" to supplement prophylactic corticosteroid therapy. A "reliever" short-acting β2 agonist (e.g., salbutamol) is still required, since LABAs are not recommended for the treatment of acute asthma.
