USES: Formoterol is a long-acting bronchodilator used to open air passages in the lungs to improve breathing. It is used to prevent/minimize breathing problems in persons 6 years and older with breathing difficulties (e.g., asthma, bronchospasm). This drug is also used to prevent exercise-induced breathing difficulties (e.g., exercise-induced bronchospasm, EIB). This medication is not to be used for the quick relief of an acute asthma attack, nor is it a substitute for inhaled or oral corticosteroids (e.g., beclomethasone, fluticasone, prednisone). In fact, it is generally used in combination with another controller-type asthma medication (such as inhaled corticosteroids).
