About Tiomate Transcaps 15's

Tiomate Transcaps 15's is a respiratory medication primarily used to treat and prevent asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) like bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes) and emphysema (shortness of breath). Asthma is a chronic (long-term) respiratory condition in which airways narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs.

Tiomate Transcaps 15's is a combination of two medicines: Formoterol (bronchodilator) and Tiotropium (anticholinergic).  Formoterol belongs to the class of bronchodilators. It is a long-acting beta-agonist that relaxes the muscles in the airways and increases airflow to the lungs. Formoterol makes breathing easier by widening the airways. Tiotropium works by blocking the receptors for acetylcholine released in the cholinergic nerve endings in the airways. Tiomate Transcaps 15's relaxes and widens the airway's openings, making it easier for the air to get in and out of the lungs. Thereby, it provides relief from sneezing, runny or blocked nose, and sinus discomfort. It helps to prevent asthma attacks in adults and children.

Tiomate Transcaps 15's is available in the form of an inhaler, autohaler, rotacap/transcaps, capsules, and rotadisk. Your doctor will advise on how often you take Tiomate Transcaps 15's based on your medical condition. The common side effects of Tiomate Transcaps 15's include nausea, vomiting, respiratory tract infection, headache, sore throat, cough, bone, muscle or joint pain, increased heart rate, chills, tiredness, and noisy breathing. Most of these side effects of Tiomate Transcaps 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Do not use Tiomate Transcaps 15's to treat sudden severe symptoms of asthma or as a rescue inhaler. Bronchodilators like Formoterol can cause hypokalemia. Hence regular monitoring of potassium levels is recommended. Please check with your doctor if you are pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or taking any other prescribed or non-prescribed medicines. Brief your medical history if you have heart, liver, kidney diseases, high blood pressure, hypokalaemia (low potassium levels in the blood), aneurysm (swelling of an artery), pheochromocytoma (adrenal gland tumor), hyperadrenocorticism (high levels of cortisol), eye disorders like cataract and glaucoma, chickenpox or measles, immune system problem, seizure (fits), osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones) and diabetes before taking Tiomate Transcaps 15's. Tiomate Transcaps 15's is not recommended for children below five years of age.
