Breo ElliptaAsthma treatment

Do you have asthma? Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if it’s under control. If you’re feeling breathless, tight in the chest and wheezy talk to your doctor about a treatment that can help you become symptom-free for a full 24 hours.1

Breo is different, it’s an asthma treatment that helps you breathe easier throughout the day and night, and all it takes is a single puff once a day.2

Breo works around the clock
Unlike other preventer inhalers you need to use two or three times daily, all you need to do is inhale Breo once and you should be set for a full 24 hours.2 Breo also has a handy counter on the side of the inhaler which lets you know how many doses you have left.

How often should you use it
To get the full benefit and help you get through the day and night without feeling breathless or wheezy, it’s important you use Breo every day, as instructed by your GP.

Ask your doctor if Breo is right for you. It’s fully funded.3
