Posology: Adults: The recommended dose is two inhalations of Trimbow twice daily. The maximum dose is two inhalations of Trimbow twice daily.
Special populations: Elderly: No dosage adjustment is required in elderly patients (65 years of age and older).
Renal impairment: Trimbow can be used at the recommended dose in patients with mild to moderate renal impairment. Use of Trimbow in patients with severe renal impairment or end-stage renal disease requiring dialysis, especially if associated with significant body weight reduction, should be considered only if the expected benefit outweighs the potential risk (see Precautions and Pharmacology: Pharmacokinetics under Actions).
Hepatic impairment: There are no relevant data on the use of Trimbow in patients with severe hepatic impairment and the medicinal product should be used with caution in these patients (see Precautions and Pharmacology: Pharmacokinetics under Actions).
Paediatric population: There is no relevant use of Trimbow in the paediatric population (under 18 years of age) for the indication of COPD.
Method of administration: For inhalation use.
To ensure proper administration of the medicinal product, the patient should be shown how to use the inhaler correctly by a physician or other healthcare professional, who should also regularly check the adequacy of the patient's inhalation technique. The patient should be advised to read the Package Leaflet carefully and follow the instructions for use as given in the leaflet. After inhaling, patients should rinse their mouth or gargle with water without swallowing it or brush their teeth (see Precautions and Special precautions for disposal and other handling under Cautions for Usage).
Trimbow is provided with a dose counter or dose indicator on the back of the inhaler, which shows how many actuations are left. For the 60 and 120 actuation pressurised containers, each time the patient presses the container a puff of the solution is released and the counter counts down by one. For the 180 actuation pressurised container, each time the patient presses the pressurised container a puff of the solution is released and the counter rotates by a small amount; the number of puffs remaining is displayed in intervals of 20.
Patients should be advised not to drop the inhaler as this may cause the counter to count down.
