Overview of adverse events in the largest comparator study (N=905) 1

Reproduced and adapted from Maleki-Yazdi et al. 2014 1

AE, adverse event; SAE, serious adverse event.

Due to antimuscarinic activity (a LAMA class effect), Anoro Ellipita and tiotropium should be used in caution in patients with urinary retention or narrow angle glaucoma. 3

Cardiovascular events, such as cardiac arrhythmias, may be seen after the administration of muscarinic receptor antagonists and sympathomimetic agents, including umeclidinium/vilanterol. Therefore, Anoro Ellipta should be used with caution in patients with severe cardiovascular disease. 3
