  • Duolin Forte Inhaler is a combination of two medicines that makes breathing easier for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • This medicine is for inhalation only. The tablet should not be swallowed.
  • It should be taken at the same time each day.
  • It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. Use your rescue inhaler to control sudden difficulty in breathing. 
  • Dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help.
  • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
  • Take the first dose of this medicine under medical supervision as it may cause wheezing or tightening of the airways (bronchospasm) immediately after using.
  • Your doctor may regularly monitor your  blood potassium level as low oxygen level in the blood (hypoxia) and medicines such as Duolin Forte Inhaler can lower blood potassium level.
  • Only miniscule amounts of Duolin Forte Inhaler may get absorbed into the bloodstream after inhalation. Hence, serious side effects are unlikely.
