Product introduction

Tuloplast 1 Transdermal Patch is used to treat and prevent asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), a lung disorder in which flow of air to the lung is blocked. It helps in relaxing the muscles of the air passages, thus widening it and making it easier to breathe.

Tuloplast 1 Transdermal Patch is for external use. Your doctor will explain how to use a patch and give you the one most suitable for you. Follow the instructions carefully to get the most benefit. The dose may change from time to time to suit your individual needs. You should not wear more than one patch at a time. Normally you will use one new patch each day, changing the place where you apply it to avoid skin irritation.

The most common side effects of this medicine include tremors, headaches, restlessness, insomnia, palpitations, and muscle cramps. You may have side effects more often when you start your treatment or when your dose is increased. Usually, the side effects will slowly go away as your body gets used to the medicine. If they are severe or will not go away, you should remove your patch and contact your doctor.

Before taking this medicine, let your doctor know if you have a heart problem, high blood pressure, diabetes, or thyroid disorders. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
