What is olodaterol?

Olodaterol is a bronchodilator that is used to prevent symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in adults. Olodaterol will not treat a bronchospasm attack that has already begun.

Olodaterol may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using olodaterol?

You should not use olodaterol if you have asthma.

Olodaterol may increase the risk of death or hospitalization in people with asthma, but the risk in people with COPD is not known. Talk with your doctor about your own risk.

Olodaterol is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.

Tell your doctor if you have ever had:
