The Problem With LABAs
Foradil belongs to a class of inhalers called Long-Acting Beta-Agonists (LABAs).
Foradil inhalers relax the muscles in bronchial passages, allowing more air to flow. The medication generally provides immediate relief to asthma sufferers but unfortunately, does not treat the underlying inflammation. This creates the risk of a life-threatening condition.
