Ellipta Is the Name of the Inhalation Device...NOT the Med

Mix-ups will put focus on avoiding errors with "Ellipta" inhalers...Anoro Ellipta, Arnuity Ellipta, Breo Ellipta, and Incruse Ellipta.

In a recent case, the pharmacist misread an Incruse Ellipta (umeclidinium) Rx as "increase Ellipta."

The pharmacist wasn't familiar with Incruse Ellipta, so he called the prescriber to get the dose of Breo Ellipta (fluticasone/vilanterol).
