Relenza Diskhaler Description

Relenza Diskhaler is a prescription strength inhalation powder that helps shorten the time you have flu symptoms such as nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, muscle aches, tiredness, weakness, headache, fever, and chills. This medication is effective when administered if you have had symptoms for less than two days, or it can be administered to prevent influenza if you have been exposed to the virus but you do not have any symptoms yet.

Treat and Prevent the Flu to Minimize Sick Days

The active ingredient in Relenza Diskhaler is Zanamivir, a neuraminidase inhibitor that effectively treats and prevents infection of the flu virus. Influenza is caused by a contagious virus that affects your respiratory system. Relenza Diskhaler works to stop the virus from creating new cells by binding to an enzyme called neuraminidase. Without this enzyme, the virus cannot leave one cell to infect another so it is unable to reproduce.

Conditions Treated by Relenza Diskhaler

Relenza Diskhaler is used in adults and children at least seven years of age to treat some types of influenza in people who have had symptoms of the flu for two days or less. This medication is also used to prevent some types of flu in adults and children at least five years of age when they have spent time with someone who has the flu or when there is a flu outbreak. Relenza Diskhaler is used in the treatment of the infection caused by the flu virus (influenza A and influenza B) and may also be used to prevent and treat swine influenza A.

Before Relenza Diskhaler is Prescribed

Relenza Diskhaler is not recommended for people with chronic respiratory disease such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) because of the risk of side effects and because it has not been shown to help them. If you will be using a bronchodilator alongside this medication, the Relenza Diskhaler should be used first.

What You Should Know About Relenza Diskhaler

Relenza Diskhaler does not take the place of an annual flu shot and will not keep you or your child from getting a bacterial infection that starts with flu-like symptoms. Do not share Relenza Diskhaler with anybody else and keep it safely stored out of children’s reach. Until you know how Relenza Diskhaler will affect you, use caution when operating a vehicle or machinery.
