What is Tobi Podhaler?

Tobi Podhaler is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Novartis Pharmaceuticals. Tobi Podhaler is an aminoglycoside antibacterial indicated for the management of cystic fibrosis patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a persistent lung infection. People with cystic fibrosis produce thick, sticky mucus that can plug up the tubes, ducts, and passageways in the lungs, affecting lung function.

Tobi Podhaler is not recommended in patients under the age of 6 years, patients with forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) <25% or >80%, or patients colonized with Burkholderia cepacia.

What doses of Tobi Podhaler are available?

Tobi Podhaler is available in inhalation powder form, in the following doses: 28 mg in a capsule.

Tobi Podhaler capsules must always be stored in the blister to protect from moisture and only removed immediately before use. Do not swallow. For oral inhalation only. Tobi Podhaler capsules are for use with the Podhaler device only. Each Podhaler device consists of the inhaler body, mouthpiece, capsule chamber, and blue push button.

The recommended dosage is the inhalation of four 28 mg capsules twice daily for 28 days. If you miss a dose, use the medicine as soon as you can, but skip the missed dose if your next dose is due in less than 6 hours.

Always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
