Cautions, anaphylactic reactions reported in patients with severe milk protein allergy after inhalation of other powder products containing lactose (see Contraindications).

Do not initiate in patients during rapidly deteriorating or potentially life-threatening episodes of copd. Beta2-agonists can produce clinically significant cardiovascular effects including increased pulse rate or increased systolic or diastolic blood pressure.
Do not exceed recommended dose (ie, 1 actuation once daily) or coadminister with other medicines containing a laba; may result in overdose. Fatalities reported in association with excessive use of inhaled sympathomimetic drugs.
Paradoxical bronchospasm reported; discontinue umeclidinium bromide/vilanterol and treat immediately with an inhaled, prompt-acting attack bronchodilator (eg, albuterol). Beta2-agonists should be used with caution with convulsive disorders, thyrotoxicosis, narrow-angle glaucoma, conditions causing urinary retention, and in individuals who are unusually responsive to sympathomimetic amines.
