Breathing is a natural part of our daily lives. From birth, we breathe every 3–5 seconds and seldom pay attention to our breathing.
However, there are a number of reasons why our lungs can become unwell. The most common reasons are asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Normal breathing can also be restricted by allergies and allergic rhinitis.
Medication may also be needed alongside other preventive and alleviating measures to ease symptoms and prevent the onset of illness.
Medicines and dosing techniques for the lungs
Orion has a long history in developing pharmaceutical products and drug administration devices that maintain lung health and relieve symptoms. Since 1990’s, we have developed new drug administration techniques. We also offer medicines for allergic symptoms.
Our dry powder inhalers are completely carbon neutral. Read more about Orion’s sustainability work here.
Information and peer support for everyone
To support patients with asthma and COPD, Orion maintains a comprehensive information centre on the treatment and diagnosis of these diseases and how to live a good life with them. The website also offers perspectives and support for healthcare professionals who treat these patients.
