Duova Rotacaps comprises of an active pharmaceutical ingredient called Tiotropium Bromide and Formoterol Fumarate. Tiotropium is an anticholinergic agent that works on smooth muscles of the airways and inhibits the effects of a chemical called acetylcholine, thus stops the airways to contract. This in turn opens the airways and makes it easier to get air in and out of the lungs, whereas Formoterol belongs to a class of medication called long acting beta agonists. It helps in relaxing the muscles of the air passages, thus widening it and making it easier to breathe.
