Dispensing of fixed-dose combinations of inhaled corticosteroids with long-acting beta2-agonists, long-acting anti-cholinergics, or long-acting beta2-agonists was identified in a nationwide registry.

Among utilizers of these medications, adherence varied from 29 % to 56 % (p < 0.001, test for trend) across GOLD 1-4 for fixed-dose combinations of inhaled corticosteroids with long-acting beta2-agonists, from 51 % to 68 % (p = 0.11) for long-acting anti-cholinergics, and from 25 to 62 % (p = 0.01) for long-acting beta2-agonists.CONCLUSIONS: Use of and adherence to maintenance medication for COPD in the general population was associated with the severity of COPD as defined by GOLD, but even in severe and very severe COPD, use and adherence was low.",
