Spiriva (Tiotropium) Side Effects, Important Info, How to Use & More
Spiriva (tiotropium) is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs. Spiriva is used to prevent bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways in the lungs) in people with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), including bronchitis and emphysema.
Spiriva Respimat is used long term for the prevention of bronchospasm in COPD, and for the maintenance treatment of asthma in patients 12 years of age and older. Spiriva also reduces the likelihood of flare-ups and worsening of COPD symptoms.
