Description

Spiriva, with its active ingredient tiotropium bromide, is a long-acting bronchodilator that falls under the class of anticholinergic medications. It is primarily used for managing and treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, and for controlling symptoms of asthma in adults and children over the age of 6. Spiriva works by relaxing the muscles around the airways so that they open up and you can breathe more easily. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school.
