Spiriva Respimat (Tiotropium Bromide) is a long-acting bronchodilator used by adults with COPD (such as bronchitis) to prevent bronchospasm. This drug works by relaxing the muscles in the airways allowing for easier breathing. It is meant to be used regularly in order to be effective. It is not a quick-relief inhaler and so it will not work fast enough to prevent sudden breathing problems.
Spiriva Respimat may also be used to prevent asthma attacks in children at least 6 years of age and adults.
