Spiriva Respimat Inhaler (Tiotropium)
- Spiriva Respimat
Tiotropium is used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a lung disease that also includes chronic bronchitis (swelling of the tubes leading to the lungs) and emphysema (damage to the air sacs in the lungs). It is also used as maintenance treatment for asthma in adults and children 6 years of age and older.
Tiotropium belongs to the family of medicines known as bronchodilators. Bronchodilators are breathed in through the mouth to help open up the bronchial tubes (air passages) in the lungs. It is taken by inhalation (an inhaler) and will increase the flow of air to the lungs. This medicine is available only with your doctor’s prescription.

Spiriva works by relaxing the muscles that surround the airways. For people living with COPD, the muscles lining the airways can tighten causing the airways to become too narrow therefore making breathing difficult (bronchospasm).
You don’t have to walk far and you don’t have to walk fast, but you really should walk. According to a study at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, you can get the same health benefits walking as you can by running. The calories burned by both walking and running were equally effective when it came to the health benefits to the cardiovascular system.
