Spiriva Respimat

Spiriva respimat is a medicine used by patients with asthma. The treatment is taken with an inhaler and when prescribed, it is taken on a daily basis as a way of preventing asthma symptoms from flaring up and causing breathing difficulties. Also used by some people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Spiriva respimat contains tiotropium which is a medication that can help with keeping the airways in lungs open. It can also reduce inflammation, swelling and irritation in the lungs which could otherwise potentially cause an asthma attack in the near future.

Spiriva Respimat Inhaler

Spiriva respimat is a medication taken with an inhaler in order to treat asthma. It can also be used by patients who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The type of inhaler which Spiriva respimat functions as is known as a preventer inhaler. Asthma patients use a ‘preventer’ inhaler to prevent symptoms from developing and causing an asthma attack. If an attack (which causes breathlessness or wheeziness) does end up occurring, then a fast-acting ‘rescue’ inhaler is used instead to fight off symptoms.

How does Spiriva Respimat work?

Spiriva respimat contains tiotropium as its active ingredient. It can assist patients with asthma or COPD by helping the airways in the lungs to stay open. This makes it easier for air to get in and out the lungs and allows the patient using the treatment to breath normally. This medicine can also reduce any inflammation, swelling or irritation that may have built up in the airways. It is these symptoms affecting the airways which can lead asthma and COPD patients to experience attacks of breathlessness or wheeziness.

Can I safely use Spiriva Respimat?

If you have been diagnosed with asthma or COPD, then a doctor may end up prescribing Spiriva respimat to you as a preventive measure. If it’s deemed appropriate for you to use it, your doctor or nurse should instruct you on how to use this inhaler medication properly before you use it for the first time.

Spiriva respimat is indicated as an add-on maintenance bronchodilator treatment in patients aged 6 years and older with severe asthma who experienced one or more severe asthma exacerbations in the preceding year. Treatments which contain tiotropium are also indicated as a maintenance bronchodilator treatment to relieve symptoms of COPD.

However, you should check the ingredients contained within Spiriva respimat and avoid using this medication if you know you are allergic to anything contained within this treatment. There are also certain health problems which may affect your ability to use this medication. You should speak to your doctor or local pharmacist for advice before using Spiriva respimat if you have any of the following:

  • Narrow angle glaucoma
  • Problems with your prostate
  • Problems with passing urine
  • Kidneys problems

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, then it’s worth consulting your doctor or local pharmacist about using Spiriva respimat before you start. You should also inform your doctor or local pharmacist about any other medications you are currently taking before you start using an inhaler treatment like Spiriva respimat. It is important to confirm that you are not taking anything which could interfere with the effects of Spiriva respimat. For instance, if you are taking any anticholinergic drugs (such as ipratropium and oxitropium), then these could interact with Spiriva respimat.

Spiriva Respimat dosing

Your doctor, nurse, local pharmacist or patient information leaflet can provide guidance on how to correctly prepare and use your inhaler device when a dose of Spiriva respimat is required.

In regards to how often you take doses of this medicine, it is recommended for adults to inhale two puffs once a day. These puffs should be taken at the same time each day, since the medication lasts for 24 hours. Each time you take your medication, the dose indicator on your inhaler will get lower, and this is used to let you know when it’s time to get a new prescription of this medication.

It’s important to follow the standard recommended dosage instructions for this medication unless your doctor gives you different directions following a discussion. If you forget to take a dose of this medication, then simply skip it and take the next one when it is due. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten one. Taking a larger dose of Spiriva respimat than intended increases the chances of experiencing side effects. If you take more of this medication than you are meant to, you should contact your doctor or local pharmacist about this.

Spiriva Respimat side effects

Like with all medicines, it is possible that taking Spiriva respimat could lead to side effects, but most patients who use this treatment don’t experience them. There is a small chance that side effects like dry mouth, headaches, dizziness or coughing could occur as a result of using this medication. You should only be really concerned though if you have any side effects which are prolonged or particularly severe.

It is very rare for patients who use this medication to experience severe side effects. But if you do get any (like symptoms of an allergic reaction, for instance), then stop using this medication and contact your doctor or a hospital emergency department as soon as possible.
