Tiotropium belongs to a group of medications known as bronchodilators, and is prescribed to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Its primary purpose is to alleviate symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness by relaxing and widening the air passages that lead to the lungs, thus improving breathing.

Uses and Dosage

Tiotropium is administered through a specialized inhaler that contains dry powder capsules. It is typically used once a day in either the morning or evening, it should be inhaledt at around the same time each day.

To ensure proper use, carefully follow the directions on your prescription label, and seek clarification from your doctor or pharmacist if any part is unclear. Do not inhale more or less than directed or more frequently than prescribed.

Never swallow the tiotropium capsules, and only use the inhaler provided to inhale the dry powder contained within.

Do not attempt to use any other inhaler or take any other medication with the tiotropium inhaler.

Tiotropium should not be used to treat sudden attacks of wheezing or shortness of breath. Instead, your doctor may prescribe a different medication for such situations.

Although tiotropium helps manage COPD symptoms, it does not cure the condition. It may take several weeks before you experience the full benefits of tiotropium, so continue taking it as prescribed even if you feel better. Do not discontinue the medication without first consulting with your doctor.

When using tiotropium, be cautious not to let the powder get into your eyes, as it may cause blurred vision and sensitivity to light. If this happens, contact your doctor immediately.
