Spiriva® (tiotropium bromide) is a prescription medication used to prevent airway spasms (called bronchospasms) caused by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
The medication is inhaled into the lungs once a day. Spiriva comes in capsule form, although these capsules are never to be swallowed. They are used in the Spiriva HandiHaler®. This device punctures the capsule, and then the powder is inhaled using your own breath. It is important that you learn exactly how to use your inhaler. Make sure your healthcare provider shows you the steps needed to use it.
Spiriva is available in one strength -- Spiriva HandiHaler 18 mcg capsules, available in kits containing 5, 30, or 90 capsules. Each kit comes with complete instructions, capsules, and an inhaler device.
