Spiriva Generic

Spiriva Respimat is a prescription inhalation spray. Although there is no generic version of Spiriva available at this time, you can get considerable discounts on this drug online. Canadian pharmacies like My Drug Center offer low prices so you can focus on your treatment. Brand-name Spiriva Respimat contains tiotropium bromide, an ingredient that helps alleviate symptoms of lung disorders. Spiriva Respimat is not approved for relieving asthma attacks and acute bronchospasms. Speak to your doctor for more information about whether Spiriva is right for you.

Is Spiriva a Steroid?

No. Spiriva contains tiotropium bromide, which is an anticholinergic bronchodilator and not a steroid. One of the advantages that tiotropium bromide has over inhalers that use steroids is its long-lasting effects of more than 24 hours. Studies have shown that Spiriva helps dilate the lungs for more than a day by blocking the muscarinic receptor blockade. [1] As a result, Spiriva is able to significantly improve a patient's lung volume.

What is Spiriva Used For?

Spiriva is approved for the once-daily treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Spiriva Respimat may also be used to treat asthma. My Drug Center supplies one dosage strength for Spiriva Respimat of 2.5 mcg. Depending on the condition you are treating, your doctor will prescribe different dosing directions. Because Spiriva contains an anticholinergic ingredient, patients with renal impairment should be monitored closely.

Common side effects of Spiriva Respimat may include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Nosebleed
  • Muscle pain

Spiriva Respimat may also cause severe side effects like painful urination or a rapid heartbeat. If you experience these serious side effects, speak to your doctor as soon as you can. Your healthcare provider may help you with the management of these side effects or prescribe any necessary treatment.

Before starting treatment with Spiriva Respimat, inform your doctor if you have narrow-angle glaucoma, an enlarged prostate, or a condition involving bladder obstruction.

Spiriva Cost

Because Spiriva Respimat is a brand name asthma and COPD medication, it can be expensive at your local pharmacy. Whereas pharmacies in the U.S. charge over four hundred dollars on average for Spiriva, a Canadian pharmacy like My Drug Center can help you get this medication for significantly less.

Spiriva Dosage

As mentioned previously, Spiriva Respimat is available in one dosage strength of 2.5 mcg. However, your doctor will determine how many inhalations per use is right for your condition. While asthma and COPD have similar symptoms, these two conditions differ in many ways. Spiriva may not be effective if you take too many or too few inhalations each time, so always follow your doctor's directions.

Spiriva 2.5 mcg

For chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the recommended total dose per day is 5 mcg of tiotropium bromide. To reach this daily recommended total, patients will take two puffs of Sprivia 2.5 mcg per day. For asthma, the total recommended daily amount is 2.5 mcg of Spiriva. Because Spiriva Respimat comes in 2.5 mcg, asthma patients will take one puff daily. For asthma treatment, it may take up to eight weeks to see the full benefits of Spiriva 2.5 mcg. One study found that continuing the use of Spiriva Respimat significantly improved lung function at week 12 of treatment. [2]

What happens if I suddenly stop taking Spiriva Respimat?

If you stop taking Spiriva before your treatment is complete, symptoms of your condition will likely return. Stopping without your doctor's approval may also increase the risk of side effects.

What is the most effective dosage of Spiriva?

Spiriva Respimat comes in one dosage strength of 2.5 mcg. Patients are usually prescribed two puffs a day for COPD and one puff a day for asthma.

How long does it take for Spiriva Respimat to work?

Spiriva Respimat's onset time will vary with each patient. Spiriva generally takes between four to eight weeks for maximum benefits to lung function.

Can I use Spiriva Respimat as an emergency inhaler?

No. Spiriva Respimat contains tiotropium bromide, which takes time to reach its full effect. Spiriva does not work quickly enough to be an effective quick-relief inhaler. Use an approved emergency inhaler instead in the event of an asthma attack or bronchospasm.

What happens if I miss a dose of Spiriva Respimat?

Generally, you will want to take the missed dose of Spiriva as soon as you remember. However, it is best to avoid double dosing if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose.
