Spiriva general information

What is Spiriva used for?

Spiriva inhalation capsules are used for the long-term treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other obstructive airways disease, like chronic bronchitis, and emphysema.  Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive obstructive airways disease that usually gets worse with time, with symptoms similar to asthma caused by bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways),, including tightness of the chest, wheezing and shortness of breath, as well as chronic cough with sputum production because the lung tissues have become damaged.  Spiriva inhalation capsules contain a powder that is inhaled using the HandiHaler device, which is especially designed for use with Spiriva capsules and can be obtained separately.  Spiriva inhalation capsules relieve symptoms of COPD and reduce the frequency of exacerbations; also improve exercise tolerance and health-related quality of life, but they do not cure COPD.

How does Spiriva work?

Spiriva inhalation capsules contain the bronchodilator tiotropium in powder form (bromide monohydrate), which is a long-acting anticholinergic that is used for the long-term treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) an irreversible obstructive disease of the lungs.  Tiotropium in Spiriva inhalation capsules acts on specific muscarinic receptors in the bronchioles of the lung to inhibit the interaction of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger of the nervous system) with muscarinic receptors, preventing spasm of the airway wall caused by acetylcholine.  Blocking the action of acetylcholine in the airways, causes the smooth muscle in the airway walls to relax and allows the airways to dilate (widen) which increases air flow into the lungs and relieves bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways).  When inhaled tiotropium goes directly into the lungs and very little is absorbed into the blood circulation.  Regular long-term use of Spiriva helps reduce symptoms of COPD such as shortness of breath, chronic cough with sputum production, tightness of the chest and wheezing.

What does Spiriva contain?

Each Spiriva inhalation capsules contain 22.5 mcg of the active ingredient tiotropium bromide monohydrate (powder), which is equivalent to 18 mcg of tiotropium, a long-acting bronchodilator used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).  Spiriva inhalation capsules also contain lactose monohydrate and the capsules are made of hard gelatine.
