Spiriva, also known by the generic name tiotropium oral inhalation, is an inhaled medication used to control breathing problems caused by respiratory conditions. Spiriva can help alleviate difficulty breathing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Spiriva may be prescribed to help treat people with emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Spiriva is a bronchidilator medication, which helps the airways relax and open wider to improve breathing. Spiriva comes in a capsule that can only be used in a special inhaler, and the medication is breathed into the lungs. Spiriva is not effective in managing a breathing attack, and only manages symptoms of respiratory conditions but can’t cure them.
