If you are looking for a long-term medication to treat asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) symptoms, ask your doctor about a prescription to buy Spiriva Respimat. This is a once a day maintenance medication to help with shortness of breath, coughing, chest tightness, and wheezing. COPD refers to chronic bronchitis and emphysema and symptoms usually begin to appear in adults 40 years of age and older. Asthma is common in children but it is not unheard of to be diagnosed with it during your 50’s.
Acetylcholine is a chemical compound in your body that works as a neurotransmitter to send signals from one cell to another. These signals can cause motor nerves and muscles to work in a way that the airways in your lungs can be compromised as the muscles surrounding them contract. This causes the wheezing, tightness in your chest, and becoming out of breath with little physical activity.
Spiriva Respimat contains the active ingredient Tiotropium Bromide which is an anticholinergic. When the inhaler is used as directed, the medication blocks the effect of the cholinergic nerves which relaxes the muscles so your airways can expand and enable normal breathing. You will need to be ready with a rescue or fast-acting inhaler as prescribed by your doctor for sudden attacks or exacerbation of asthma and COPD.
Asthma is a chronic disease that causes inflammation in the bronchial tubes. Many asthma attacks are a result of an allergic reaction to pollen, dust mites, smoke, strong odors or scents, and other triggers. Muscles surrounding your airways tighten and can become swollen, and an increased mucus production can occur which impairs your ability to breathe properly.
COPD can start to develop slowly over the years without symptoms. Smoking is the main cause of COPD and the damage that occurs is permanent. In your late 40’s you may begin to notice a cough that worsens with time and becomes a productive cough with mucus, your chest feels tight, you wheeze as you breathe, and you are short of breath trying to do anything physical. There is no cure for asthma or COPD, but Spiriva Respimat enables you to go to work, school, family events, and social gatherings in comfort.
Ask your doctor about any risks with using Spiriva Respimat while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Spiriva Respimat is safe for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all current OTC and Rx drugs you use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.
Spiriva Respimat should not be administered to children younger than twelve years of age for asthma. For sudden asthma attacks, use a fast-acting inhaler. Until you know how your body will react to Spiriva Respimat, avoid operating a vehicle, machinery, or attempting any tasks that require you to be alert.
