Description

What is Spiriva?

Spiriva, known as the medication tiotropium is a bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles within the airways increasing the air flow to the lungs. It is used to prevent bronchospasm which is the narrowing of airways in the lungs of adults suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis and emphysema. Spiriva should be used regularly in order to prevent wheezing and shortness of breath. It does not work immediately and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. If you do begin wheezing or suffer sudden shortness of breath, use your quick-relief inhaler. Spiriva may also be used as a maintenance medicine to prevent asthma attacks in adults and children over 6 years old.

How to use Spiriva with HandiHaler

Tiotropium comes with capsules known as rotacaps and a specially designed inhaler. You should not take the capsule by mouth and should only use one capsule at a time. Insert the capsule into the handihaler device and then press the green button on the side of the handihaler. Breathe out fully and then close your lips around the device mouthpiece and breathe in slowly and deeply through your mouth. Hold your breath as you remove the mouthpiece from your mouth and then breathe normally again. After you are finished remove the used capsule and discard it.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Always use the capsules known as rotacaps with the device. Do not take the capsule by mouth.
  • Insert the capsule into the handihaler device and press the green button on the side.
  • Breathe out fully before closing your lips around the mouthpiece of the handihaler. Breathe in slowly and deeply through your mouth and hold your breath as you remove the mouthpiece from your mouth. Then breathe normally again.
  • Remove the used rotacap from the handihaler device and discard it.
  • Do not store any used or unused capsules in the handihaler device.
  • Rinse the handihaler mouthpiece with warm water and keep it dry.
  • Use this medication regularly. Do not use a tiotroprium inhaler to treat sudden wheezing or shortness of breath.
  • If you miss a dose of this medication, take it as soon as you remember it. If it is almost time for the next dose, skipped your missed dose and continue as normal. Do not take two doses to make up for a missed one.
  • Keep the medication in the container it came in. Store it at room temperature and away from heat and moisture.

Many Medicare Part D enrollees don't realize that the $1k per month script they fill for a$35 copay tacks the rest of the retail cost into the running total for their tier in the Part D plan. Many reach the donut hole much sooner than they thought possible. After crunching the math, it is apparent to me that the 3 meds I take that total more than 3k per month can be acquired for 90 days at less than the 30day copays in the donut hole. Careful management and knowing what you are truly paying can give big dividends when you balance part D purchases with imported meds. Judy, CA
