Atrovent HFA How to Take

Ipratropium belongs to the class of medications called bronchodilators. It is used to treat spasms in the lungs associated with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) (COPD), including chronic Bronchitis and emphysema. It works by opening the airways to make breathing easier.

Ipratropium inhalation aerosol should not be used to treat acute breathing problems where rapid results are required. Inhalers that contain "reliever" medications with fast action (e.g., salbutamol, terbutaline) should be used for acute treatment of breathing problems.

Any specific brand name of Atrovent HFA (Ipratropium-inh) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Atrovent HFA (Ipratropium-inh) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.
