Watch for Mix-Ups Between Spiriva Respimat and Combivent Respimat
You'll see two new inhalers for COPD, Spiriva Respimat (tiotropium) and Combivent Respimat (ipratropium/salbutamol).
Think of them as different forms of existing agents.
Spiriva Respimat (tiotropium) is just the soft-mist spray version of Spiriva HandiHaler. Both work the same to control and reduce COPD symptoms...and cost about $70/month.
