What is Spiriva Handihaler used for?
Spiriva Handihaler is prescribed to treat and prevent the symptoms of Chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD). This can include shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing. It is also prescribed to manage bronchitis and emphysema which have similar symptoms. The medicine helps you breathe more easily by relaxing the muscles of the airways. This allows for more room for the air to flow to and from the lungs. This is not meant to treat sudden breathing concerns as it will not work long enough to be effective. Spiriva Handihaler is a long-term maintenance drug that improves your condition when used regularly and consistently.
