INTRODUCTION

TIOMIST contains Tiotropium bromide which belongs to a class of drugs called inhaled anticholinergic medications. It relaxes the muscles of your lungs. This helps to decrease and prevent shortness of breath. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, commonly known as COPD is a group of progressive lung diseases. The most common are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Tiotropium bromide is an anticholinergic drug used to prevent bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways in the lungs) in people with bronchitis, emphysema, or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
