Atrovent is a preventative inhaler that's clinically proven to relax the airways and prevent asthma attacks. It's also available to people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), bronchitis and emphysema.
Atrovent is a preventer not a reliever inhaler. Reliever inhalers are used at the point of an asthma attack or breathlessness and work quickly to relieve symptoms. Atrovent is slower to work and is designed to prevent these symptoms happening by being taken on a daily basis.

Atrovent is a hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) propelled inhaler containing the active ingredient ipratropium bromide. Ipratropium bromide is an antimuscarinic bronchodilator. It tackles asthma by relaxing the airways.
Atrovent unit dose vials (UDVs) are for use in a nebuliser. Nebulisers are machines that are used in a breathing emergency. They convert a liquid form of Atrovent into a breathable spray in a higher dose than a puffer inhaler.
The active ingredient relaxes the airways to prevent the constriction and tightness that marks asthma and other breathing problems.
Because it's an antimuscarinic, Atrovent prevents the muscarinic lung receptors from reacting to the chemical acetylcholine that can cause airway constriction. Its effects last for three to six hours and they begin to work effectively after 30 to 60 minutes.
The Atrovent CFC-free inhaler is usually taken three to four times a day in adults with a single or double puff dosage. However, your doctor will prescribe an appropriate dose for you during your consultation.
If it's been awhile since you used the inhaler, or it's a new one, you should puff two doses away from your face to test its working correctly.
You should keep your Atrovent inhaler clean and avoid dropping it. If you do drop the inhaler check it is working by puffing a dose into the air. If it doesn't work correctly you should obtain a new inhaler. Always replace the cap to ensure no dirt or easily inhaled objects become lodged in the mouthpiece.
To clean your Atrovent inhaler you can remove the spray canister and wash the inhaler piece with soapy water. Allow it to dry completely before replacing the canister or the spray function becomes compromised. More detailed instructions are included on the medicine sheet.
Always keep your Atrovent inhaler away from sources of heat, light, moisture and cold. This includes hot cars for example.
If you struggle to simultaneously press the top of your Atrovent and breathe in you may benefit from a spacer.
Spacers are large plastic mouthpieces that cover your mouth and nose. This enables you to deliver the dose and breathe it in at a steady rate. Children and those with dexterity issues find them particularly useful. Ask your doctor about the right spacer for the Atrovent inhaler. It's important to have the correct size so that the medicine doesn't escape. The correct match for Atrovent is the AeroChamber Plus spacer.
Atrovent is available as a 20mcg inhaler canister. One canister holds 200 puffs of Atrovent.
If you miss a dose take it when you remember, but skip it if the next dose is approaching.
