Ipratropium inhalation is used to prevent bronchospasm, or narrowing airways in the lungs, in people with bronchitis, emphysema, or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

The usual starting dose is 2 inhalations, 4 times per day. Additional inhalations may be taken, but the total should not exceed 12 in 24 hours. Not for use in children under 12. Use Ipratropium as directed by your doctor.

You should do some test sprays before using an inhaler for the first time or if it hasn't been used for more than a day.
Inhale this medication by mouth usually 4 times a day, or as directed by your doctor. Close your eyes and place your lips tightly around the mouthpiece to avoid spraying any of this medication into your eyes. This will minimize the risk of temporary blurred vision, other vision changes, and eye irritation.

If two inhalations/puffs are prescribed, wait at least one minute between them. If you are using other inhalers at the same time, wait several minutes between each medication.

Rinse your mouth after using this inhaler to prevent dry mouth and throat irritation.

If you are directed to take this medication regularly, it works best if used consistently at evenly spaced intervals. Remember to use it at the same times each day. Do not increase your dose, use it more frequently, or stop using this medication without first consulting your doctor. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Ipratropium.

More common side effects may include:
Blurred vision, breathlessness, bronchitis, cough, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, irritation from aerosol, nausea, nervousness, rash, stomach and intestinal upset, wheezing, worsening of symptoms.

An immediate allergic reaction (hives, swelling, rash, wheezing) is possible when you first use Ipratropium. Unless you are directed to do so by your doctor, do not take Ipratropium if you have the eye condition called narrow-angle glaucoma (high pressure inside the eye), an enlarged prostate, or obstruction in the neck of the bladder.

Keep Ipratropium away from your eyes. It can cause blurred vision, visual halos and colors, red eyes, pain, or even narrow-angle glaucoma. If any of these symptoms develop, see your doctor immediately.

If you develop eye pain, blurred vision, very dry nose or nosebleeds after using the nasal spray, call your doctor.
Do not increase your use of Ipratropium without your doctor's approval. If the drug begins to lose its effect, check with your doctor immediately.

Use with caution in:
· Glaucoma
· Cystic fibrosis
· Enlarged prostate gland (prostatic hypertrophy)
· Blockage of the outflow of urine from the bladder
