Information about Rotacap. Tiova-18mcg

Tiova rotacaps contain the bronchodilator tiotropium, which is used for long-term treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and to relieve symptoms of bronchospasm, such as shortness of breath, chronic cough with sputum production, tightness of the chest and wheezing.

Tiova rotacaps contain the bronchodilator tiotropium in powder form (bromide monohydrate), which is a long-acting anticholinergic that acts on specific muscarinic receptors in the bronchioles of the lung to inhibit the interaction of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger of the nervous system) with muscarinic receptors, preventing spasm of the airway wall caused by acetylcholine. Blocking the action of acetylcholine in the airways, causes the smooth muscle in the airway walls to relax and allows the airways to dilate (widen) which increases air flow into the lungs and relieves bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways). Inhaled tiotropium goes directly into the lungs and very little is absorbed into the blood circulation. Regular long-term use of Tiova helps reduce symptoms of COPD such as shortness of breath, chronic cough with sputum production, tightness of the chest and wheezing.

INGREDIENTS:

Tiotropium (18mcg)

Benifits:

Tiova rotacaps are used for the long-term treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other obstructive airways disease, like chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. Tiova rotacaps contain a powder that when inhaled, using the Rotahaler device (which is especially designed for use with Tiova capsules and can be obtained separately), relieves symptoms caused by bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways), such as shortness of breath, chronic cough with sputum production, tightness of the chest and wheezing. Tiova rotacaps also reduce the frequency of exacerbations and improve exercise tolerance and health-related quality of life, but they do not cure COPD.

Direction to Use

  • You should take your Tiova rotacaps every day for as long as your doctor recommends. Tiova rotacaps contain an inhalation powder; they are not for oral use and should not be swallowed.
  • You should only use your Tiova capsules with the Rotahaler device, which is especially designed for use with Tiova capsules. Inhale the contents of one capsule per day at the same time each day; following the instructions you have been given.
  1. Open the dust cap and then the mouthpiece by pulling upwards.
  2. Place one capsule in the chamber and close the mouthpiece until it clicks.
  3. Press the piercing button once to release the powder when you breathe in.
  4. Breathe out completely then place the mouthpiece in your mouth and inhale slowly until your lungs are full. You may need to repeat this step until you have inhaled all the powder, but remove the mouthpiece between each breath.
  5. Remove the capsule and dispose.
  6. Close the mouthpiece and dust cap
  • If you miss a dose of Tiova take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time to take the next dose, then skip the missed dose. Do not take a double dose.
