Ipratropium Bromide - Overview
Ipratropium bromide is a bronchodilator medication used to help relieve symptoms of bronchospasm. People in need of an Atrovent or ipratropium bromide nasal spray prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe medication if safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Atrovent (Ipratropium Bromide)?
Ipratropium (specifically ipratropium bromide), marketed under the name Atrovent, belongs to a class of medications known as anticholinergic bronchodilators (similar to Spiriva (tiotropium). Atrovent HFA is indicated for use as a bronchodilator to help with bronchospasm resulting from conditions such as COPD, emphsema and chronic bronchitis. As an anticholinergic medication, ipratropium bromide is thought to block the action of acetylcholine and, consequently, block reflexes mediated by the vagus nerve, eventually impacting bronchial smooth muscle. Ipratropium bromide is frequently used in conjunction with albuterol in the management of bronchospasm associated with conditions such as asthma.
Ipratropium Bromide - Cost and Dosage
Structurally similar to atropine, ipratropium bromide itself is found as a white to off-white crystalline substance that dissolves in water. Ipratropium bromide nasal spray is moderately affordable at under $23 per nasal spray at many pharmacies. Ipratropium bromide (Atrovent) coupons may also be available online to help reduce any costs associated with the medications. Some insurance plans will also cover the cost of ipratropium bromide or Atrovent when prescribed. The Atrovent HFA inhalation aerosol comes as a pressurized metered-dose aerosol unit that can be used for oral inhalation. Each canister contains approximately 200 inhalations and delivers 17 mcg of ipratropium bromide out of the mouthpiece and 21 mcg of ipratropium bromide from the valve with some variability depending on how the patient actually uses the canister. Atrovent HFA inhalation aerosol requires priming before use.
