Ipratropium Bromide - Overview
Ipratropium bromide is a bronchodilator medication used to help relieve symptoms of bronchospasm. People in need of an ipratropium bromide prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe medication if safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Ipratropium Bromide?
Ipratropium (specifically ipratropium bromide), marketed under the name Atrovent, belongs to a class of medications known as anticholinergic bronchodilators - similar to tiotropium (Spiriva). Ipratropium 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 medication combinations such as Combivent and DuoNeb in the management of bronchospasm associated with 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 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 when prescribed. The ipratropium 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. Ipratropium HFA inhalation aerosol requires priming before use.
Can I Buy Ipratropium Bromide Online?
Ipratropium bromide is a prescription medication in the United States and ipratropium OTC (over-the-counter) is not available. As such, one cannot legally buy ipratropium bromide nasal spray online. People who might need an ipratropium bromide prescription can connect with a licensed medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe an ipratropium inhaler or ipratropium nasal spray if appropriate to do so.
Ipratropium Bromide - Side Effects
Ipratropium, like all medications, can cause side effects when used. Side effects resulting from ipratropium bromide use include dry mouth, bitter taste, glaucoma, urinary retention, constipation and rash. People with a history of an allergy or hypersensitivity to ipratropium should not use those nasal sprays or medications. Ipratropium and alcohol use should be avoided. Anyone with concerns about possible side effects from ipratropium use should discuss them with one's medical provider and pharmacist.
