Ipratropium Bromide

Drug Info for ipratropium bromide

Ipratropium nasal spray is available in two strengths that are used to treat different conditions. Ipratropium nasal spray 0.06% is used to relieve a runny nose caused by the common cold or seasonal allergies (hay fever) in adults and children age 5 and older. Ipratropium nasal spray 0.03% is used to relieve a runny nose caused by year-round allergic and nonallergic rhinitis (runny nose and stuffiness) in adults and children age 6 and older. Ipratropium nasal spray does not relieve nasal congestion, sneezing, or postnasal drip caused by these conditions. Ipratropium nasal spray is in a class of medications called anticholinergics. It works by reducing the amount of mucus produced in the nose.

Ipratropium bromide is a medication used to treat asthma and chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD or emphysema). Ipratropium bromide works by opening up your airways and decreasing mucus secretion. Ipratropium bromide is a generic medication also sold under the brand name Atrovent. Ipratropium bromide was discovered in 1976 and approved for use in the US in 1986. In the treatment of emphysema and asthma, ipratropium bromide use is common.

  • Into the nose

Wait a few seconds before using the spray in the same nostril. Then use the spray in your other nostril by following the same steps.

If the spray pump gets clogged, hold the tip of the bottle under warm running water for about 1 minute. Dry the pump and prime it again.

Nasal routeAfter using the nasal spray, wipe the tip of the bottle with a clean tissue and put the cap back on.

Keep track of the number of sprays you use. Throw the bottle away after you use 345 sprays even if some liquid remains in the bottle.

Read and follow the patient instructions that come with this medicine. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

If you do not use the bottle for more than 7 days, clean the spray tip and prime it again by releasing seven sprays.

Your doctor will tell you how much medicine to use. Do not use more than directed.

Nasal routeThis medicine is for use only in the nose. Do not get any of it in your eyes or on your skin. If it does get on these areas, rinse it off right away.

Some patients using this medicine may feel better right away. For others, it may take 1 or 2 weeks before the medicine helps. Keep using the medicine on a regular schedule as your doctor ordered.

Take the plastic dust cap and safety clip off of the spray pump.

If you are using the spray pump for the first time or if it has been more than a week since you last used the medicine, you will need to prime the spray pump. Hold the bottle with your thumb on the bottom of the bottle and your index and middle fingers on the tabs on the side of the pump.

Hold the bottle upright and point it away from your eyes. Push up quickly and firmly with your thumb 7 times. You do not need to prime the pump again unless it has been more than 24 hours since you last used it. Then you may need to prime the pump with 2 sprays.

Nasal routeBefore using the medicine, gently blow your nose to clear the nostrils.

Put the tip of the spray pump into one nostril, and hold the other nostril closed.

Tilt your head forward slightly and spray the medicine into your nostril.

Take the spray pump out of your nostril and sniff deeply through your nose. Then breathe out through your mouth.

Tilt your head back for a few seconds so the medicine can go to the back of your nose.
