Frequently asked questions about ipratropium

What is ipratropium?

Ipratropium is a prescription medication that is administered as an oral inhalant to control the symptoms of various lung diseases. While it does not cure these conditions, a bronchodilator such as ipratropium helps patients dealing with lung conditions prevent uncomfortable symptoms such as wheezing and coughing. Ipratropium is also prescribed to treat air flow blockage and symptoms caused by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

What is ipratropium used to treat?

Ipratropium is prescribed to help patients control the symptoms of various lung diseases such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition that narrows and irritates the airways of the lungs. Affecting nearly 24 million Americans, asthma is a very common, but non-contagious respiratory disease that usually begins in childhood and continues into adulthood. Asthma may vary in severity from person to person.

Common symptoms of asthma include:
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Coughing
- Wheezing


Chronic bronchitis is long-term inflammation of the bronchioles and is characterized by productive coughing that occurs over several months. Chronic bronchitis may be caused by smoking tobacco products, air pollution, or allergens and may lead to COPD.

Common symptoms of bronchitis include:
- Coughing
- Wheezing
- Shortness of breath
- Low-grade fever
- Mucus production (usually yellowish or green in color)
- Chest pain


Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs in your lungs have become damaged. This can be caused by smoking, inhaling harmful chemicals, and regular exposure to air pollution. Emphysema is most commonly characterized by chronic shortness of breath that can lead to additional adverse symptoms.

How does ipratropium work?

Ipratropium belongs to a classification of medication known as bronchodilators. These medications help relax the muscles that surround the airways in the lungs (known as the bronchi) to help prevent symptoms of lung damage and lung disease.

Symptoms of these conditions commonly occur after exercise or exposure to an irritant (such as secondhand smoke or airborne allergens). Bronchodilators help people mitigate and prevent the symptoms listed above by relaxing the muscles that surround the airways, which encourages airflow to and from the lungs. Ipratropium does not cure patients of asthma or lung disease, but it can improve quality of life and prevent potentially severe breathing problems.

What are the common side effects of ipratropium?

The use of ipratropium may cause side effects. If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days or become severe, talk to your health care provider.

Common symptoms reported when taking ipratropium include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Difficulty with urination
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Dizziness
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea and vomiting

More severe side effects are rare but are usually a result of an allergy to ipratropium.

Seek medical attention right away if you experience any of the following adverse reactions:

  • Tachycardia (fast or irregular heartbeat)
  • Chest pain
  • Rash/ hives
  • Swelling of the face, throat, or extremities
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Throat irritation

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with ipratropium. Ipratropium can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are planning to become pregnant, are pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding.

What is the typical starting dose of ipratropium?

The specific dosage of ipratropium will vary depending on the condition requiring treatment. Talk to your health care provider about how to administer ipratropium correctly and how often to inhale the medication.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of ipratropium without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
