Tiova Rotacaps are an anticholinergic drug that clears the nostrils and lungs, thus help reducing inflammation and dilate the constricted bronchioles. The medicine is prescribed for treating and preventing bronchospasm associated with reversible COPD, acute asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. Patients requiring asthma treatment can consume this medicine in an appropriate dosage after consulting their doctor. The drug relieves symptoms caused by bronchospasm, such as shortness of breath, wheezing, tightness in the chest, and chronic cough with sputum production.
The active ingredient in this asthma medicine is Tiotropium Bromide, a long-acting bronchodilator used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Tiotropium Bromide is available in a Rotahaler dosage form, which offers minimal side effects as the active ingredient targets the lungs directly and produces an outcome. The Tiova Rotacaps medication from Cipla has a rapid mode of action, and this dosage has very few possibilities of harmful side effects.
Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that obstructs the muscarinic receptors in the airways. Tiotropium bromide acts by inhibiting the interaction of acetylcholine with muscarinic receptors, preventing spasms of the airway. It causes the smooth muscle in the airway walls to relax and dilate. Thus, it increases the airflow in the lungs, relieves bronchospasm, and helps achieve a better breathing process.
The medicine works best if you consume it as per your doctor's advice. He can suggest an appropriate dosage after a detailed analysis of your condition and medical history. The recommended dose starts from 18 mcg once a day. Always try to take the dose at the same time each day, as it reduces the chances of missing a dose. Remember that this can vary extensively from one patient to another, depending on the severity of the condition.
