Respimat Inhaler - What is it for

  • ​Respimat inhalers are inhaler devices that help deliver a specific amount of medication to your lungs.
  • They are used to deliver medications that are for the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Both asthma and COPD affect the lungs which makes it harder for the person to breathe.
  • Respimat inhalers deliver a very small dose of the medication each time, thus you usually do not feel or taste anything after a dose.
  • Hence, it is important to use the Respimat inhaler correctly to get the full dosage and benefit from the medication.
  • This allows the medication to have a higher chance of reaching the small airways, which increases the effectiveness of the medication and helps reduce any side effects.
