Spiriva contains the active ingredient Tiotropium, it is a Bronchiodialotor.

Most medications take at least a month to reach their full level of efficacy in your body. If it is not working after this time period, it just may not be the right medication for you and you should definitely speak to your doctor, again.

As with any medication, some people get great results from them and some don't, it just depends on your body chemistry.

Did your doctor tell you how long they wanted you to continue to try it?

ofcourse it works, as we know, it is the best drug for chronic bronchitis and emphysema available in the market.. it will not work if your not a COPD patient.. if your not experiencing breathlessness anymore and your free from exacerbation and has not been admitted again to hospital, then i should say that spiriva is really working on your physique. your doctor should explain it to you..
