Description

Anticholinergic therapy has long been a cornerstone of management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but has not been included in treatment guidelines for asthma. In September 2015, tiotropium bromide was approved for use in adults with asthma; the indication has since been expanded to children ages 6 years and older. This article discusses appropriate patient selection and dosing, and the role of tiotropium bromide in asthma management.
