A healthcare provider may prescribe ipratropium bromide (Atrovent®) to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or a runny nose. The prescription drug is available in several forms, including an inhaler, an inhalation solution, and a nasal spray. Generally, the medication is taken two to four times a day, depending on the particular form of Atrovent and the particular medical condition being treated. The dosage of ipratropium your healthcare provider prescribes will be based on several factors, such as your age, the medical condition being treated, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking.
