Were you looking for information about Ipratropium? Ipratroprium is a common misspelling of ipratropium.
People who suffer from a runny nose or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can often benefit from using ipratropium bromide (Atrovent®), an anticholinergic that is available by prescription. The medication works by decreasing the production of fluid in the nasal passages and relaxing the muscles in the airways to allow more air into and out of the lungs. Most people tolerate ipratropium well; and even when side effects occur, they are usually minor. Some side effects of ipratropium include upper respiratory infections, sinus infections, and urinary tract infections. Ipratropium comes in the form of an inhaler, an inhalation solution, and a nasal spray.
