Respimat® re-usable: Information for healthcare professionals

The Respimat® inhaler is now re-usable

This website has been built for healthcare professionals as a source of information on the Respimat® re-usable inhaler. On the 17th of September 2019, the Respimat® inhaler changed from an inhaler that needs to be replaced each month to a re-usable inhaler, where the cartridge may be removed when empty and a new one inserted. This website is intended to provide the necessary information for healthcare professionals who have patients that are using the Respimat® inhaler.

This change was applied to all Respimat® re-usable products: Spiriva® Respimat® (tiotropium), Spiolto® Respimat® (tiotropium/olodaterol) and Striverdi® Respimat® (olodaterol). Package leaflets and SmPCs for the currently available Respimat® re-usable products are available using the links in the Product Information section of this website. If you require more information, please contact our Medical Information team using the details at the top of this page, or the live chat function using the icon to the left of the page.
