Table of contents:

Combivent Respimat is a combination medication used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It contains two active ingredients: ipratropium bromide, which is an anticholinergic agent that helps to relax the muscles around the airways, and albuterol sulfate, which is a beta2-adrenergic agonist that helps to open the airways by relaxing the muscles. The combination of the two medications works by relaxing the muscles around the airways, which allows the airways to open and makes breathing easier.
