What Is Stiolto Respimat?
Stiolto Respimat (tiotropium and olodaterol) is prescribed for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema and/or chronic bronchitis), otherwise known as COPD. It combines two different medications in an inhaler used as a maintenance bronchodilator. The inhaler delivers a soft mist that is easy to inhale.
Stiolto Respimat is to be used once daily. Its effects are felt in as little as five minutes and last up to 24 hours. It will not stop an acute attack and is not to be used as a rescue inhaler.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
COPD is a life-threatening illness for which there is no cure. Medications like Stiolto Respimat can temporarily alleviate breathing problems but will not halt disease progression or increase life expectancy. Living with a grim long-term prognosis is stressful in and of itself. Add to that the stress that comes from not being able to afford the medication that helps prevent exacerbations, and the negative impact on the patient’s quality of life is undeniable.
Maintaining an uninterrupted supply of expensive medications like Stiolto Respimat can be difficult even for those with prescription coverage because of the high copays and other out-of-pocket costs. Many people who are eligible for some help with the cost of Stiolto Respimat aren’t even aware of the existence of patient assistance plans. That’s why Simplefill puts so much effort into raising public awareness about patient assistance programs. It’s just part of our mission to connect people who need help paying for essential medications with the patient assistance programs that can provide it.
How Does Stiolto Respimat Work?
Olodaterol is a long-acting beta2-agonist that helps control wheezing and relieve shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness. Tiotropium is an anticholinergic that reduces bronchospasm. Together, the two active components of Stiolto Respimat help cut down on the number of COPD exacerbations by relaxing the bronchi and reducing their resistance to airflow.
