*STIOLTO is not for the relief of sudden symptoms of COPD. Always carry a rescue inhaler with you.

Only STIOLTO starts to work fast and lasts

Unlike SPIRIVA RESPIMAT, STIOLTO helps keep your breathing under control for 24 hours and also starts working in just minutes to help you breathe better.

So, 2 puffs, once a day, can help put better breathing within your reach—all day and all night.

STIOLTO is not for the relief of sudden symptoms of COPD. Always carry a rescue inhaler with you.

STIOLTO's slow-moving mist helps you inhale the medicine

With powder-free STIOLTO, you won’t have to struggle with putting pills into your inhaler on a daily basis again.

That’s because instead of powder, the STIOLTO RESPIMAT inhaler delivers a slow-moving mist that helps you inhale the medicine.

Stop reaching to catch your breath. Reach for STIOLTO instead.

STIOLTO relaxes AND opens airways

While SPIRIVA RESPIMAT works to only relax airways, STIOLTO works to both relax and open airways to help you breathe better.

That’s because STIOLTO combines 2 medicines in a slow-moving mist—all without steroids.

If better breathing and health-related quality of life matter most, upgrade from SPIRIVA RESPIMAT to STIOLTO today.

Now is the time to see if STIOLTO is right for you

A few things to ask before your next doctor visit:

  • 1. Does my current maintenance treatment relax AND open my airways?
  • 2. Is my current treatment steroid free?
  • 3. Does my medicine start working in minutes?
  • 4. Is my current inhaler powder free?
