ABOUT COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common, preventable, and treatable disease that is characterized by persistent respiratory symptoms and airflow limitation. But sticking to a treatment plan that includes a maintenance medicine and lifestyle changes can help make COPD symptoms more manageable.

COPD is a chronic lung disease that makes it harder to breathe. It includes two components: chronic bronchitis and emphysema. You could have one of these, or both

What are the symptoms of COPD?

Shortness
or shallowness
of breath

An ongoing
“smoker's cough”
that produces
mucus

Chest
tightness

Wheezing
or whistling
when you
breathe

COPD symptoms can seem like other conditions that make breathing difficult. These conditions include the common cold, flu, respiratory infection, and even pneumonia. But unlike these conditions, COPD doesn't go away after a few days or weeks.



WHAT CAN CAUSE A FLARE-UP?

COPD is a disease that can get worse over time, which means that symptoms can turn into something called a flare-up or exacerbation. It’s important to know what can cause a flare-up and what you can do to help guard against them. STIOLTO contains tiotropium, which has been shown to help significantly reduce the risk of flare-ups.

Most flare-ups are caused by a lung infection like the common cold, so germs are a threat. Other causes, called triggers, can irritate your lungs and cause flare-ups.

Here are some of the most common triggers that should be avoided

Weather that is
very hot, very cold,
or very humid

Pollution outside from smog and ozone, or inside from tobacco smoke and wood-burning fires

Household
cleaning products
with bleach or
ammonia

Allergies to dust,
animals, or pets

You can control your COPD symptoms by taking a maintenance therapy, like STIOLTO RESPIMAT, every day.
Ask your doctor if STIOLTO RESPIMAT is right for you.
