Tiogiva is licensed as a maintenance bronchodilator treatment to relieve symptoms of patients with COPD. The recommended dose is inhalation of the contents of one capsule once daily via the included dry powder inhaler, at the same time each day.
To use the inhaler, the patient should load a capsule into the device then push the piercing button to release the medication. When the patient breathes in, the capsule vibrates to confirm the rate of inhalation is sufficient. Visual confirmation of dose delivery is also possible as the capsules are clear.
