ipratropium-bromide

Ipratropium/salbutamol

The combination preparation ipratropium/salbutamol is a formulation containing ipratropium bromide and salbutamol sulfate (albuterol sulfate) used in the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. It is marketed by Boehringer Ingelheim as metered dose inhaler (MDI) and nebuliser preparations under the trade name Combivent.

Since it contains a CFC based propellant, it is being phased out in European Union countries.
