Abstract

Anticholinergic drugs have been by asthmatics since antiquity (Belladone, Dature Stramonium). Many classical antihistamines have anticholinergic properties and could be aerosolized. However, ipratropium bromide (Atrovent®) is available as a metered-dose inhaler, and may prove useful in asthmatic patients with chronic exacerbation of vagal stimulation. An office/clinic test is recommended; combination with a beta-2-agonist is widely prescribed in Europe and Asia.
