Combivent, the brand-name form for ipratropium
and albuterol, is a prescription medication used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease, or COPD. Ipratropium and albuterol belong to a group of drugs called bronchodilators,
which cause the smooth muscles of the airways to relax, making it easier to breathe. This
medication comes in an aerosol spray form and is used 4 to 6 times a day. Common side
effects of Combivent include fatigue, hoarseness, and dizziness. Do not drive or operate heavy
machinery until you know how Combivent affects you. Use this medication only as prescribed.
