How Does Striverdi Respimat Work?
Striverdi Respimat contains the medication olodaterol. Olodaterol is a long acting beta agonist. Beta agonists are commonly used to treat COPD as they relax and open the airways to make it easier to breathe.
As olodaterol is a long acting medication, the inhaler only needs to be taken once daily.
You may also need a reliever inhaler to treat any exacerbations of COPD that occur.
How is Striverdi Respimat Taken?
Striverdi Respimat contains a solution of olodaterol that is inhaled via the inhaler. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s information to ensure you take your inhaler properly. The following may help you understand how to set up and use your inhaler.
The inhaler case is supplied with cartridges which contain olodaterol. On first use, you will need to insert one cartridge as follows:
Inhaler Set Up
- Keeping the inhaler cap closed, remove the clear base by holding down the safety catch and pulling the base off.
- Insert one cartridge into the inhaler.
- Place the inhaler on a firm surface and then push down firmly until the cartridge clicks into place.
- Mark the tick box on the inhaler to keep track of how many cartridges you have used so far.
- Put the clear base back on. It will click when it is in place.
Prime the Inhaler
Once the cartridge is inserted, you need to prime the inhaler so that the medication is ready to take.
- Turn the clear base in the direction of the arrows (half a turn), you should hear a click.
- Open the cap so that it snaps fully open.
- Point the inhaler towards the ground.
- Press the dose release button and watch for a cloud of medication (this may not occur at first). Close the cap after pressing the button once.
- Repeat steps 1 to 4 until a cloud is visible when pressing the dose release button.
- The inhaler is now ready to use and will deliver 30 doses (60 puffs).
Take the Inhaler
- Sit or stand up straight to take your inhaler.
- With the cap closed, turn the clear base in the direction of the arrows (half a turn), you should hear a click.
- Open the cap so that it snaps fully open.
- Breathe out slowly and fully.
- Place the inhaler between your lips to form a seal. Don’t bite the inhaler, and avoid covering the air vents with your fingers.
- Point the inhaler to the back of your throat.
- While taking a slow, deep breath, press the dose release button and continue to breathe in slowly and deeply.
- Remove the inhaler from your mouth and hold your breath for 10 seconds, or as long as is comfortable.
- Breathe out slowly.
- To take the next puff, close the cap and repeat steps 2 to 9.
- After two puffs, close the cap until the next dose the following day.
The cartridge will need replacing after 30 days (30 doses), when the cartridge will show a red sticker to indicate is has been used up. A warning sticker will show when there are less than 10 puffs (5 days) remaining. At this point you must ensure you have another cartridge available for use.
Dosage of Striverdi Respimat
Striverdi Respimat inhaler should be taken once a day, with two puffs taken every morning.
Each puff contains 2.5 micrograms of olodaterol.
Are there any Side Effects?

- Irritation or inflammation of the nose or throat
- High blood pressure
- Aches and pains.
These side effects are likely to be mild. If they persist or become troublesome you should speak to your doctor for further advice.
