Who should not use Spiriva?

People with certain medical conditions or on other medications may not be able to use Spiriva (tiotropium), so talk to your doctor about these before starting the medication.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should also consult their doctors beforehand, since the effects of Spiriva on a developing fetus or baby are not clear.
