Tiotropium is a long-acting, specific, muscarinic receptor antagonist, in clinical medicine often called an anticholinergic. By binding to the muscarinic receptors in the bronchial smooth musculature, tiotropium inhibits the cholinergic (bronchoconstrictive) effects of acetylcholine, released from parasympathetic nerve endings.
