Atrovent HFA - Iipratropium bromide HFA Inhalation Aerosol is not a steroid. It is an anticholinergic bronchodilator which means it works against the choline neurotransmitter in the lungs which normally tells the smooth muscles to contract. In other words the involuntary muscles of the lungs relax and therefore easier to breath. Hope this helps? Best of luck.
