Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
Fortunately, Spiriva capsules are not harmful if swallowed.
I would let your doctor know
and use the next dose tomorrow with the regular inhalation for your COPD
hopefully you are not smoking
but swallowing a spiriva pill will not cause side effects or toxicity
let me know if you have questions.
