what is tiotropium?

I have been to the Doc's with what I thought was a throat infection but I was wrong, the symptoms are a tight constricted throat with the feeling of a lump and shortness of breath, my friend suggested it may be anxiety which is more than likely. I have been prescribed tiotropium inhaler, the only other one I have is Salbutamol, does anyone have experience of tiotropium please.
