Qvar Inhaler 100mcg general information

What is Qvar used for?

Qvar inhaler is an inhaled asthma medication used to reduce symptoms and exacerbations of asthma, and to prevent but not treat asthma attack, to improve lung function. Qvar inhaler is known as a “preventer” asthma medication and is used regularly as part of a long-term asthma management plan, which may also include a “reliever” or “rescue” medication, for use when needed. Qvar inhaler blocks the inflammatory process, which causes swelling in the airways of the lungs, and reduces symptoms of asthma, including wheezing, cough tightness of the chest and shortness of breath.

How does Qvar work?

Qvar inhaler contains beclometasone dipropionate, which is a corticosteroid and anti-inflammatory medication that blocks the production of inflammatory chemicals released in the airways in response to asthma trigger, such as an allergens or irritants in the air. Inflammation is one of the underlying causes of asthma along with bronchospasm, which is constriction (narrowing of the bronchioles (small airways). Qvar inhaler works directly on the airway walls to reduce inflammatory reactions in the airways, which helps to prevent symptoms of asthma caused by swollen and inflamed airways, like wheezing, cough, tightness of the chest and shortness of breath. It does not relieve bronchospasm which happens during an asthma attack and needs a “reliever” medication to open the airways.

What does Qvar contain?

Qvar inhaler contains the active ingredient beclometasone dipropionate, a corticosteroid and anti-inflammatory, used as an asthma prevention medication. It also contains ethanol and norflurane and each actuation of the inhaler releases a 100mcg dose of beclometasone dipropionate. There are 200 metered doses per pack.
