What is Qvar inhaler used for?
One of the solutions for preventing asthma attacks is Qvar. Its generic name is Beclomethasone dipropionate and it is an inhaler. Qvar is a corticosteroid that is able to stop the release of chemicals that cause inflammation in the body. It is suitable for adults and kids who are five years old, utmost. If you have asthma attack, Qvar will not be of much help as it is geared for prevention and not acute treatment.
It will not help stop an attack that has already started. Being a corticosteroid, Beclomethasone dipropionate's role in preventing asthma attacks remains unknown. Similar to other corticosteroids, this medicine has anti-inflammatory effects. It can inhibit inflammatory cells, including mast cells in the lungs.
How to use Qvar inhaler?
The dose you should take will be determined by your doctor. Hence, make sure that you completely follow your doctor’s instructions. Don’t inhale more or fewer sprays than needed. If you are 12 years or older, and not using an inhaled corticosteroid, the start dose is 40mcg to 80 mcg two times daily. Your maximum dose is 320 mcg 2 times a day. A child who is 4 to 11 years needs 40 mcg twice daily and a maximum of 80 mcg 2 times a day.
Read the instruction label carefully to ensure that you remember to do the right thing. This inhaler might take one to two weeks to clear your symptoms. If not, contact your doctor and inform them.
As Qvar is not a rescue asthma medicine, continue to use your other prescriptions. Ensure that you tell your doctor if other asthma medicines stop working as expected. When using your inhaler for the first time, spray two test inhalations into the air. Ensure you are not targeting your face and don’t swallow. To limit your chances of catching a yeast infection, wash and rinse your mouth after using the inhaler.
Avoid washing the inhaler itself or make it wet. Instead, wipe its mouthpiece with a clean dry cloth or tissue. Do it once a week. When all the inhalations are finished, get the inhaler refilled. Note that the doctor might alter your dosage if you undergo surgery, suffer an asthma attack or get stressed out.
If stopping to use your Qvar to start using your oral tablets, do it gradually to avoid side effects. Your doctor might need to test your blood severally to ensure that Qvar is not weakening your immune system. Finally, take any skipped dose when you recall unless you are about to take your next dose to avoid an overdose.
