Overview

Qvar steroid Asthma Inhaler Online

Qvar is a steroid inhalation device used in the treatment of Asthma to help aid in decreasing symptom exacerbation. Qvar is a preventer device and should be used regularly for maximum benefit. Symptoms commonly associated with Asthma are wheezing, shortness of breath and gasping for air. The active ingredient in Qvar is Beclomethasone. 

Using steroids inhalers such as Qvar, Clenil, Flixotide, Pulmicort, Seretide (contains also bronchodilator) or Symbicort (contains also bronchodilators) will decrease the inflammation in your airways as well as decreasing the hyper-reactive response to allergens hence reducing symptoms.

 

FAQ

  • Is Qvar suitable for children?

    Use in children under 12 years Qvar Aerosol is not recommended.

  • What should I do if the inhaler is not working?

    If you think your usual treatment is not working, for example, your symptoms are not getting better, or are getting worse, or you need to use more puffs from your reliever inhaler, or if your reliever inhaler does not seem to be working as well as usual, or your peak flow falls, please tell your doctor. Your asthma may be getting worse.

  • What to do If you use too much Qvar?

    It is important that you take your dose as stated on the pharmacist’s label, or as advised by your doctor. You should not increase or decrease your dose without seeking medical advice. If you accidentally take more puffs than recommended, please tell your doctor.

Side Effects

Side Effects of Qvar

Stop using your inhaler and tell your doctor immediately or go to the casualty department at your nearest hospital if the following happens: an allergic reaction (swelling of the lips, face or neck leading to severe difficulty in breathing; skin rash or hives). This is a very serious but rare side effect. You may need urgent medical attention or hospitalisation.

Treatment with Qvar Aerosol may affect the normal production of corticosteroids in the body. Keep using your inhaler but see your doctor as soon as possible if you become unwell, particularly with any of the following:

  • abdominal pain

  • weakness

  • vomiting.

This is especially important if you have been exposed to other stress such as other illness, surgery, or infection.

The following side effects have been reported for high doses, taken for prolonged periods:

  • bone thinning

  • clouding of the lens of the eye (cataract) resulting in blurred vision

  • loss of vision due to abnormally high pressure in the eye.

The following side effects may also occur in patients taking beclometasone dipropionate. If you experience any of these effects, keep using your inhaler but see your doctor if they last for a while or they are worrying you:

  • hoarseness

  • difficulty in swallowing accompanied by earache and swollen glands, sore throat (pharyngitis

  • a sore mouth or thrush (white spots in your mouth and throat). These are less likely if you rinse your mouth out with water after using your inhaler. If you get thrush your doctor may recommend a medicine to treat you

  • feeling sick

  • headache

  • feeling dizzy or faint

  • tremor

  • change in taste

  • difficulty in breathing, increase in wheezing, shortness of breath and cough (bronchospasm)

  • sleeping problems, depression or feeling worried, restless, nervous, over-excited or irritable.

Children or adolescents who are using the inhaler for a prolonged period may grow more slowly. Your doctor may, therefore, wish to monitor the height of a child receiving prolonged treatment with Qvar Aerosol.
