A Qvar inhaler is a type of preventative asthma inhaler. The active ingredient, beclometasone dipropionate, is a low dose steroid which makes it less likely that your lungs will respond to an asthma trigger. Preventative inhalers cannot treat an asthma attack once it has already begun, so it is important to still carry your reliever inhaler.
Qvar acts directly on a number of the different parts of the immune system involved in the pathophysiology of asthma.
Qvar contains active ingredient beclometasone dipropionate, a corticosteroid which works by reducing the overactive immune response. When used on a daily basis, it prevents inflammation and irritation in the lungs, reducing the chance of an asthma attack when exposed to a trigger.
There are three types of inhalers available from euroClinix: Autohaler, Aerosol and Easi-Breathe, which differ slightly, but have the same function.
The Qvar Aerosol releases the medication when you press down on the canister whilst inhaling. The Qvar Easi-Breathe has an attached mouthpiece cap and releases the beclometasone automatically when you inhale. The Qvar Autohaler also releases the medication when you breathe in, but you must remember to lower the leaver in between doses.
All Qvar inhalers come with instructions on how to use them and you might find the Autohaler and Easi-Breathe easier to administer, as they do not require you to press the canister whilst inhaling. Your doctor will tell you how many puffs you will need to take but the medication may take a few days to take effect. Do not exceed the amount prescribed without first consulting your doctor, use your reliever inhaler to help control any breathing difficulties instead.
All Qvar inhalers are available to buy online in two different strengths: 50mcg or 100mcg. Your doctor will usually prescribe an initial dosage of either one or two puffs twice a day. All three types of inhalers may feel and taste slightly different to your previous inhalers as they have an extra-fine aerosol, which results in more medication reaching your lungs. As a result, our doctor may prescribe a lower dosage than you have used with previous inhalers.
If you suffer from asthma attacks you should be able to safely use a form of the Qvar inhaler to prevent the symptoms. However, it will not be prescribed to you if you are allergic to beclometasone, its active ingredient. If you have suffered from tuberculosis (TB), are taking any other medication or are pregnant or breastfeeding you should mention this in your consultation as the doctor will prescribe your medication accordingly. Also, it is recommended by our doctors that you shouldn't buy the Qvar inhaler if you have a history of lung or chest infections, or if you need to avoid alcohol. This is because Qvar inhalers contain a small amount of ethanol.
Like with all medications, some people can experience side effects whilst using the Qvar Aerosol, Autohaler or Easi-Breathe. If you have trouble breathing after using your inhaler or if you suffer from skin rashes or swelling, you may be allergic to beclometasone and should consult your doctor immediately. Other potential side effects associated with the Qvar inhaler may include abdominal pain, nausea, infections to the throat or mouth and trouble sleeping.
Qvar inhalers are available to buy safely and securely from euroClinix to significantly improve your breathing and effectively prevent the symptoms of an asthma attack. You can order the Qvar Aerosol, Autohaler or Easi-Breathe in 50 mcg or 100 mcg doses after completing a quick and secure online consultation with one of our doctors. Your condition will then be assessed and you will be prescribed the appropriate medication and most effective dosage. euroClinix provides a free next day delivery service, so you can begin your treatment immediately.
Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.
