Have a question ? we’re here to help
A Beclu Inhaler is a pressurised inhalation solution that is used to help prevent the symptoms of mild, moderate or severe asthma.
The active ingredient is beclometasone dipropionate, which is in a group of medicines called corticosteroids, which are often referred to simply as steroids. They have anti-inflammatory action which reduces the swelling and irritation in the walls of the small air passages in the lungs, easing breathing problems.
We advise that our patients first consult with a doctor or prescribed before using a Beclu Inhaler to ensure that they receive effective treatment for their condition.
It is important that you know how to use your inhaler properly. You must always use your Beclu Inhaler exactly as your doctor has told you so you know how, when and how many puffs to inhale, and how often you must use your inhaler. This may be covered at an asthma review. If you are unsure, check with your doctor or pharmacist.
The starting dose will depend on how severe your asthma is and will be decided by your doctor.
To use your inhaler, follow these steps:
Gently squeeze and pull apart the mouthpiece cover
Hold the inhaler upright with your thumb below the mouthpiece, and exhale comfortably
Place the mouthpiece between your teeth and close your lips around it, but do not bite down
Simultaneously hold the top of the inhaler whilst inhaling deeply
Hold your breath briefly, remove the inhaler, and exhale slowly
Wait 30 seconds, then repeat steps 2-5
After use, replace the mouthpiece cover to keep out dust and fluff
Using a Beclu Inhaler, like other medicines, can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
The following side effects have been reported whilst using a Beclu Inhaler. If you suffer from any of these side effects, including any not mentioned in the patient information leaflet, tell your doctor as soon as possible, but do not stop treatment unless told do:
thrush in the mouth and throat
sore throat or tongue
Your doctor will try and prevent these effects by prescribing Beclu in the lowest dose possible to control your asthma.
However, if you notice an immediate worsening of wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing right after using your Beclu Inhaler, stop taking it, promptly use a face-acting ‘reliever’ inhaler, and contact your doctor immediately. Your doctor will assess your asthma and may adjust your treatment, prescribing an alternative inhaler.
