Kelhale inhaler contains beclometasone dipropionate, which is one of a group of medicines known as corticosteroids.
Kelhale is used to prevent the symptoms of mild, moderate, or severe asthma, in adults over 18 years of age who require regular treatment.
Kelhale works deep in your lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the inflammation, swelling and irritation in the airways. This type of medicine is known as a preventer. It needs to be taken regularly every day, even if you have no symptoms. This inhaler will not give immediate relief of wheezing or breathlessness during a sudden asthma attack. You will need to use a reliever inhaler, which contains a different medicine.
