What is Qvar Inhaler prescribed for?
Doctors commonly prescribe Qvar as a maintenance medication to be taken on a daily basis to help prevent asthma flare-ups. Asthma is a respiratory condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Patients can decrease the number and severity of their asthma attacks when the regular use of their prescribed Qvar Inhaler dosage.
You can buy Qvar Inhaler online at My Drug Center. We offer the Beclomethasone Inhaler generic as well.
How does Qvar inhaler work?
Qvar Inhaler comes as a pressurized, metered-dose aerosol for oral inhalation. This medication belongs to a group of drugs known as corticosteroids. It contains the active ingredient Beclomethasone, and when it is inhaled, it helps reduce inflammatory responses in the body that cause asthma attacks. Patients can buy Qvar Inhaler (Beclomethasone) in the following strengths: 40mcg, and 80mcg.
Before taking your prescribed Qvar Inhaler dosage, read all the instructions that was provided by your pharmacist to understand how to prime and use the inhaler. Administer the Beclomethasone dosage twice a day. If your doctor has prescribed more than one puff per dose, allow a minute between inhalations.
Rinse your mouth with water after inhaling the medication to prevent mouth infections. Never swallow the rinse water.
Make sure you use the Qvar Inhaler at the same time each day to create a routine for yourself and to ensure an even spread of medication in your system. For optimal results take this medication on a regular basis. Do not change or increase your dose. You should continue taking this medication even if you feel well.
The Qvar Inhaler or the Beclomethasone generic may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Consult with your doctor about any known allergies before using the Qvar Inhaler.

Keep track which inhalers are used more often in case there is a worsening of asthma symptoms. Speak with your doctor if you determine that you need your rescue inhaler more often. It's important to know that Qvar is not a rescue inhaler; the Beclomethasone dosage will not effectively relieve your symptoms during an asthma attack.

How to use Qvar Inhaler?
First, remove the plastic cap and make sure there are no foreign objects on the mouthpiece. Be sure to check the dose counter before use, and then prime the inhaler if needed by releasing 2 puffs into the air and away from your face. When ready to use, breathe out as fully as you can in a comfortable manner. Hold the inhaler to your mouth, and then close our lips around the mouthpiece, keeping your tongue below it. And while breathing in deeply and slowly, press down on the canister with your fingers. When you have finished breathing in, hold your breath for as long as you can at a comfortable level (5 to 10 seconds). Take your finger off the canister and remove the inhaler from your mouth, and gently breathe out. When complete, rinse your mouth out with water.
