What is a Clenil Modulite Inhaler?

Clenil Modulite is a preventer inhaler which is taken daily to reduce the symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The active ingredient is Beclometasone.

Asthma is a chronic condition which causes inflammation within the airways. Asthmatic symptoms can be exacerbated by a number of triggers including pollen, dust, animal dander, weather, exercise, stress and laughter, though these are not the cause of the condition.

For those with severe asthma, whose symptoms persist most of the time, a preventer inhaler can be prescribed to provide long-term effective relief from their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

If you are going on holiday or will be staying in the hospital, make sure you take your inhalers with you and take them as prescribed.

How does Clenil Modulite work?

Beclometasone is a corticosteroid (steroid) which reduces the inflammation of the bronchi (airways).

When an allergen, such as dust or pollen, is inhaled by someone with asthma, their body initiates an immune response. Cells within the lungs release chemicals which causes inflammation. This inflammation makes it difficult to breathe and increases the chances of airways becoming blocked by phlegm.

The active ingredient of Clenil Modulite blocks the cells from releasing these chemicals and thus prevents the airways from becoming inflamed.

It's important to understand that while Beclometasone can prevent inflammation of the airways, it is not effective at treating inflammation during an asthma attack.

How to take Clenil Modulite?

Always take your inhaler as prescribed by the doctor. Do not alter your dosage or frequency of dosage without consent from the doctor. Stopping treatment, even if you feel better, can exacerbate your symptoms and cause an asthmatic flare-up. Always consult your GP before using any new medicines.

Clenil Modulite is a CFC-free inhaler which is administered orally.

If your inhaler is new, or if you haven't used your inhaler for 3 days or more, you should release one puff into the air to make sure it works before taking a dose.

To take a dose of Clenil Modulite:

  1. Start by standing or sitting in an upright position. This posture will help the medicine to reach your lungs more effectively.
  2. Remove the cap from the inhaler.
  3. Shake your inhaler before each dose. While shaking, listen out for a swishing noise coming from the canister as this will indicate whether there is medicine inside it. If you cannot hear a swishing, your canister may be empty.
  4. Holding the inhaler away from you, breathe out until you feel you need to breathe in.
  5. Place the mouthpiece of the inhaler between your teeth and close your mouth around it. Ensure your lips provide an airtight seal around the mouthpiece. Don't bite down on the mouthpiece of the inhaler
  6. Depress the canister of the inhaler while breathing in deeply and quickly. Timing is important - you must breathe in at precisely the same time as you press the canister. If you do not breathe in, or if you inhale too late, the dose you receive may be ineffective.
  7. Hold your breath for 10 seconds (or as long as is comfortable for you) before exhaling.
  8. After using your inhaler, rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth. This will remove any particles of the medicine left in your mouth.
  9. Replace the cap and store the medicine.

When using inhalers to treat asthma, the technique is important. Speak to your GP or asthma nurse if you are unsure whether your technique is right.

Clenil Modulite side effects and cautions

All medications carry the risk of side effects, though not everyone will experience them. Understanding the risks associated with your treatment is crucial to your care. If you experience any side effects or are unsure about how medicine may affect you, speak to your GP or pharmacist.

Frequently asked questions

Can I take Clenil Modulite with my reliever inhaler?

Yes. It is common to be prescribed a preventer inhaler with a reliever inhaler. Together, they are effective at managing asthma symptoms.

Can I take Clenil Modulite while pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, speak to your doctor or antenatal nurse about the risk that Clenil Modulite poses to your child.

Studies have shown that the risk Clenil Modulite poses to your child is negligible. Such risks should be determined on a case by case basis.

When should I take Clenil Modulite?

Always take medication exactly as prescribed by a healthcare provider.

Your preventer inhaler may be used once in the morning and once at night. Consult your doctor about the appropriate time to take your medicine.

What's the difference between Clenil Modulite and Qvar?

Whilst Clenil Modulite and Qvar both list Beclometasone as their active ingredient, the two medicines are not interchangeable and are prescribed based on brand.

Qvar is delivered in finer particles. This increases the absorption rate and potency of the medicine. These changes can increase the risk of experiencing side effects. Likewise, Clenil Modulite may not be as effective for you if you have been prescribed Qvar.

Always follow the doctor's instructions.

How long does it take for Clenil Modulite to work?

You may not notice an improvement to your breathing until up to a week after beginning treatment.

Your GP or asthma nurse may suggest arranging regular appointments to track your treatment progress. You may be asked to use a peak flow meter. This is a device which you blow into to determine how effectively you can breathe. You may have to track your readings in a diary, which will then be reviewed by a healthcare professional during an appointment.

What should I do if I forget to take a dose?

If you forget to take a dose, do not take more to make up for the missed dose.

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember and continue with your normal dosage thereafter.

If it is near the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose as you normally would.

What should I do if no medicine is coming out?

There are a number of reasons your inhaler may not work:

  • Your canister is empty (there is no medicine left)
  • Your inhaler is blocked
  • The canister is inserted incorrectly

To check whether there is medicine in the canister, remove it from the plastic housing and shake it gently. You should hear a fluid swishing around inside the metal canister. If you cannot hear it, or if the sound is very faint even when shaking vigorously, your canister is empty and will need to be replaced.

To clean your inhaler, remove the metal canister from your inhaler by pulling it straight upwards. Holding the plastic canister upright under a running tap, run some cold water through the inhaler. Once you have cleaned it, leave it to dry. Avoid drying your inhaler with a paper towel as this may introduce unwanted particles which may cause another blockage or result in inhalation of unwanted particles which may exacerbate your asthmatic symptoms.

When replacing the canister, make sure the nozzle of the canister is inserted into the small plastic hole at the base of the inhaler. After reinserting the canister, test it by releasing a puff into the air. If you need to take your inhaler while it is drying, shake the inhaler dry and take it as you would normally.

If you have followed the above steps and the medicine is still not coming out, consult your doctor.
