Qvar is a brand of brown preventer inhaler from Teva.
The active ingredient in Qvar is beclometasone dipropionate.
Brown preventer inhalers, such as Qvar, are used daily to prevent asthmatic symptoms such as:
You should not use Qvar as a rescue or reliever inhaler. Unlike a reliever, such as Ventolin, it takes a few days of using Qvar for the medicine to build up in the system and reach its efficacy.
Qvar is available as an aerosol inhaler with a canister that you press, an autohaler, or an Easi-Breathe inhaler.
The autohaler is activated when you inhale through the mouthpiece. These make it easier to administer your dose of Qvar without having to time your breathing with pressing the canister down.
The Easi-Breathe inhaler is an automatic inhaler. Similar to the autohaler, the Easi-Breathe inhaler is actuated by inhaling through the mouthpiece.
Qvar inhalers are available in strengths of 50mcg and 100mcg.
The active ingredient in Qvar is a corticosteroid called beclometasone dipropionate.
This ingredient works to reduce inflammation in the airways (bronchoconstriction) and prevent asthma attacks. These attacks can be brought on by triggers such as:
When the body is exposed to a trigger (antigen), the body's immune system responds by releasing chemicals to fight it. These chemicals cause inflammation in the airways, making it difficult to breathe.
Beclometasone stops these cells from releasing these inflammatory chemicals. This allows your airways to remain open and make it easier to breathe.
Due to the way this medicine works, it is ineffective at relieving asthmatic symptoms during the onset of an asthma attack. Preventer inhalers are often prescribed alongside a reliever inhaler, such a Ventolin, to control the symptoms of an asthma attack.
Generally, you may see an improvement in your symptoms within 1 to 2 weeks of starting treatment. However, it may take up to 3 or 4 weeks to feel the full benefits.
When used regularly, Qvar effectively prevents symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and coughing.
If you do not notice any improvement after the first week of using your Qvar inhaler, speak to your doctor.
Qvar is typically taken twice daily - once in the morning and once at night. This provides effective coverage during the day and during sleep, to prevent acute asthma symptoms.
Always follow the dosage your doctor prescribed when using Qvar inhalers.
Qvar is available in three types of inhalers:
When using your inhaler, it is important to sit or stand in an upright position. This helps the medicine reach your lungs more effectively.
Before taking your dose, breathe out gently until you feel ready to breathe in again.
Your doctor or asthma nurse may wish to review your technique, as using the inhaler incorrectly can impact the effectiveness of the medicine.
If you have not used your inhaler for 2 weeks or more, you should test your inhaler by removing the mouthpiece cover and spraying two puffs into the air away from your face.
To use an Autohaler, follow the steps below.
To use your Easi-breathe inhaler, take the following steps:
To use your metered dose inhaler, follow the steps below:
If you accidentally forget to take Qvar when you should, take it as soon as you remember.
If it is near the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue using your inhaler as normal.
Do not take more more Qvar to make up for a missed dose.
Do not take more than the recommended dose.
Using your inhaler more than recommended can increase your risk of developing side effects.
If you accidentally take more Qvar than you should, speak to your doctor right away.
Before you use Qvar, it is important to read the accompanying patient information leaflet. The patient information leaflet contains useful information about taking, storing and disposing of the medicine.
If you have any concerns about any of the information you read within the patient information leaflet, don't hesitate to ask your doctor or a pharmacist about it.
All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everybody experiences them. It is important to understand and be able to identify the side effects attributed to your medication.
Possible side effects of Qvar include:
This is not a complete list of side effects. A full list of side effects associated with Qvar can be found within the patient information leaflet.
Speak to your doctor or a pharmacist if you experience any side effects from taking Qvar.
If you feel wheezy or tightness in your chest immediately after taking Qvar, do not take any more Qvar. Use your reliever inhaler to relieve your symptoms and contact your doctor immediately.
If you experience any of the following, continue using Qvar but speak to your doctor as soon as possible:
Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine before taking it.
Always take your medicine as prescribed by your doctor. Do not change the dose without discussing with your doctor first.
Do not abruptly stop using your inhaler, even if you feel well.
If you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding, speak to your doctor before taking Qvar.
Always keep medicines, such as Qvar, out of the sight and reach of children.
Do not store the medicine in an environment which exceeds 25° Celsius. Avoid storing Qvar in direct sunlight.
Protect the medicine from frost.
Do not puncture or burn the canister, even if it seems to be empty.
Corticosteroids, such as the active ingredient in Qvar, have been reported to increase the risk of oral thrush.
Oral thrush is a fungal infection in the mouth which causes white patches on the tongue, roof of the mouth, and inside the cheeks.
To prevent oral thrush, rinse out your mouth with mouthwash or brush your teeth after taking Qvar. Do not swallow the rinse.
Speak to your doctor if you develop oral thrush, so they can prescribe an appropriate treatment.
Yes. It is common to be prescribed both a preventer inhaler and reliever inhaler.
While Qvar and Clenil both contain the same active ingredient, beclometasone dipropionate, they are not interchangeable due to differences in dosages.
According to the BNF, Qvar is approximately 2x stronger than Clenil Modulite.
Only take medicines prescribed to you and don't mix brands of medicines, even if they appear to be the same.
Before changing the medicine prescribed to you, speak to your doctor.
Yes - alcohol does not interact with Qvar.
However, alcohol consumption should be reduced or avoided if it triggers your asthma.
Qvar should not affect your driving ability.
However, if you experience any side effects which may impair your driving, such as feeling dizzy or faint, you should avoid driving, cycling or operating machinery.
Speak to your doctor for advice.
You can buy Qvar inhalers online from our online private prescription service.
If the doctor approves your order before 3pm, our UK pharmacy will dispense your order and dispatch it via a tracked next day delivery service.
All our medicines are delivered in discreet packaging, providing no indication of its contents.
