Qvar Inhaler is a prescription medication used as a long-term maintenance treatment for asthma. It contains the active ingredient beclomethasone. Beclomethasone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways.

Beclomethasone is a breath-actuated inhaler, which means that it is activated by your breathing. It is indicated for use in patients 4 years of age and older. It is a corticosteroid that helps prevent and control symptoms of asthma, such as wheezing and shortness of breath.

Qvar Inhaler is available in 100 mcg/actuation (equivalent to 80 mcg) and 50mcg/ actuation (equivalent to 40 mcg).

Uses and Dosage

Qvar Inhaler is a breath-actuated inhaled medicine that should be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Inhale this medication by mouth, usually 2 times a day or as directed by your doctor. The dosage is based on your age, medical condition, and response to treatment.

If your prescribed dose is 2 puffs, wait at least one minute between them. If you are using other inhalers at the same time, wait at least 1 minute between the use of each medication, and use this drug (the corticosteroid) last. Follow the instructions for priming the inhaler if you are using a canister for the first time or if you have not used it for 10 days or more. Do not shake the inhaler. Avoid getting the medication in your eyes when priming or using the inhaler.

The recommended starting dosage of QVAR inhaler varies depending on the patient's previous asthma therapy, age, and whether they are currently on an inhaled corticosteroid. Here are some of the recommended starting dosages:

  • For patients 12 years of age and older who are not on an inhaled corticosteroid the recommended starting dosage is 40 to 80 mcg twice daily.
  • For adults and children 12 years of age and older, the recommended starting dosage is one puff two times a day. Each puff contains 40 or 80 micrograms (mcg) of QVAR.
