Description

Indications

Beclomethasone is employed for the prevention and management of symptoms associated with asthma, such as wheezing and breathlessness. Belonging to the corticosteroid class of medications, it operates by diminishing the inflammation within the lung’s airways, thereby facilitating improved breathing. Beclomethasone doesn’t provide immediate relief and should not be employed to alleviate the symptoms of an ongoing asthma attack.

Uses and Dosage

Inhale this medication orally as per your doctor’s instructions, typically twice daily. The prescribed dosage depends on your medical condition and how you respond to the treatment.

It’s unnecessary to use a spacer device with this medication. Priming or shaking the inhaler before use is not required. If your prescribed dose consists of 2 puffs, ensure there’s at least a one-minute gap between them. If you are utilizing multiple inhalers simultaneously, maintain a minimum of 1-minute intervals between each medication use, and administer this corticosteroid last.

To ward off potential dry mouth, hoarseness, and oral yeast infections, gargle and rinse your mouth with water after each use, then expel the rinse water. Avoid swallowing the rinse water.

Keep a record of the number of inhalations utilized. Dispose of the canister after you’ve reached the specified number of inhalations indicated on the package, even if you believe there’s remaining medication. Follow the provided instructions for cleaning the inhaler, but refrain from washing or immersing any component of the inhaler in water.

For optimal results, adhere to a consistent schedule of using this medication. To enhance memory, employ it at the same designated times each day. This medication’s efficacy is maximized when it’s administered at evenly spaced intervals. Refrain from augmenting the dosage or using this medication more frequently or for a longer duration than prescribed, as it won’t expedite your improvement and may elevate the risk of side effects.

Avoid discontinuing this medication without consulting your doctor. Sudden cessation can exacerbate certain conditions. Your doctor may need to gradually reduce your dosage to minimize withdrawal effects if you are regularly taking a different corticosteroid by mouth, such as prednisone. Alert your doctor or pharmacist immediately if you experience withdrawal symptoms. Refer to the Precautions section for further guidance.

You might start sensing the effects of this medication within 24 hours, but obtaining the full benefits could take several weeks or more. If your condition does not improve or worsens, inform your doctor accordingly.

  • cramps

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • body aches or pain
  • congestion
  • cough
  • difficulty with breathing

Caution

Before initiating the use of beclomethasone, communicate to your doctor or pharmacist any existing allergies you may have, whether to beclomethasone or other allergens. This product might encompass inert components that could potentially trigger allergic reactions or related complications.

Before commencing this medication, furnish your doctor or pharmacist with your medical history, particularly any history of eye issues like cataracts or glaucoma, bone loss conditions such as osteoporosis, and past or ongoing infections such as tuberculosis or herpes.

If you’ve transitioned from orally administered corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone tablets) to this inhaler within the last 12 months, or if you’ve been employing this product at higher-than-normal doses for an extended period, your body’s response to physical stress might be compromised. Inform your healthcare provider if you anticipate surgery, emergency treatment, or if you experience a significant illness or injury. Inform your doctor or dentist about your usage of this medication or any orally taken corticosteroid within the past year. Alert your doctor immediately if you encounter unusual or extreme fatigue or experience weight loss. Carry a warning card or a medical ID bracelet indicating your use of corticosteroid medications.

This medication could potentially obscure signs of infection, making you more susceptible to infections or exacerbating existing ones. Distance yourself from individuals with easily transmissible infections like chickenpox, COVID-19, measles, or the flu. Consult your doctor if you’ve been exposed to an infection or need further details.

In the event of prolonged usage, this medication could temporarily slow down a child’s growth. Poorly controlled asthma can also impede growth. Regular medical check-ups are recommended to monitor your child’s height.

During pregnancy, the use of this medication should only be used if necessary. The potential risks and benefits should be discussed with your doctor.

The extent to which this medication passes into breast milk remains uncertain. Consult your doctor prior to making a decision about breastfeeding while using beclomethasone.
