What Qvar is and what it is used for

Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler contains beclometasone dipropionate, which belongs to a group of medicines known as corticosteroids. Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler is used to prevent the symptoms of mild, moderate, or severe asthma in patients who require regular treatment. How your medicine works
• Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler works deep in your lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the inflammation, swelling, and irritation in the airways. This type of medicine is known as a ‘preventer’. It needs to be taken regularly every day, even if you have no symptoms.
• This inhaler will not give immediate relief of wheezing or breathlessness during a sudden asthma attack. You will need to use a ‘reliever’ inhaler, which contains a different medicine. You should still continue to use this inhaler.
• you are suffering from a sudden attack of breathlessness. It will not help. Use a quick-acting ‘reliever’ inhaler for this purpose and carry it with you at all times

How to take Qvar

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. There are two strengths of the Qvar Easi-Breathe device available and your doctor will have chosen the strength which best suits your condition. This inhaler has a softer feel and a different taste than other inhalers you may have used before. This inhaler is an extra fine aerosol which results in more of each dose being delivered to your lungs. Your doctor may, therefore, prescribe a lower dose of this inhaler than your previously used inhaler. Even when your doctor has prescribed a lower dose you may find that the number of puffs you are asked to take from this inhaler is the same as from your previously inhaler; this is because this inhaler may be a lower strength product (which means that each puff of this inhaler contains less beclometasone dipropionate than your old inhaler). Do not take more puffs than your doctor has told you to. In some circumstances, your doctor may prescribe more than the usual number of puffs. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The usual number of puffs to take is as follows: Qvar Easi-Breathe 50 micrograms Inhaler Adults (including the elderly) and children over 12 years
• Mild Asthma The starting dose is one puff twice a day. This may be increased up to two puffs twice a day.
• Moderate Asthma The starting dose is two puffs twice a day. This may be increased up to four puffs twice a day.
• Severe Asthma The starting dose is four puffs twice a day. This may be increased up to eight puffs twice a day. The maximum dose is a total of sixteen puffs a day. Qvar Easi-Breathe 100 micrograms Inhaler Adults (including the elderly) and children over 12 years
• Mild Asthma The Qvar 100 Easi-Breathe device is not suitable for the starting dose. It is suitable for an increased dose of one puff twice a day.
• Moderate Asthma The starting dose is one puff twice a day. This may be increased to two puffs twice a day.
• Severe Asthma The starting dose is two puffs twice a day. This may be increased up to four puffs twice a day. The maximum dose is a total of eight puffs a day. Use in children under 12 years Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler is not recommended for use in children under 12 years. What to do if you think your treatment is not working If you think your usual treatment is not working, for example your symptoms are not getting better, or are getting worse, or you need to use more puffs from your reliever inhaler, or if your reliever inhaler does not seem to be working as well as usual, or your peak flow falls, please tell your doctor. Your asthma may be getting worse. If you use more Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler than you should It is important that you take your dose as stated on the pharmacist’s label, or as advised by your doctor. You should not increase or decrease your dose without seeking medical advice. If you accidentally take more puffs than recommended, please tell your doctor immediately. If you forget to use Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler If you forget to use this inhaler at your usual time, take your recommended number of puffs as soon as you remember unless it is nearly time to use your inhaler again. DO NOT take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. Then continue to use your inhaler regularly at the correct time, as prescribed by your doctor. If you stop using Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler This inhaler must be used regularly, even when you feel well. You must not stop using your inhaler unless your doctor tells you to. Ask your doctor for a prescription for a replacement inhaler before this one is empty. If your doctor decides to stop treatment, return the inhaler to your doctor or pharmacist for safe disposal. Using your Qvar Easi-Breathe Inhaler Qvar Easi-Breathe CFC-Free Inhaler is designed to make it easier for you to use. It is a breath-operated inhaler. This means it only releases a dose when you breathe in. Before Use Before using your inhaler, please read this leaflet carefully and follow the instructions.

You should also rinse your mouth with water after using your inhaler. Do not wash or put any part of your inhaler in water. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Possible side effects

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

If you become unwell, particularly with any of the following you should see your doctor:
