What is Qvar?

Qvar, also known as beclomethasone, is a medication used to prevent and control symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and shortness of breath. Qvar is classified as a corticosteroid and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent on the airways, decreasing inflammation, irritation and swelling. This results in open airways and improved ability to breathe.

Qvar must be used regularly in order to prevent breathing problems associated with asthma. The medication does not work right away and is not meant for treatment of acute asthmatic attacks. For acute asthmatic attacks, one must use fast-acting bronchodilators available as inhalers. Besides asthma, Qvar is also used to treat chronic obstructive lung disease, bronchitis, emphysema and other lung disorders (e.g. fibrosis).

How does Qvar work?

Qvar is a corticosteroid and it essentially acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. When taken regularly, it helps reduce irritation and swelling of the airways so that wheezing and shortness of breath do not occur.

How to use Qvar inhalers

You will be provided with instructions on how to use Qvar from the pharmacist. In any case, you should read the patient information leaflet before using this medication. If you have any questions regarding use of Qvar, speak to your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.

  • Qvar is to be inhaled by the mouth twice a day. The dose of the medication is generally based on the specific medical disorder and on the patient's response to treatment. Most patients are prescribed two puffs at a time.
  • There should be a waiting period of 60 seconds between each puff. If you have been prescribed other inhalers at the same time, you must wait at least 60 seconds between the use of each puffer. In all cases, Qvar should be used last.
  • Qvar does not work right away. It's benefits appear after 10-14 days.
  • Every time you use Qvar, you must make a note of the number of inhalations. Once you have reached the number of inhalations listed on the package, you should discard the canister, even if you feel there is medication left in the canister. You must clean the inhaler as printed. Do not rinse the inhaler in water.

To get the maximum benefit from Qvar, use it as prescribed. Always use the medication at the same time every day. Do not change or alter the dose or use it longer than prescribed, as this will not improve your symptoms faster. On the other hand, it may increase the risk of side effects.

Never stop taking Qvar without first speaking to your healthcare provider. If you feel that your symptoms are not well controlled, speak to your healthcare provider as soon as possible.

Always follow the instructions for priming the inhaler if you have never used Qvar before or have not used the medication for at least 14 days. There is no need to shake the canister before use. Try and avoid getting the spray in your eye during priming or when inhaling.

Qvar Side Effects

Some common side effects of Qvar include a dry or sore throat, headache, hoarseness or change in voice and an altered taste. These side effects do not occur in everyone. If these side effects persist then you must speak to your healthcare provider.

To prevent dry mouth, yeast infections and hoarseness, rinse and gargle your mouth with warm water after each use. Do not swallow the water.

Other rare but serious side effects include hair loss, mood changes (depression, agitation), easy bruising, increased thirst, weight gain, puffy face, muscle weakness, wounds that heal slowly and blurry vision.

Qvar Precautions

Listed below are the precautions you should follow when using Qvar preventer inhalers to prevent the symptoms of asthma:

  • Qvar should not be shared with any other members of the family.
  • During each visit to your healthcare provider, laboratory tests such as blood count and density of your bone may be performed to monitor the effectiveness of the medication and presence of any side effects.
  • If you are an asthmatic, you should make effort to avoid potential allergens like pet dander, pollen, second-hand smoke and other irritants.
  • Doctors recommend that people who have asthma or other lung diseases should get the annual flu shot.
  • Rarely Qvar may itself cause sudden difficulty in breathing or wheezing after use. If this happens, you must stop using the inhaler and seek immediate medical attention.
  • As Qvar is a corticosteroid, it can suppress the immune system and this results in an inability to fight off infections. In case you develop a sore throat, fever, chills, ear pain or generalized fatigue, tell your healthcare provider about the symptoms.
  • Regular use of Qvar can result in the development of a yeast infection in the mouth (thrush). This may present with an abnormal taste and/or white patches on your tongue or mouth.

Like all medications, Qvar can cause an allergic reaction but it is rare. However, if you develop swollen lips, difficulty in breathing, rash, itching or dizziness, stop the medication and seek immediate medical assistance.

Can Qvar Be Used During Pregnancy?

Qvar should only be used in pregnancy if absolutely necessary. Never start Qvar if you are pregnant without first speaking to your healthcare provider. It is not yet known if Qvar can pass into breast milk and what effect it has on the newborn. In any case, avoid breastfeeding if you are on Qvar.

What Should I Do In Case Of An Overdose?

If you suspect an overdose from Qvar, call emergency services or get to the nearest emergency room. Do not drive yourself but get someone to drive you.

Additional Information

Listed below is some additional information you should consider before using the Qvar preventer inhaler:

  • Before using Qvar, always tell the pharmacist or your healthcare provider if you are allergic to it or if you have any type of allergy.
  • If you have any liver, heart or eye problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, bleeding problems, mood swings or an active infection you should tell the doctor.
  • If you have been using Qvar for more than six months, your body may not respond to stress readily. Therefore before you undergo any surgery or a procedure, you need to tell your doctor so that they can cover you with an extra dose of steroid during the procedure.
  • All patients who take Qvar should wear a medical ID bracelet that says you are on a corticosteroid.
  • As Qvar can mask signs of an infection, it is vital that you wash your hands to prevent spread or transmission of infections.
  • Avoid contact with individuals who have an acute infection like the flu or chickenpox.
  • Qvar may interfere with actions of a vaccine. Speak to your doctor before getting any vaccination. In addition, try and avoid contact with individuals who have recently been vaccinated with a live vaccine (e.g. the flu virus).
  • Qvar, when used in children, may slow down the growth if used for a long time. Thus, it is important to follow-up with your paediatrician so that growth factors such as body weight and height are monitored regularly.
