Beclazone (Beclomethasone Dipropionate)
What is Beclazone (Beclomethasone Dipropionate) used for?
Beclazone Inhaler (Beclomethasone Dipropionate) is an inhalable corticosteroid prescribed to treat patients with asthma. It is inhaled into the lungs and operates by relaxing the airways to allow easier respiration and to prevent potential acute attacks. Please note that this is meant as a long-term treatment and will not be effective for relieving attacks as they occur. Always keep an emergency inhaler on hand for this reason. You may be prescribed to combine this medication along with others or to treat other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Beclazone (Beclomethasone Dipropionate)?
Strictly follow your doctor`s instructions to make sure you are using Beclazone (Beclomethasone Dipropionate) correctly. It is normally prescribed to be administered twice each day at a dosage of one spray. Your individual dosage may be different as it is based on your current health condition, symptom severity, and response to other treatments. Do not self-medicate or alter these directions to avoid causing unexpected health problems.
Gently shake the inhaler to mix the contents prior to application. Remove the mouthpiece, exhale deeply, put your mouth on the mouthpiece, and inhale deeply while dispensing one spray. If another dosage is required, wait several minutes before dispensing it to avoid unnecessary throat or nose irritation. You are also recommended to administer the doses at the same times each day to get the most efficient results by keeping a consistent level of medicine in the body at all times.
Attend any recommended appointments with your prescribing doctor to make sure the medicine is having the desired effects. After observing your response to the regimen, it may be necessary to adjust your dosage or application frequency until the best results occur. If you have any questions about your treatment, ask you doctor or pharmacist to ensure the correct usage.
