Qvar

0 reviews
star star star star star

Asthma is a longterm condition which results in symptoms such as wheezing and difficulty breathing. Someone with asthma will have easily reactive airways which are sensitive to certain triggers which, when in contact with one of them, will result in an allergic-type response. This can cause a number of symptoms including:

  • the muscles around the airways to tighten making breathing harder
  • the airway’s lining to swell and become inflamed
  • phlegm to build up which can cause a cough and result in further narrowed airways.
  • a full asthma attack.

Thankfully, with an asthma plan, you can come to know your triggers and learn how to avoid them and/or deal with the trigger symptoms right away. Part of this plan may be a prescription to use a preventer inhaler such as Qvar which releases your dose as a fine mist which you breathe down into your lungs and is the first-line treatment for anyone who uses their rescue inhaler 2 or more times a week.

How effective is Qvar?

Qvar is designed to lower hyperresponsiveness in the airways which occurs due to the sensitive nature of your lungs, as an asthmatic, to triggers such as dust or pollen. It does this by stopping or decreasing the chemicals which your body naturally releases as part of a normal immune response when the body is triggered in some way.

When used regularly and as prescribed, Qvar has been shown to effectively help a patient to manage their asthma and raise pulmonary functioning quickly. After it is back under control, the dose can be lowered to help with ongoing management of symptoms and give peace of mind to the sufferer.

Why choose Qvar?

Over the course of both a 6 week trial and a short course trial of the corticosteroid Qvar, this medication was proven to be effective in improving a patient’s control over their asthma and symptoms.

Using a corticosteroid such as Qvar daily via an inhaler is the most effective way to prevent an asthma attack or asthmatic symptoms including wheezing and coughing and this particular medication can also be used in children as young as 4. Patients who inhale corticosteroids rather than taking steroids orally also tend to develop far fewer side effects.

Although there is not yet a generic form of Qvar on the market it is still one of the most affordable brand name corticosteroids available.

Can I buy Qvar Online?

Qvar is a prescription-only medication so you will be asked to fill in a medical questionnaire before our doctors can approve you for treatment. Once approved you will be able to purchase your inhaler online via Click Pharmacy and have it sent quickly and discreetly directly to your address by next day delivery where possible.

Once you have your prescription you will be able to buy your medication again without redoing the health assessment.

The active ingredient in each puff of Qvar is beclomethasone dipropionate

The inactive ingredients are propellant HFA-134a and ethanol.

How does Qvar work?

The active ingredient in Qvar is a corticosteroid known as beclometasone dipropionate; a man-made version of the natural hormone produced by the adrenal glands which, amongst other functions, controls inflammatory responses such as allergic reactions.

When inhaled through the airways and into the lungs, beclometasone dipropionate is absorbed into the cells which stops them from producing and releasing the chemical causing this allergic response and resultant inflammation, asthma symptoms or attack. In doing so, the inflammation in the lungs which causes the airways to constrict making it difficult to breath is eased, and when used regularly beclometasone dipropionate can help prevent these attacks from occurring. You may be given a higher dose initially to bring your asthma under control after which the dose will be lowered as much as possible.

How should I take Qvar?

The canister should be primed twice prior to the first time you use it.

  • Remove the cover of the mouthpiece and make sure the metal pressurised canister which contains your medication is fully inserted into the actuator.
  • Breath out as fully as possible and place the mouthpiece into your mouth, place your tongue below it and create a seal with your lips.
  • Begin slowly breathing in and press down on the metal canister to release your dose of medication.
  • Once you have finished breathing in, hold your breath for 5 to 10 seconds.
  • Remove the inhaler from your mouth and begin to breathe normally.
  • Replace the cap right away, wash out your mouth and brush your teeth.

Using your inhaler correctly and as directed can not only decrease your asthma attacks but even prevent them.

How long can I take Qvar for?

Your GP or Click Pharmacy doctor will direct you as to how long you should use this inhaler for but it is designed to be taken regularly each day. If you stop using this medication then your breathing problems are likely to return so it is important you continue to use it for as long as is advised but ensure you get your asthma reviewed regularly in case changes to your prescription are needed.

What are the side effects of Qvar?

All medications can have possible side effects and each person will be affected differently depending on how well their body tolerates a certain drug.

The most common side effects of Qvar are a hoarse voice and irritation to the throat. You can also develop oral thrust though you can lower the risk of this by rinsing your mouth out and brushing

your teeth after each use. If it does develop you can be prescribed medication to quickly and easily treat it.

Less common side effects which affect between 1 in 100 and 1 in 1000 patients using the Qvar inhaler include:

  • headaches
  • coughing
  • nausea

When pregnant it is crucial you manage your asthma as well as possible as asthma itself can be more of a risk to the baby than the medication itself. If you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant or you are breastfeeding then discuss this with your doctor.

Other Warnings to consider

The use of orally inhaled corticosteroids such as Qvar has been shown to potentially affect the growth of children under 12. Monitoring your child’s growth with your doctor’s support regularly is crucial whilst using this medication during this time.

if you are concerned about using this medication or have questions about any of the side effects then book a free, online appointment with one of our doctors at Click Pharmacy.
