Qvar Aerosol Inhaler & Autohaler for Asthma & Breathing Problems

Asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are breathing conditions that primarily affect the lungs and can cause a range of breathing difficulties. Asthma often occurs after exposure to a trigger, however, it can happen randomly. Triggers may include common allergies to pollen or animal dander, infections, environmental changes or from exercise.

Qvar Autohaler is a steroid-preventer inhaler used to relieve and treat symptoms of asthma. This inhaler can prevent symptoms of mild, moderate or severe asthma and should be taken regularly.

What is Qvar Aerosol Inhaler & Autohaler and how does it work?

The Qvar Inhaler & Autohaler contains a corticosteroid called beclometasone dipripionate. Beclometasone dipripionate works to calm down your immune system to reduce the irritations and inflammation deep in the lungs and prevent symptoms of asthma attacks.

This is not a reliever/rescue inhaler.
