Beclovent/Vanceril Inhaler(Beclomethasone) is a prescription medication used to prevent asthma attacks in adults and children at least 4 years old. An asthma attack is the sudden worsening of asthma symptoms caused by the tightening of muscles around the airways. During an asthma attack, the lining of the airways becomes swollen or inflamed, and thicker mucus, more than usual, is produced. The active ingredient in Beclovent/vanceril is Beclomethasone. Beclomethasone belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids. It works by reducing the swelling of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. This drug must be used regularly to prevent breathing problems. Beclovent/Vanceril inhaler will not treat an asthma attack that has already begun.
We currently offer the generic Beclomethasone from the United Kingdom also called Beclomethasone Inhaler CFC Fee in the strength of 50 mcg/200 dose. The brand Beclovent/Vanceril Inhaler is not available.
