Asthma Home > Qvar Inhl

Qvar® (beclomethasone inhaler) is a prescription medicine approved for preventing asthma attacks. It comes in a metered-dose inhaler and is used twice a day, every day. Qvar inhl is an abbreviation of Qvar inhaler.
 
The medication is a type of inhaled steroid that goes directly into the lungs and helps to decrease the inflammation of airways that makes asthma attacks more likely. Since it does not work quickly, it should not be used for treating an asthma attack; rather, it is taken regularly to help prevent attacks.
 
While most people respond well to the Qvar inhaler, side effects are possible. Some of the most common side effects that have been reported with this asthma medication include back pain, nausea, sore throat, and voice changes.
