Becodisks Refill 100mcg helps to prevent attacks of breathlessness that is associated with asthma. Becodisks contains beclometasone dipropionate and belongs to a group of medicines called steroids that work in the air passages of the lungs and help to reduce inflammation in order to keep the airways open and make it easier to breathe. This medicine is intended to be used as part of continuous management of your condition in order to prevent asthma attacks and it will not provide fast relief once an attack has already started. It will only prevent attacks if taken around the same time daily.
