Taking Beclometasone Inhaler

  • The Beclometasone Inhaler is usually taken 3-4 times daily at regular intervals, but you should follow the directions given to you by your doctor or healthcare professional.
  • If your doctor has prescribed a bronchodilator (a drug to be inhaled for rapid relief of difficult breathing), use it several minutes before your beclomethasone inhaler so that beclomethasone reaches deep into your lungs.
  • Before you use beclomethasone the first time, read the written instructions that come with it. Ask your doctor, pharmacist, or respiratory therapist to show you how to use it. Practice using the inhaler while he or she watches.

Follow these steps to use your inhaler:

  • Shake the inhaler well. (Note: If you are using QVAR, you do not need to shake the inhaler.)
  • Remove the protective cap.
  • Exhale (breathe out) as completely as possible through your nose while keeping your mouth shut.
  • Open Mouth Technique: Open your mouth wide, and place the open end of the mouthpiece about 1-2 inches from your mouth.
  • Closed Mouth Technique: Place the open end of the mouthpiece well into your mouth, past your front teeth. Close your lips tightly around the mouthpiece.
  • Take a slow, deep breath through the mouthpiece and, at the same time, press down on the container to spray the medication into your mouth. Be sure that the mist goes into your throat and is not blocked by your teeth or tongue. Adults giving the treatment to young children may hold the child's nose closed to be sure that the medication goes into the child's throat.
  • Hold your breath for 5-10 seconds, remove the inhaler, and exhale slowly through your nose or mouth. If you take two puffs, wait 2 minutes and shake the inhaler well before taking the second puff.
  • Replace the protective cap on the inhaler.
  • After each treatment, rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash.
