Asthma is a disease that causes chronic inflammation of both the large and small airways of the lungs. QVAR is a beclomethasone dipriopionate HFA inhalation aerosol that affects the lungs much in the way that you would deliver medication to a rash. Upon inhaling QVAR, the medication enters the cells in your airways, reducing inflammation over time. By treating this underlying cause of asthma, you reduce the risk of having an asthma attack and maintain healthier breathing.
Why QVAR is important: If you don't treat chronic inflammation of your lungs, permanent damage can occur. Increase in asthma attacks and greater difficulty breathing will occur over time.
