QVAR is a long-term, small-particle inhaled corticosteroid, or ICS, that is made for every day asthma control. Why ICS? QVAR inhalation sends medication through even the small airways in your lungs which means that more medicine gets used. Because of this, QVAR is the only small-particle ICS medication that children as young as 5 years old can be using.
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.
