  11. 11. Generic Qvar Inhaler © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland Warnings And Precautions ➔Generic Qvar Inhaler is not indicated for immediate relief of asthma attacks or status asthmaticus. Patients should be made aware of the prophylactic nature of treatment with inhaled beclomethasone and that it should be taken regularly, even when they are asymptomatic. ➔Inhaled corticosteroids are designed to direct glucocorticoid activity to the lungs in order to reduce the overall systemic glucocorticoid exposure and side effects. In sufficient doses, however, all inhaled corticosteroids can have adverse effects, notably depression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, reduction of bone density and retardation of growth in children.
  12. 12. Generic Qvar Inhaler © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland Warnings And Precautions ➔Patients who have received systemic corticosteroids for long periods of time or at high doses, or both, need special care and subsequent management when being transferred to inhaled corticosteroid therapy. ➔In patients who have been transferred from oral corticosteroids to inhalation therapy, systemic therapy may need to be reinstated during periods of stress or where airways obstruction or mucus prevents absorption by inhalation. ➔Discontinuation of systemic corticosteroids may cause exacerbation of allergic diseases such as atopic eczema and rhinitis. These should be treated as required with appropriate therapy
  13. 13. Generic Qvar Inhaler © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland Warnings And Precautions ➔There is no experience of Generic Qvar in pregnancy in humans; therefore the product should only be used if the benefits outweigh any potential risk to the patient. ➔There is no experience of Generic Qvar product in lactation in humans; therefore the product should only be used if the benefits outweigh any potential risk to the patient.
  14. 14. Generic Qvar Inhaler © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland Overdose Symptoms And Treatment Acute overdose is unlikely to cause problems. The only harmful effect that follows inhalation of large amounts of beclomethasone over a short time period is suppression of HPA function. Specific emergency action need not be taken. Treatment with Generic Qvar Inhaler (Beclate Inhaler) should be continued at the recommended dose to control the asthma and HPA function can be expected to recover in a day or two.
  15. 15. Generic Qvar Inhaler © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland Overdose Symptoms And Treatment If very large and excessive doses of Beclomethasone were taken over a prolonged period a degree of atrophy of the adrenal cortex could occur in addition to HPA suppression. In this event the patient should be treated as corticosteroid dependent and transferred to a suitable maintenance dose of a systemic corticosteroid such as prednisone. Once the condition is stabilised, the patient should be transferred to Beclate Inhaler at the recommended doses.
