What is the Kelhale Inhaler?

The kelhale inhaler is an active halogenated synthetic corticosteroid, used to treat asthma and to alleviate symptoms associated with allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. The kelhale inhaler is about 5000 times more potent than hydrocortisone as an anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictor

How does it work?

Inflammation of the airways is known to be an important component in the pathogenesis of asthma. This inhaler for asthma has anti-inflammatory effects, inhibiting inflammatory cells, and the release of inflammation mediators. These anti-inflammatory actions appear to play an important role in the control of symptoms and in the improvement of lung function in asthma. The kelhale inhaler acts topically at the deposition site in the bronchial tree after inhalation.

What are the benefits of taking it?

The Kelhale inhaler, which contains Beclomethasone dipropionate belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids, known for being very effective as an asthma treatment. Corticosteroids are used for the treatment of asthma since they have, among others, an anti-inflammatory action. They reduce the swelling and irritation in the walls of the small ducts through which air circulates in the lungs and thus facilitate breathing. Corticosteroids also help prevent asthma attacks.

How do I use it?

This asthma inhaler is only for oral inhalation. Rinse your mouth with water after using it. Be sure not to swallow the water. This medication works best when used regularly. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. Do not stop taking it unless your doctor tells you to. Make sure you are using your inhaler correctly. If you have any questions, please contact your doctor or healthcare provider.
