What is Soprobec?

Soprobec contains the active ingredient, beclomethasone dipropionate, which belongs to the group of medicines called corticosteroids. 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. The Soprobec is used to prevent asthma symptoms in people who need regular treatment. Corticosteroids also help prevent asthma attacks. It is not indicated for the relief of acute bronchospasm.

How does it work?

Inflammation of the airways is known to be an important component in the pathogenesis of asthma. The corticosteroids have anti-inflammatory effects (in effect, being an inhaler for better breathing), 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. Beclomethasone Inhaled dipropionate acts topically at the deposition site in the bronchial tree after inhalation.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Soprobec is a medicine that belongs to the group of corticosteroids. Sometimes, due to different stimuli, some cells in our body release substances that cause inflammation. Corticosteroids work by reducing the release of these substances to, for example, allergic or immune responses, in turn, reduce inflammation. Narrowing of the airways occurs in asthma due to inflammation and mucus secretion, making it difficult for air to enter the lungs.

Using the Soprobec inhaler is useful in the prevention and treatment of asthma attacks because of its anti-inflammatory action on the lungs and its decrease in mucus secretion. Because the medication is released directly to the place where it is needed, low doses are required and few adverse effects occur.

How do I use it and its dosage?

This medicine is for oral inhalation. Rinse your mouth with water after using it. Be sure not to swallow the water. Follow the directions on the medicine label. This medication works best when used regularly. Do not use your medicine more frequently 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.
