Clenil (beclometasone) 100, 200 and 250mcg
|How quickly it works|
Clenil (beclometasone) does not help control asthma immediately. Used on a daily basis, Clenil can help prevent asthma attacks and control symptoms, such as a wheeze or a night-time cough. You should also have a reliever inhaler like Ventolin (salbutamol) to hand in case of sudden breathing problems.
|How to take it|
Take as directed by your GP or asthma nurse. This is usually one to two puffs once or twice a day.
Clenil can cause thrush in the mouth or a hoarse voice. Using mouthwash or brushing your teeth after using Clenil can help prevent this. A full list of side effects will accompany your medicine.
|Using your inhaler|
To get the maximum benefit from your inhaler, you need to make sure you are using it correctly. Studies show that the majority of people do not use their inhaler properly. You can ask your GP, asthma nurse or your local LloydsPharmacy to check your inhaler technique.
|Who shouldn't use this service|
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have ever needed intensive care treatment for your asthma, or have been admitted to hospital because of your symptoms in the last year, our doctors will be unable to prescribe you Clenil. If you have asthma and are pregnant or breastfeeding you should see your GP.
How quickly does Clenil take effect?
As a preventer, Clenil is a long-term solution to help control your asthma, and takes effect within 3 to 7 days of being used. It should be taken as a preventative measure, usually twice a day, to reduce inflammation in the lungs. It should not be used for immediate relief.
Does Clenil treat the underlying causes of asthma?
Clenil (beclometasone) helps to prevent asthma attacks by reducing inflammation in your lungs. It needs to be taken daily to get the full effect. However, it should be noted that it is not a permanent cure for asthma, and taking it once in a while will not make it an effective treatment.
