Without a Prescription

Beclomethasone HFA Inhalers are prescribed for a wide range of patients with bronchial asthma.
These include those whose asthma is poorly controlled by bronchodilators alone; those who are inadequately controlled by sodium cromoglycate in addition to bronchodilators; those with severe asthma who are dependent on systemic corticosteroids, or adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) or its synthetic equivalent.

Beclomethasone-50 and Beclomethasone-100 inhalers are particularly important for managing asthma in children because good control can be achieved without retardation of growth.

Beclomethasone-200 Inhaler is unsuitable for administration to children.
Beclomethasone-250 Inhaler is prescribed in the prophylactic management of severe asthma i.e. patients with severe persistent asthma and those who are dependent on systemic corticosteroids for adequate control of symptoms.
Beclomethasone HFA Inhaler may be used with a Cipla Spacer/Zerostat Spacer device in patients who find it difficult to synchronise aerosol actuation with inspiration of breath.
The Cipla BabyMask device may be used with Beclomethasone-50 Inhaler to facilitate administration to children under 5 years of age.

Beclomethasone Rotacaps
Beclomethasone Rotacaps are for inhalation use only through the Cipla Rotahaler.
For optimum results Beclomethasone Rotacaps should be used regularly.

Adults
The contents of two 200 mg (or one 400 mg) Rotacap(s) twice daily is the usual maintenance dose.
Alternatively, one 200 mg Rotacap may be administered three or four times daily.

Children
One 100 mg Rotacap two, three or four times daily, according to the response.
Alternatively, 200 mg twice daily may be administered.

The effective action of corticosteroids is not more than 6-8 hours when applied locally.
There is usually a need for three applications per day in acute cases.
In resolving chronic dermatoses, a single application is adequate.
Because the Beclomethasone range contains a potent corticosteroid, the thinnest application possible should be used.
When improvement is seen the intervals between applications may be extended and eventually stopped.

Beclomethasone Nasal Spray and Beclomethasone Aquanase are for administration by the intranasal route only.
For full therapeutic benefit, regular usage is essential.

Adults and children (6-12 years)
The usual dosage is one inhalation (50 mg) in each nostril two or four times daily (total dose 200-400 mg/day).
Patients can often be maintained on a maximum dose of one inhalation in each nostril thrice daily (300 mg/day).
