Clenil Modulite Inhalers are an effective preventative treatment for asthma. Typically, they need to be used every day to help control and prevent asthma-related symptoms and attacks. The active ingredient, Beclometasone, works by reducing inflammation within the airways. This allows for more air to pass to and from the lungs, making breathing easier.
Four different strengths of the inhaler are available. They come in dosages of 50, 100, 200 or 250 micrograms. Your GP will prescribe the strength most appropriate for you – this will depend on a variety of factors, including; your age, medical history, and the severity of your asthma.
If you have been diagnosed with asthma and previously prescribed Clenil by your doctor, repeat supplies of this medicine is available to buy from The Independent Pharmacy, following a free consultation.
Asthma is a condition that causes inflammation of the bronchi. These are the tubes that connect the lungs to the windpipe. This inflammation causes the airways to contract, which restricts the amount of air coming to and from the lungs. This swelling can also increase the amount of phlegm being produced, which will cause further obstruction of the airway passages. This leads to symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, a tightness in the chest, and a shortness of breath. Asthma is a very common condition, affecting approximately five million people in The UK. Asthma symptoms can be triggered by a variety of factors, including; allergens, exercise, environmental pollutants, cold air, stress, and infections.
Preventer inhalers, such as Clenil Modulite are designed to reduce inflammation of the bronchi. Once the active ingredient (beclomethasone dipropionate) enters the lungs, it inhibits cells in the area from producing the chemicals responsible for causing inflammation. When used on a daily basis, Clenil Modulite will effectively control the inflammation of the airways, reducing the risk of any asthma symptoms. You should continue to use Clenil inhalers even if your symptoms improve, to prevent your breathing problems from returning.
It is important to reemphasize that preventer inhalers do not treat asthma symptoms immediately. This product will not provide relief from asthma symptoms or an asthma attack. For this reason, you should always ensure that you carry a reliever inhaler with you. You will likely be prescribed Clenil Modulite alongside a reliever inhaler, in order to both prevent and relieve your asthma symptoms.
