Clenil Modulite Inhaler (50, 100, 200 & 250) information
What is a Clenil Inhaler and what is it used for?
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 are available to buy from The Independent Pharmacy, following a free consultation.
What is asthma?
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 and symptoms of asthma including:
- Tightness in the chest
- 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.
How do Clenil Inhalers work?
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 daily, Clenil Modulite will effectively control the inflammation of the airways, reducing the risk of any asthma symptoms.
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 such as Ventolin. You will likely be prescribed Clenil Modulite alongside a reliever inhaler, to both prevent and relieve your asthma symptoms.
Alternatives to Clenil
Asthma is not a condition that can be effectively treated with over-the-counter medications. If you are looking for another treatment or want to swap inhalers you will need to broach this subject with your GP at your regular asthma review. Please do not 'Try' a new inhaler without seeing your GP first. For more information please read our Asthma Management Guide.
We recommend you have a regular checkup with your regular GP to ensure your inhalers are still keeping your asthma controlled and are still the best course for you.
Reading the following warnings carefully will help to ensure you are selecting an appropriate product.
- Do not use Clenil inhalers if you are allergic to any of the ingredients
- You should not use Clenil inhalers to treat a sudden attack of breathlessness (an asthma attack). Your Clenil inhaler will not help in this situation, you should use your 'reliever' inhaler instead
Inform your doctor or pharmacist if:
- You have ever been treated for tuberculosis
- Your asthmatic symptoms worsen while using Clenil
- You have been told to avoid alcohol
- Your asthma seems to be getting worse
Please read all packaging and the Patient Information Leaflet before taking any new medicine and inform your doctor of medicines you are taking or intend to take.
How to use a Clenil Inhaler
