Beclomethasone/Levosalbutamol

Beclomethasone/Levosalbutamol

Uses

Aerocort Inhaler (Beclomethasone Dipropionate/Levosalbutamol) works by reducing inflammation and relaxing muscles in the airways, thereby improving breathing in patients with obstructive airway conditions. Combining 2 ingredients is considered by physicians to be ideal in the treatment of patients needing regular treatment with these ingredients, as opposed to separate administration.

Beclomethasone exhibits glucocorticoid activity, and by inhibiting various different cells and mediators of inflammation that contribute to the asthmatic response, it can help prevent inflammation in the airways. Levosalbutamol is a beta 2 adrenergic receptor agonist. By relaxing the muscles in the smooth muscles of the airways, it can improve the passage of airway in and out of the lungs.
