Beclometasone dipropionate (INN modified) or beclomethasone dipropionate (USAN, former BAN) is a potent glucocorticoid steroid. It is a prodrug of the free form, beclometasone (INN). In the form of an inhaler, a wide number of brands of which are available, it is used for the prophylaxis of asthma. As a nasal spray or nasal aerosol, it is used for the treatment of rhinitis and sinusitis. In some instances, it is used by oral pathologists in the treatment of unusually severe aphthous ulcers.
It is also licensed to treat ulcerative colitis in conjunction with doses of 5-aminosalicylates in the United Kingdom in the form of a gastric acid-resistant, periodic-release tablet marketed under the brand name Clipper. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, a list of the most important medication needed in a basic health system.
Beclomethasone is used to prevent and control symptoms caused by asthma. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways.
This medication must be used regularly to prevent breathing problems. It does not work immediately and should not be used to relieve an asthma attack. If an attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.
