Fostair Nexthaler is a prescription-only medication recommended to people suffering from severe asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. This medication comes in the form of a dry powder inhaler that helps manage breathlessness and other painful symptoms of these conditions in an effective way. Asthma and COPD can be highly debilitating conditions that can hamper your daily life, but you can stabilize your condition and carry on with confidence with the help of Fostair Nexthaler.
Fostair Nexthaler is an effective medication for maintenance therapy needed for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This inhaler comprises a combination of corticosteroid and bronchodilator ingredients. It reduces inflammation to open airways and help you breathe better.
It’s important to mention that Fostair Nexthaler is not a rescue inhaler but rather a medication that helps you manage and control asthma with regular use. Fostair Nexthaler is usually prescribed in cases where a regular preventer inhaler (a corticosteroid) has proved ineffective.
Fostair Nexthaler contains two active ingredients, namely beclomethasone dipropionate (a corticosteroid) and formoterol fumarate (a bronchodilator). The first ingredient, beclomethasone dipropionate is a synthetic form of corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are hormones produced in the human body, to help control inflammatory responses.
Therefore when you inhale Fostair Nexthaler the beclomethasone gets absorbed into the cells of the lungs and airways to reduce inflammation. This helps keep the airways open to prevent attacks of breathlessness.
The second ingredient, formoterol fumarate is a long-acting beta 2 agonist. It relaxes the muscles of the airways and makes it easier for you to breathe. Formoterol starts working in one to three minutes and lasts for 12 hours.
