What is Clenil Modulite?
Clenil Modulite (beclomethasone dipropionate) is an inhaled asthma treatment that acts to alleviate inflammation in the airways to aid easier breathing. It's mostly used to prevent asthma symptoms and asthma attacks and is therefore taken on a daily basis to help keep your condition under control. Asthma symptoms should normally get better within a week of starting treatment with Clenil Modulite.
Be aware that Clenil Modulite does not work as a reliever inhaler, if you require such, you would need to obtain a inhaler such as Ventolin or Salamol CFC Free in possession in case of sudden breathing problems and to generally keep any asthma attacks at bay.
How does Clenil Modulite work?
When you use a Clenil Modulite inhaler (beclometasone dipropionate) it goes to work directly in the lungs to prevent the release of certain chemicals which cause inflammation. These are usually released as a natural bodily response to asthma triggers or invasive objects and are what cause inflammation in the airways, as well as the production of mucous. To ensure that you get continuous benefit from your treatment, it's important that it be used on a regular basis.
Clenil modulite needs to be used on a regular basis to work effectively at preventing asthma symptoms and reduce the risk of an asthma attack. Even when you feel better, it is essential that you continue to use this inhaler as it can improve the quality of life for many of those suffering with asthma.
What are the benefits of Clenil Modulite inhalers?
Using Clenil Modulite on a regular basis can make asthma symptoms much less likely to occur, because of the way the preventer helps to reduce the inflammation of airways in the lungs- the main cause of asthma symptoms. This preventative inhaler can also provide relief from asthma symptoms within a couple of days of starting treatment, although it should not be used as a reliever inhaler.
As this treatment is an inhaled treatment, it's less likely to cause side effects when compared to oral steroid treatments for asthma.

- Hold the mouthpiece between your lips.
- At the same time as you first start to breathe in, press the top with your finger to spray the medicine.
