Expert advice for Levosalbutamol + Beclometasone

  • You have been prescribed Levosalbutamol + Beclometasone for the treatment of asthma.
  • This medicine is for inhalation only. The tablet should not be swallowed.
  • Take it at the same time everyday to maintain consistent level of medicine in your body.
  • It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. Use your rescue inhaler to control sudden difficulty in breathing. 
  • Dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help.
  • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
  • Take the first dose of this medicine under medical supervision as it may cause wheezing or tightening of the airways (bronchospasm) immediately after using.
  • Your doctor may regularly monitor your  blood potassium levels as low oxygen levels in the blood (hypoxia) and medicines such as Levosalbutamol + Beclometasone can lower potassium levels in blood.
  • Only very small amounts of Levosalbutamol + Beclometasone may get absorbed into the bloodstream after inhalation. Hence, serious side effects are unlikely.
  • Do not stop taking Levosalbutamol + Beclometasone suddenly even if you don’t currently have any symptoms as that may cause your breathing problems to come back.
