Medicine: Fostair Inhaler

The Fostair Pink Asthma Inhaler (100-6, 200-6) can be used in two ways: either as a regular everyday preventative with a separate reliever inhaler to relieve asthma attacks, or use the same Fostair Inhaler as a preventative and a reliever.

What is Fostair Inhaler 200/6 & Fostair 100/6?

Buy Fostair Pink Asthma Inhaler (100/6, 200/6) OnlineFostair Inhaler 200 6 or the Pink Asthma Inhaler is a Prescription Asthma Treatment which is used to treat and prevent asthma and asthma symptoms, specifically in adults.

Fostair comprises a pressurised inhalation which contains two active substances, Beclometasone dipropionate and Formoterol fumarate dihydrate, inhaled orally, directly into the lungs.

Beclometasone dipropionate is an anti-inflammatory, reducing the irritation and swelling in the lungs. It belongs to a group of medicine called corticosteroids. Corticosteroids can be regularly taken if a person is breastfeeding or pregnant, this however comes with risk and will only be prescribed if the risk of not being treated outweighs the risk of the medicine.

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Urticaria (hives)
  • Inflamed and painful joints, tends and muscles
  • & many more

Formoterol fumarate dihydrate is a muscle relaxer, allowing the airways to breathe easier. It belongs to a group of medicines known as long-acting bronchodilators. It can also treat many of these following lung/breathing issues –

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Breathing difficulties brought on by exercise

These two substances combine to make breathing easier and less painful, as well as reducing the common symptoms of asthma, such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Each inhalation of Fostair 100 6 or Fostair 200 6 is the equivalence of six micrograms formoterol fumarate and 200 micrograms of beclomethasone dipropionate.
