The Fostair NEXThaler is a powder that contains two substances that allow you to breathe easier. It’s inhaled through the mouth and delivered deeply into the lungs. To do this, Fostair NEXThaler contains two active ingredients called beclometasone dipropionate anhydrous and formoterol fumarate dihydrate.
These two active substances combine, allowing easier breathing and preventing further asthma symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath and coughing.
The first of these substances, Beclometasone dipropionate anhydrous, is an anti-inflammatory, reducing the irritation and swelling in the lungs. It belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. Corticosteroids can be regularly taken if a person is breastfeeding or pregnant, this however comes with risks and will only be prescribed if the risk of not being treated outweighs the risk of causing possible harm to the baby.
Corticosteroids are regularly used to treat other conditions including –
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Urticaria (hives)
- Inflamed and painful joints, tendons and muscles
- & many more
The difference between regular beclometasone dipropionate, contained in Fostair Pink Inhalers, and beclometasone dipropionate anhydrous, contained in Fostair NEXThaler, is that the anhydrous version contains no water.
The second active ingredient, Formoterol fumarate dihydrate, is a muscle relaxer. Once inhaled this allows the airways to breathe easier. It belongs to a group of medicines called long-acting bronchodilators. It can also treat many of the following lung/breathing issues –
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Chronic bronchitis
- Breathing difficulties brought on by exercise
Each inhalation of Fostair 100 6 is the equivalence of 100 micrograms of beclometasone dipropionate anhydrous and six micrograms of formoterol fumarate dihydrate.
Each inhalation of Fostair 200 6 is the equivalence of 200 micrograms of beclometasone dipropionate anhydrous and six micrograms of formoterol fumarate dihydrate.
If you are prescribed a Fostair NEXThaler it’s likely that –
- Asthma symptoms are not being adequately controlled
- The asthma has responded well to both long-acting bronchodilators and corticosteroids
Fostair Nexthaler 200 6
You should not use the Fostair Nexthaler 200 6 if you are experiencing acute asthma symptoms such as shortness of breath, wheezing and cough, your asthma is getting worse or you are having an acute asthma attack. Acute asthma attacks should be treated with a quick-acting “reliever” inhaler which should be carried at all times.
A quick acting reliever inhaler relieve symptoms of an acute asthma attack very quickly by opening up the airways, often used to treat sudden asthma symptoms. The Fostair NEXThaler 200 6 is used as a preventer, preventing asthma symptoms from appearing in the first place.
Fostair Nexthaler 100 6
A lower strength Fostair NEXThaler 100 6 may be prescribed if your symptoms aren’t as severe. Someone may also be prescribed a long-acting bronchodilator such as a Fostair Nexthaler 100 6 because symptoms aren’t being controlled by a steroid inhaler alone.
By containing both ingredients, the Fostair NEXThaler 100 6 is great for people who need both a steroid and bronchodilator to control their symptoms. Other brands that have combination inhalers include:

If this is your first time using the Fostair NEXThaler you should follow the video below as it can more easily demonstrate the correct procedure when compared to text.
If you know how to use Fostair Nexthaler and are just refreshing yourself on the details, remember to follow your doctors specific instructions instead of any listed in the patient information leaflet or instructional videos.
Fostair Nexthaler 200
Fostair Nexthaler 200 is known as a long acting bronchodilator because the effects last for up to twelve hours. A short acting reliever, usually the colour blue, only lasts for up to four hours and is only for when symptoms are getting worse or an asthma attack is currently happening.
There are three different kinds of long-acting bronchodilator, each with a different name. These include LABAs, LAMAs and Theophylline.
Fostair Nexthaler 200 is a LABA. A long acting beta 2 agonist. These are usually prescribed to people with asthma.
LAMAs (long acting muscarinic antagonist) are mainly prescribed for people with COPD but are sometimes helpful for people with more difficult or severe asthmas who are in specialist care.
Theophylline’s either come as a tablet or capsule and is not a steroid. They are usually given as an ‘add on’ to already existing treatment options, such as a reliever or preventer inhaler. Once taken, Theophylline relaxes the smooth muscles in your airways so they can open up and allow air to flow through them more easily.

Fostair Nexthaler COPD
Fostair Nexthaler COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). This is group of conditions affecting the lungs, causing breathing difficulties.
These conditions include –
- Emphysema – damage to the air sacs in a lung(s)
- Chronic bronchitis – long term airway inflammation
These conditions can progressively get worse over time and can limit an individual’s regular activities throughout the day.
People who have repeated attacks of breathlessness can use Fostair and relieve symptoms of COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Only Fostair 100 6 and the Fostair NEXThaler 100 6 strength are suitable for treating COPD.
COPD is a common condition that commonly affects middle aged or older adults who smoke. Symptoms can get worse over time, but treatment can help keep it under control. A large majority of people never realise they have it.
To significantly reduce the chances of developing COPD, smoking should be avoided. As a largely preventable disease, if you already smoke, stopping can help prevent any further damage to the lungs.
Asthma is a common lung condition that causes occasional breathing difficulties.
It affects people of all ages and often starts in childhood, although it can also develop for the first time in adults.
There’s currently no cure, but there are simple treatments that can help keep the symptoms under control so it doesn’t have a big impact on your life.
The main symptoms of asthma are:
wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing)
a tight chest, which may feel like a band is tightening around it
The symptoms can sometimes get temporarily worse. This is known as an asthma attack.
Several conditions can cause similar symptoms, so it’s important to get a proper diagnosis and correct treatment.
Your GP will usually be able to diagnose asthma by asking about symptoms and carrying out some simple tests.
The main types are:
reliever inhalers – used when needed to quickly relieve asthma symptoms for a short time (e.g salbutamol)
preventer inhalers (steroid) – used every day to prevent asthma symptoms occurring
Some people also need to take tablets.
Causes and triggers
Asthma is caused by swelling (inflammation) of the breathing tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. This makes the tubes highly sensitive, so they temporarily narrow.
It may occur randomly or after exposure to a trigger. Common asthma triggers include:
allergies – to house dust mites, animal fur or pollen, for example
smoke, pollution and cold air
infections like colds or flu
Identifying and avoiding your asthma triggers can help you keep your symptoms under control.
Like all medicines, Fostair can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
As with other inhaler treatments there is a risk of worsening shortness of breath and wheezing
immediately after using Fostair and this is known as paradoxical bronchospasm. If this occurs
you should STOP using Fostair immediately and use your quick-acting “reliever” inhaler
straightaway to treat the symptoms of shortness of breath and wheezing. You should contact your
Tell your doctor immediately if you experience any hypersensitivity reactions like skin allergies, skin
itching, skin rash, reddening of the skin, swelling of the skin or mucous membranes especially of the
eyes, face, lips and throat.
Common (affecting less than 1 in 10 people):
• Fungal infections (of the mouth and throat), headache, hoarseness, sore throat.
Pneumonia in COPD patients: Tell your doctor if you have any of the following while taking Fostair
as they could be symptoms of a lung infection:
• fever or chills
• increased mucus production, change in mucus colour
• increased cough or increased breathing difficulties
