How Does Fostair 100/6 Work?

The two active components in Fostair inhalers are a corticosteroid called beclometasone dipropionate and a bronchodilator called formoterol fumarate. Corticosteroids are hormones that are naturally produced by the adrenal glands. They have numerous crucial functions, including the regulation of inflammatory responses. Beclometasone is an artificial derivative of natural hormones that are used to treat lung inflammation. Beclometasone is absorbed into the cells of the lungs and airways when you breathe it in. It prevents these cells from secreting chemicals that cause inflammation by keeping them from releasing inflammatory chemicals. Beclometasone inhibits inflammation in the lungs, causing the airways to tighten and making it difficult for air to enter and exit. As a result, Beclometasone aids the prevention of asthma attacks and shortness of breath by limiting inflammation.
