What is Beclometasone Rotacaps?
Beclate Rotacaps are manufactured using a corticosteroid called Beclomethasone Dipropionate. Beclomethasone Dipropionate is a diester form of Beclomethasone, a synthetic steroid with similar properties as dexamethasone. Beclomethasone is a creamy-colored powder where this medication is included inside the Rotacaps in the manufacturing of dosage forms.
The anti-inflammatory properties of corticosteroids can be used in relieving respiratory symptoms associated with inflammation. Asthma is a chronic respiratory disorder that results in the inflammation of the respiratory tract. As a result, the lumen of the airways gets narrowed, making it challenging to exchange gasses. The bronchial mucosal lining will produce excessive mucous, and the ciliary epithelium will fail to clear out the mucus layers, resulting in lessening the lumen size. As a result, the patients become difficult to breathe. Asthma is triggered due to allergens. As a defense mechanism, the patients may experience sneezing and runny nose. These symptoms can be suppressed with the inhalation of Beclate Rotacaps.
Asthma is difficult to cure with treatments. Avoiding allergens and regular inhalers and using medications during seasonal changes will help the patients prevent flare-ups. But there are instances where these patients may experience acute asthma attacks. In such cases, Beclate inhalers will not relieve the symptoms. It is recommended to seek immediate medical consultations during acute attacks. The corticosteroids are included in minimal doses, and they take some time to act within the respiratory system. Therefore the results can only be experienced only after a few days. So Beclate inhalers are recommended to use as a maintenance dose.
Possible side effects of Beclate Rotacaps
Like all other medications, Beclomethasone Dipropionate may also result in several side effects. These side effects may go away when the consumer gets used to it. If these side effects persist, further talk with your physician to make necessary changes. One in hundreds of consumers may experience allergic responses against Beclomethasone Dipropionate. They may present with skin rashes, hives, fever, swelling of the body parts, and severe allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis. Common side effects are soreness in the throat, cough, headache, and irritation around the throat.
Do not stop the Beclate Rotacaps inhalation as you experience the mild side effects. Wait for around one week and when there is no improvement, talk with your doctor. There may be a few long-term side effects. As Beclate Rotacaps contain corticosteroids, they can suppress the activity of the adrenal glands resulting in moon face and weight gain and reducing bone density. The children’s growth can get reduced when using corticosteroids for a longer duration.
