Approved Uses

QVAR® is also used for asthma patients who require systemic corticosteroid administration, where adding QVAR® may reduce or eliminate the need for systemic corticosteroids.

  • Do not use QVAR more often than it is prescribed. Do not stop taking QVAR abruptly without talking to your healthcare provider
  • QVAR may cause serious side effects, including:
    • Fungal infections (thrush). Tell your healthcare provider if you have any redness or white-colored patches in your mouth or throat. Rinse your mouth after using QVAR to help prevent an infection in your mouth or throat
    • Worsening asthma or sudden asthma attacks. After using your rescue inhaler, contact your healthcare provider right away if you do not get relief from your sudden asthma attacks
