The active component of QVAR 40 mcg Inhalation Aerosol and QVAR 80 mcg Inhalation
Aerosol is beclomethasone dipropionate, USP, an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid
having the chemical name 9-chloro-11β,17,21-trihydroxy-16β­methylpregna-1,4-diene-3,
20-dione 17,21-dipropionate. Beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) is a diester
of beclomethasone, a synthetic corticosteroid chemically related to dexamethasone.
Beclomethasone differs from dexamethasone in having a chlorine at the 9-alpha
carbon in place of a fluorine, and in having a 16 beta-methyl group instead
of a 16 alpha-methyl group. Beclomethasone dipropionate is a white to creamy
white, odorless powder with a molecular formula of C28H37ClO7
and a molecular weight of 521.1. Its chemical structure is:








QVAR is a pressurized, metered-dose aerosol intended for oral inhalation only. Each unit contains a solution of beclomethasone dipropionate in propellant HFA-134a (1,1,1,2 tetrafluoroethane) and ethanol. QVAR 40 mcg delivers 40 mcg of beclomethasone dipropionate from the actuator and 50 mcg from the valve. QVAR 80 mcg delivers 80 mcg of beclomethasone dipropionate from the actuator and 100 mcg from the valve. Both products deliver 50 microliters (59 milligrams) of solution formulation from the valve with each actuation. Each canister provides 100 inhalations. QVAR should be "primed" or actuated twice prior to taking the first dose from a new canister, or when the inhaler has not been used for more than ten days. Avoid spraying in the eyes or face while priming QVAR. This product does not contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
