Formoterol/Beclomethasone Inhaler - What is it for

​Foster inhaler is used to help control symptoms in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a disease affecting the lungs which makes it harder for the person to breathe as the disease gets worse.

Foster contains two ingredients, Formoterol and Beclomethasone. Formoterol helps to keep the airways open, making it easier for air to move in and out of the lungs. Beclomethasone is a steroid and helps to reduce and prevent swelling and inflammation in the airways.

Foster is normally referred to as a ‘preventer’ or ‘controller’ inhaler as it helps to prevent symptoms such as breathlessness in asthma and COPD. It can also help to reduce the chances of having an asthma attack.
