Fostair is a combination inhaler medication used to manage asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It contains two active ingredients: beclometasone dipropionate (a corticosteroid) and formoterol fumarate dihydrate (a long-acting beta2-agonist).


How Fostair Works: Fostair works by reducing inflammation in the airways (beclometasone) and relaxing the airway muscles (formoterol), helping to prevent asthma and COPD symptoms and exacerbations.

Usage and Benefits: Fostair is an inhaler device that delivers a specific dose of medication with each inhalation. Benefits of Fostair include:

  1. Asthma and COPD Symptom Control: Regular use can help prevent symptoms and exacerbations.

  • Throat irritation
  • Oral candidiasis (yeast infection in the mouth and throat, known as thrush)
