Also Known As: Qvar, Beclovent, Clenil, Vanceril inhaler

Beclovent, Qvar and Clenil are ihailed versions of Beclometasone dipropionate (INN modified) or beclomethasone dipropionate (USAN, former BAN), also referred to as beclometasone (INN), is a potent glucocorticoid steroid. In the form of an inhaler (e.g. Clenil, Qvar), a wide number of brands of which are available, it is used for the prophylaxis of asthma. As a nasal spray (e.g. Beconase, alanase, Vancenase), it is used for the treatment of rhinitis (e.g. hayfever) and sinusitis. In some instances, it is used by oral pathologists in the treatment of unusually severe aphthous ulcers.

As a cream or ointment (trade name Propaderm), it is used to treat severe inflammatory skin disorders (e.g. eczema) unresponsive to less potent steroids, but is generally avoided in the treatment of psoriasis due to the risk of rebound on withdrawal.

It is also licensed to treat ulcerative colitis in conjunction with doses of 5-aminosalicylates in the United Kingdom in the form of a gastric acid-resistant, periodic release tablet marketed under the brand name Clipper.
