What is Clenil Modulite?

Clenil Modulite is commonly prescribed to treat the symptoms of asthma and reduce the risk of an asthma attack.

Clenil Modulite proves an effective treatment when used to alleviate breathing difficulties associated with asthma and other breathing conditions. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways to the lungs, making it easier for an individual to breathe and catch their breath.

Clenil Modulite contains the active ingredient beclometasone dipropionate and is classed a corticosteroid. When inhaled, this ingredient is absorbed by the cells in the lungs and airways and starts to help with the symptoms associated with asthma, such as tightness of the shortness of breath and wheezing.

You can buy Clenil Modulite from Medicine Direct after an online consultation with one of our doctors, who will prescribe you this treatment if they deem it suitable for you. You can purchase either 1 inhaler or 2 inhalers from our online pharmacy.

What is Clenil Modulite used to treat?

Clenil Modulite is a type of preventer inhaler used to prevent the symptoms of asthma. Most preventer inhalers contain certain steroids that, when inhaled, can help to reduce swelling and inflammation of the lungs and airways, which will then allow air to pass through more freely.

Preventer inhalers like Clenil Modulite help to prevent asthma attacks and should be taken on a daily basis.

They are different to reliever inhalers as they do not provide instant relief of asthma symptoms, instead they help to build up a defence against asthma and prevent future attacks. In contrast, reliever inhalers contain the active ingredient, salbutamol, which is very fast acting and provides instant relief to anyone who is experiencing an asthma attack. Reliever inhalers such as ventolin should be used when an individual comes into contact with a known asthma trigger, such as pollen or cold air.

In the event of an asthma attack, a preventer inhaler will not provide instant relief. You will need a reliever inhaler and this must be carried with you at all times.

Who can use Clenil Modulite?

Clenil Modulite may not be suitable for everyone to use. Inform your doctor if any of the following apply to you before you use Clenil Modulite:

  • You have ever been, or are currently being treated for tuberculosis (TB)
  • You cannot drink alcohol for any reason
  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients in this medicine, or any other medicines used to treat asthma
  • When transferring from a steroid to an inhaler, you feel unwell, have a skin rash, a runny nose, or are sneezing. Do not stop the treatment unless advised to by your doctor.
  • Your asthma appears to be getting worse while you use Clenil Modulite. Your reliever inhaler may seem less effective than before, or you may need to use your reliever inhaler more frequently/in higher doses than usual.

Read the patient information leaflet thoroughly for more information.

Possible Side Effects

As with all medications, Clenil Modulite inhalers do come with the risk of certain side effects, although not everyone gets them.

Below is a list of common adverse effects people may experience while using a Clenil Modulite inhaler. Speak to your doctor if any of these symptoms bother you or do not go away:

  • Sore throat, hoarse voice, sore tongue
  • Oral thrush
  • Allergic reactions such as hives, redness or itching

Rinsing your mouth with water and spitting it out after using the inhaler may reduce the risk of developing adverse reactions in your mouth.

Clenil Modulite Dose

Clenil Modulite inhalers can come in a variety of dosages. The dose that you are prescribed will be dependent on the severity of your condition and the symptoms you are experiencing. Clenil Modulite 200mcg and 250mcg are not suitable for children.

Clenil Modulite 50mcg

The most common starting does for this strength is 4 puffs twice a day for adults. The daily doses are usually always split up into twos, for example 2 puffs in the morning and 2 puffs at night.

Clenil Modulite 100mcg

The normal starting dose for adults is 200mcg (2 puffs) twice a day. It is important to split up your doses, most commonly in the morning and at night. The most commonly recommended use is 2 puffs in the morning and 2 puffs at night.

Clenil Modulite 200mcg

For adults and elderly patients, 1 puff twice a day. Divide the dose into two separate doses throughout the day, 1 puff in the morning followed by 1 puff at night.

How to use a Clenil Modulite

As with all asthma inhalers, it is important that you are using the correct technique to ensure that the full dose of medicine is reaching your lungs.

We recommend always reading the manufacturer’s guide, located inside your inhaler box, when you start using an inhaler. Always follow the instructions given to you by your doctor.

 If you do not use your inhaler correctly, this could mean that very small amounts of the medication are not reaching its intended target, and there is a risk that the inhaler will not be as effective in preventing future asthma attacks or asthma symptoms.

It is important to keep your inhaler clean by cleaning it before and after use. This can prevent you from inhaling any unwanted bacteria and dust that can potentially trigger an asthma attack or symptoms.

By using your inhaler correctly, you will ensure that your lungs are receiving the recommended daily dosage of medicine, as prescribed by your doctor or pharmacist. It is also important to regularly have your inhaler technique checked by a doctor or pharmacist, to ensure that you are using your Clenil Modulite inhaler correctly.

Testing your inhaler

If you have not used your inhaler for three days or more, or if your inhaler is new, you should simply release one puff into the air to ensure that the inhaler works correctly.

If you have recently just purchased your inhaler and are testing it for the first time, the number 200 should be displayed on the dose indicator. If this is not the case, please contact the pharmacy that you received the inhaler from.
