What is Kelhale?

Kelhale is a treatment for people with mild, moderate or severe asthma. Provided through an inhaler, this medication is known as a ‘preventer’, meaning it is taken on a regular basis to prevent symptoms of asthma from developing and causing the patient breathing difficulties. Kelhale is intended only for use by adults aged 18 and above.

How does Kelhale work?

Kelhale contains beclometasone dipropionate, which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. When the medicine is inhaled, it works deep in the lungs by reducing inflammation, swelling and irritation in the airways. Normal breathing is therefore made easier for the patient, as they should be protected from the breathing difficulties associated with asthma attacks.

As a preventer treatment, Kelhale won’t provide immediate relief if a patient does end up experience wheezing or breathlessness. A ‘reliever’ inhaler should be used in this scenario instead.

How do I use Kelhale?

Your doctor and product information leaflet should provide detailed instructions on how to use and maintain your inhaler device correctly. Your doctor should also determine the right strength of medication to use. How many puffs you take each day will depend on the strength you’ve been prescribed and how strong your asthma condition is considered to be.

Using Kelhale 50 micrograms inhaler

When treating mild asthma, the starting dose is one puff twice a day. This may be increased to two puffs twice a day later on. If treating moderate asthma, then the starting dose is two puffs twice a day and this may be later adjusted to four puffs twice a day. For severe asthma, the starting dose is four puffs twice a day and this may go up to eight puffs twice a day.

Using Kelhale 100 micrograms inhaler

The 100 micrograms version of this inhaler should not be used for initial treatment if you are treating mild asthma. If you initially use the 50 micrograms inhaler to treat mild asthma, then you could potentially switch to the 100 micrograms inhaler later on, when the dosage will be one puff twice a day.

When treating moderate asthma, the dosage with this inhaler is one puff twice a day to begin with. This may be increased to two puffs twice a day. For severe asthma, the starting dose is two puffs twice a day. This could be increased to up to four puffs twice a day.

What are the side effects of Kelhale?

Kelhale can potentially cause side effects, like with any other medicine, but most are a rare occurrence. The most common side effects associated with this particular medication include the following:

  • A sore mouth or thrush
  • Changes in how things taste
  • Hoarseness
  • Pharyngitis

While other potential side effects are unlikely to occur, some of them can be serious and will probably require help from your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department. For instance, you should stop taking this medication and seek medical help if you experience an allergic reaction. Symptoms of this can include a skin rash and swelling of the lips, eye, face or neck leading to breathing difficulties.

Can I use Kelhale?

Before you start using this treatment, it’s important to establish that there are no circumstances regarding your health that could potentially cause complications with using Kelhale. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist as a precaution if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have or have previously had tuberculosis (TB)
  • You have to avoid alcohol for any reason
  • When transferring from steroid tablets to an inhaler you find that even though your chest is getting better, you feel generally unwell
  • Recently your asthma seems to have been getting worse and you’ve possibly found yourself using your ‘reliever’ inhaler more often than usual
  • You are pregnant, breastfeeding or think you may be pregnant

You should also tell your doctor or pharmacist about any other medication you are currently using. It’s particularly important to mention if you are using Disulfiram, Metronidazole or medicine that treats HIV infection (such as ritonavir).

What if I use too much Kelhale?

If you accidentally use more of this medication than you should, inform your doctor as soon as possible. You may become more vulnerable to the side effects associated with this medication, particularly the more common ones.

What if I forget to use Kelhale?

If you forget to take a dose from this inhaler at your usual time, then take the recommended number of puffs as soon as you remember. If, however, it is nearly time to take the following dose, then skip the forgotten dose and just take the next one at the usual time. Continue to use your inhaler regularly at the correct time. Don’t take more puffs than instructed in order to make up for a forgotten dose.

What if I don’t think the treatment is working?

If you think your usual treatment with Kelhale is not working properly, possibly because your symptoms are getting worse rather than better, then speak to your doctor about this issue. You should not stop using this medication or adjust the daily dosage without checking with your doctor first.
