I was wondering I take 2 puffs of Qvar twice a day it is a steroid does it make one fat since it is a steroid ## QVar contains the active ingredient Beclomethasone.

No Rx yet, till hopefully Monday. I will miss a few days after a month or so of the sample 2 puffs 2 x day. Along with 1 x day Spiriva Respimat. This is for moderate COPD recent diagnosis. Question is - is it any risk to be suddenly off the QVar?

Asthma Nurse

Was soundly berated because I hadn't picked up prescription for months. I tried to explain I hadn't been able to afford the prescriptions. Then I was told off because I asked for a repeat prescription for Serevent inhaler which I use with the Qvar inhaler I tried to point out that the Qvar had 200 doses whereas the Seravent had 120, therefore I was going to run out of the Serevent before I ran out of the Qvar. She wouldn't listen, told me off as if I were a child. I am 60 years old and have had asthma all my life. I came away feeling depressed and angry. ## Hello, Cat! How are you?

8 Puffs a Day?

I have been prescribed 4 puffs twice a day on Qvar, and it's helping with the breathing but it's also making me voraciously hungry ALL THE TIME. My Doctor seems to think that this dosage will be helpful for me, but I'm concerned. I also take Marshmallow Root to thin the mucus and wonder if that could have any interactions with the Qvar. Any thoughts/comments/suggestions? I'm scared to be on steroids for such a long length of time as I'm already overweight. ## There are other possible concerns to long-term steroid use, aside from just the weight gain. You could also experience compromised immunity, fluid retention and other issues. Learn more Qvar details here. And as to feeling hungry, you'll really have to put some willpower into controlling how much you eat and...
