How does Qvar work?
Corticosteroids are types of hormones which are naturally produced by the adrenal glands. These hormones have very important functions, one of which is controlling inflammatory responses. Qvar is a form of synthetic corticosteroid, responsible for reducing inflammation in the lungs.
When you inhale Qvar into the lungs, what happens is that it is absorbed by the cells in the lungs and airways. The medication then prevents the release of certain types of chemicals from the cells in the lungs. The chemicals play a very important role in the immune system. They produce allergic and immune responses which lead to inflammation. By minimising the release of such chemicals, inflammation is decreased.
