Beclomethasone is inhaled through your mouth into your lungs in an aerosol form.  The medicine in beclomethasone oral inhaler is a corticosteroid that, when inhaled, helps you breathe easier by reducing the inflammation and swelling in your airways. The typical dose for inhaled beclomethasone (QVAR) is one or two puffs two times each day.
