Propynate NF description

The dose which the patient gets through the mouthpiece of the device is 180 mcg.

Propynate NF contains 200 doses of finely powdered beclomethasone dipropionate mixed in a small quantity of lactose. The amount of drug received by the patient (180 mcg/dose) corresponds to that from 2 puffs of the freon-based beclomethasone inhalation aerosol with a metered dose of 100 mcg/dose. The dose to be inhaled is released from the container by pressing the device between the thumb and the forefinger. This is followed by inhalation through the device. As a result, beclomethasone dipropionate particles are transferred to their target, the lungs. Use of the Propynate NF does not require coordination of actuation of the dose and inhalation.
