Help prevent asthma attacks before they happen with QVAR RediHaler

QVAR RediHaler is a maintenance inhaler that can help prevent asthma attacks before they happen.

Used twice a day, QVAR RediHaler may help reduce airway inflammation which is an underlying cause of asthma symptoms and attacks. It also helps reduce the need to use your rescue inhaler and helps improve your breathing.

QVAR RediHaler can help you stay ahead of asthma

Do you rely on your rescue (quick-relief) inhaler more than you should for asthma "control”? Then it may surprise you to learn that asthma may not be well controlled if you:


  • use your rescue inhaler more than 2 days a week
  • have symptoms more than 2 days a week
  • are woken from sleep by symptoms more than 2 times a month

Remember—a rescue inhaler may only help stop an asthma attack after it has begun. Used twice a day, QVAR RediHaler may help:

  • reduce airway inflammation (an underlying cause of asthma symptoms and attacks)
  • reduce the need to use your rescue inhaler
  • improve your breathing

QVAR Helps Reduce Airway Inflammation

With asthma, your lungs’ airways are almost always inflamed (swollen), even when you feel fine. And sometimes it can get worse, making it hard for you to breathe.

The medicine in QVAR RediHaler can help reduce lung inflammation when taken every day as directed. The small particles of medicine in your QVAR RediHaler can target both the large and small airways.

Innovative Inhaler Design No Shaking. No Pressing. No Spacer.

Studies show that the correct inhaler technique can reduce the number of asthma attacks.1 The unique design of the QVAR RediHaler eliminates the need for hand-breath coordination. That’s because your own breath helps release the medicine. Just open the cap, inhale the medicine and then close the cap to prepare for the next dose.

  • Nothing to shake
  • Nothing to press
  • A spacer-free design (do not use a spacer)
  • A built-in dose counter on the back
