Aerocort– 100/100 mcg Rotacaps comprises of two active pharmaceutical ingredients called Beclomethasone Dipropionate and Levosulbutamol. This ingredient Beclomethasone is a glucocorticoid drug that produces anti inflammatory effects. It works by reducing the inflammation in your airways. When the inflammation has gone, your airways are much less likely to become narrow and cause symptoms such as wheezing.
Where as Levosulbutamol is a beta receptor agonist and it exerts bronchodilator effects by stimulating the beta-2 receptors that relax the smooth muscles of all airways from the trachea to the terminal bronchioles. This ingredient helps in relaxing the constricted bronchioles and facilitates the smooth breathing.
