What is Soprobec®?

Soprobec contains beclometasone dipropionate in a pressurised inhalation solution.


Maintenance treatment of asthma when the use of pressurised metered dose inhaler is appropriate. See SmPC for full details.


Starting dose should be adjusted to severity of disease, then adjusted until control is achieved, then titrated to lowest dose at which effective asthma control is maintained.

Adults (including the elderly): Usual starting dose is 200 mcg twice daily. In severe cases this may be increased up to 600-800 mcg daily. (Soprobec 250 mcg only: usually 1000 mcg daily, which may be increased to 2000 mcg daily). Dose may be reduced when the patient’s asthma has stabilised. Total daily dose should be administered as 2-4 divided doses.

Children: Usual starting dose is 100 mcg twice daily. Depending on asthma severity, this may be increased up to 400 mcg administered in in 2-4 divided doses. Soprobec 200 mcg and 250 mcg are not recommended for children.

The VolumaticTM spacer device must always be used for:

  • Patients aged 16 years and older taking total daily doses of 1000 mcg or more
  • Patients aged 15 years and under taking any Soprobec dose
