As the UK continues to witness unprecedented times, Chiesi is seeing a larger number of Clenil prescriptions than usual and a dramatic increase in inhaler demand.

In order to help meet this increased demand of inhalers we have decided to release an MHRA-approved batch variation of Clenil 100 mcg.

  • The Clenil 100 mcg batch variation contains the same medication as before, and therefore requires no difference to how you manage your asthma.
  • The Clenil 100 mcg batch variation remains in the same inhaler device (pressurised metered dose inhaler; pMDI), and therefore requires no difference to the way you take your inhaler.
  • The only differences are in the appearance of your inhaler:
    • The colour of the main body of the inhaler and mouthpiece protective cap are beige and yellow respectively (instead of brown and beige respectively);
    • You will not see ‘Clenil® Modulite™ 100 mcg Inhaler PREVENTER’ embossed on the inhaler;
    • Unlike any Clenil 100 mcg inhalers that you may have received since September 2019, there is no dose indicator.
  • If you use a Volumatic™ Spacer, you should continue to use it as usual.
  • Clenil® 100mcg: Regular batch

You should check the dosage on the labelling of the outer package and canister of your Clenil inhaler prior to taking your inhaler to ensure that you have received the expected inhaler strength.

As usual, be sure to keep track of when you start to use your inhaler – each Clenil 100 mcg inhaler contains 200 doses of medication, so if you are taking two puffs of your inhaler twice a day, this means the inhaler will last for over a month.

Remember to clean your inhaler once a week. You will find instructions on how to do this on the package leaflet.

A downloadable version of this information is available here.

You can also report side effects directly via the Yellow Card Scheme at: https://yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk.
