Hi Hariharan,

The drug present in the Vent BEC inhaler is a common medicine used for asthma. The content of this is Salbutamol and Beclomethasone and you can ask for this in inhalation form from the pharmacy in the USA.
This is a common medication used of the asthma. It is important to know if your sister is suffering from asthma or something else. There is a possibility of allergic asthma is also there, but medication used for that condition can be different.
As of now you can asked for the inhalation form of this drug in the dose of Salbutamol 50mcg/puff and Beclomethasone 100 mg/puff. This is the common dose for these medication and normally it is given 2-3 times per day or as per your doctor ask you.

Thanks and take care.
