In brief: Steroid

Beclomethasone is a steroid.
Psychiatric changes such as aggression, depression, sleep disorders, psychomotor hyperactivity, and suicidal ideation have been reported; these effects were primarily reported in children. However, steroids can trigger hypomania and mania in susceptible individuals -- including adults.
