Alvesco (ciclesonide) is an inhalation aerosol used to treat asthma, allergic rhinitis and COPD. Ciclesonide is a corticosteroid that can reduce inflammation in the airways and lungs and reduce the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. It is not for use as a treatment of an asthma attack. Short-acting inhalers such as Ventolin are rescue inhalers that open the airways quickly when there are acute breathing problems due to asthma.
Alvesco can also be prescribed as a long-term treatment for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), usually in conjunction with long-acting beta-agonists (LABAs).
Alvesco can be prescribed to alleviate the symptoms of seasonal or year-round allergic rhinitis (hay fever) that may be caused by pollen release or systemic allergies.


Use Alvesco as prescribed. Each inhaler delivers 60 doses in measured puffs, each delivering 80 mg. The usual dosage is 160 mg per day, but this may be reduced to 80 mg daily in long-term use. In some cases of severe asthma, doctors may increase the dosage to 4 puffs twice a day, but this is for a short term only.

Read the information leaflet that comes with the medication.

Most people who use Alvesco do not experience any negative side effects. Doctors prescribe Alvesco because they assess that the benefits that such treatment yields outweighs any possible unwanted effects.

Some of the side effects that have been reported include:

  • Hoarseness
  • Increased coughing and wheezing immediately after inhalation
  • An unpleasant taste, burning, inflammation, irritation, or dryness in the mouth or throat. These can be minimized by rinsing out the mouth immediately after inhaling a dose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Oral fungal infections
  • Headache
  • Itching and redness of the skin (eczema).

Not all side effects are listed here. If these or other unlisted symptoms persist or worsen, consult a healthcare provider or pharmacist.

Alvesco can reduce the number and severity of asthma attacks for patients 12 years of age and older, as well as to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Asthma and COPD are both lung conditions that cause airway swelling and difficulty breathing.

The main symptoms of asthma are a dry cough without mucus, as well as periods of wheezing and chest tightness, especially at night. An acute asthma attack requires immediate treatment with a relief inhaler, not with an Alvesco inhaler.

COPD symptoms include a loose cough producing phlegm and irritation in the airways that can cause a buildup of mucus, making it difficult to breathe.



  • What is Ciclesonide used for?
    Alvesco is a corticosteroid that, when used regularly, decreases the number and severity of asthma attacks and reduces the symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
  • How long does it take for ciclesonide to work?
    For most people treating asthma and COPD, slight improvements can be felt within two to three days. Full benefits in the case of seasonal allergies can take two weeks, but in systemic allergies, relief can take around a month. To prevent seasonal allergy symptoms, it's advised to begin using Alvesco around a month before the start of the pollen season.
  • Is ciclesonide a decongestant?
    It is not specifically used as a decongestant. The purpose of treatment with Alvesco is to reduce the severity of systemic conditions like asthma and COPD. It can also be used in the case of stuffiness or nasal congestion caused by seasonal and year-round nasal allergies, but it does not provide immediate relief.
  • Do steroid inhalers lower your immune system?
    One of the actions of corticosteroids like ciclesonide is to suppress the body's immune system. The purpose of ciclesonide is to reduce inflammation, which can ease symptoms of inflammatory conditions, such as COPD and asthma. Lower immune responses leave the body more susceptible to infections.
