Fluticasone is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. Always wash the mouth out after using a steroid inhaler or discus.

Inhaler strengths are measured differently in the United States. In the United States, inhalers are named based on the amount of medication delivered from the actuator. In Europe and Israel, inhalers are measured based on the amount of medication delivered from the valve.

44mcg = 50mcg
110mcg = 125mcg
220mcg = 250mcg

The most common side effects of fluticasone are headache, upper respiratory infections, throat irritation, nasal congestion, nasal discharge, and hoarseness or difficulty speaking. Fluticasone may also cause bronchospasms (wheezing). Bronchospasms should be treated with a rescue inhaler. Oral candidiasis or thrush (a fungal infection) may occur. High doses of inhaled fluticasone may decrease formation and increase break-down of bone thereby weakening bones and promoting fractures. Higher doses of fluticasone also may suppress the body’s ability to make its own natural glucocorticoid in the adrenal gland. People with suppression of their adrenal glands (which can be diagnosed by a testing performed by doctors) need increased amounts of glucocorticoids, probably by the oral or intravenous route, during periods of high physical stress when glucocorticoids are particularly important. Inhaled steroids may suppress growth, weaken the immune system, and may increase the risk of glaucoma (increased eye pressure), and cataracts. Allergic reactions, including swelling of face, throat and tongue, rash, hives, and breathing problems also may occur.

FLOVENT® HFA Inhalation Aerosol is indicated for the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy in patients aged 4 years and older. It is also indicated for patients requiring oral corticosteroid therapy for asthma.

  • What is fluticasone propionate inhaler used for?

    Flovent (fluticasone propionate inhaler) is prescribed for adults and children over the age of three who are experiencing breathing difficulties, tight chest, wheezing, and coughing caused by asthma. It is a corticosteroid that works to decrease inflammation in the nasal passages and sinuses. This can help decrease symptoms such as stuffy nose. Fluticasone is also used to treat chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps.
  • What happens if you drink water after using an inhaler?

    After using a corticosteroid inhaler, it is recommended to gargle and rinse out the mouth with water. The water should not be swallowed, since this may increase the chance that the steroids will enter the bloodstream and increase the likelihood of side effects.
  • Can you use a fluticasone inhaler long-term?

    Only use Flovent as prescribed by the doctor. Fluticasone propionate can cause an allergic reaction such as swelling of the face, throat and tongue, rash, hives, and breathing problems. Talk to a doctor if any inhalation causes these or other side effects.
  • Does fluticasone help lungs?

    Flovent is prescribed to prevent and control symptoms of asthma, such as wheezing and shortness of breath. It reduces inflammation of the airways to make breathing easier.
  • Is fluticasone inhaler a preventer or reliever?

    The Flovent puffer contains an asthma treatment known as a 'preventer'. It does not give instant relief from an asthma attack. A relief inhaler such as Ventolin should be kept on hand in case of an asthma attack. The fluticasone inhaler may only start to work after one or two weeks. If shortness of breath or wheeze does not start to improve after the first fortnight, report this to the prescribing doctor.
