Prevention of asthma attacks Fluticasone Propionate Flixotide

Uses
Flixotide (Fluticasone Propionate) acts as an anti-inflammatory agent on the lungs, which in turn helps to alleviate the symptoms of asthma. It may also help decrease exacerbations of asthma. In general, doctors recommend its use for the prophylactic management of asthma in patients whose symptoms range from mild to severe, and in those who have previously undergone treatment with a bronchodilator or other forms of preventative treatment.

The active ingredient in this medicine is a trifluorinated corticosteroid which works by acting on the glucocorticoid receptor. Tightening of the airways due to inflammation is known to contribute to asthma. By affecting a wide variety of cells which are known to contribute to inflammation, as well as other mediators (histamine and leukotrienes), this medicine can help to prevent inflammation in the airways and lungs, and therefore can be used to reduce the occurrence of asthma attacks.

Dosage and Administration
Flixotide (Fluticasone Propionate) is administered by means of oral inhalation. Your doctor will advise you on how to properly use the inhaler, and you may also refer to the instructions provided on the packaging. If you are unsure about anything, make sure that you ask the doctor. Generally, patients with asthma will have their treatment and condition constantly reviewed by their doctor. It is important to note that the daily dosage can vary, depending on the severity of symptoms and other individual factors.

This inhaler delivers 125mcg with every dose, and there is sufficient medication contained to allow the administration of 120 metered doses. Doctors may tell adult patients treating mild asthma to administer 100mcg to 250mcg twice per day as a starting dose. Moderate or severe symptoms may require a higher starting dose. Following this, adjustments may be made to the daily dose based on how well the patient responds to treatment.

Side effects
Treatment with the Flixotide (Fluticasone Propionate) inhaler may cause some side effects, which could include:

  • Headache
  • Hoarse voice
  • Discomfort in the throat
  • Soreness affecting the sinuses
  • Dry sensation inside the nose or moth

Make sure that all side effects are reported to your doctor. Some of the potential reactions caused by this inhaled corticosteroid may be serious and will require medical attention immediately. These can include symptoms of an infection, blurry eyesight, sore eyes, breathing difficulties that are noticed after the medicine is administered, abnormal facial hair growth and other side effects which have not been listed here.

Precautions
This inhaler is not to be used for treating an acute asthma attack as it will not take effect quickly enough. Its only intended purpose is preventing these attacks from occurring.

Patients who have been sick prior to using this inhaler may be instructed by their doctor to delay the commencement of treatment until they are fully recovered.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Flixotide (Fluticasone Propionate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
