FLUTICASONE 250MCG/ACT INH/ORAL (120 DOSES)

Generic Name: fluticasone propionate
Brand Name: Flovent
Drug class: Inhaled corticosteroids


WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF THIS MEDICATION?

Flovent and the generic fluticasone is available as an aerosol inhaler in pressurized metered-dose of: 50mcg, 125mcg, and 250mcg. As well as a dry powder inhalation device (diskus) delivering 100mcg, 250mcg, and 500mcg per inhalation of fluticasone propionate.


WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION USED FOR?

Fluticasone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. As an inhaler, the medication is used to control and prevent difficulty breathing, chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing caused by asthma in adults and children. It works by reducing swelling and irritation in the walls of the small air passages of the lungs to allow for easier breathing. This medication must be used regularly in order to effectively decrease the number and severity of asthma attacks. Not to be confused with short-acting bronchodilators (also known as quick-acting, reliever, or rescue inhaler) that work right away relieving the onset of a sudden asthma attack.

For adults and children 12 years and older, the recommended dose is 2 sprays in each nostril once a day. Some people with severe rhinitis may benefit from 2 sprays in each nostril every 12 hours. The maximum daily dose is 4 sprays in each nostril.

For children 4 to 11 years old, the recommended dose is 1 or 2 sprays in each nostril in the morning. The recommended maximum daily dose is 2 sprays in each nostril daily.

Shake the medication gently before using and gently blow your nose to clear your nostrils before each use. For the best results, this medication should be used regularly each day. For seasonal allergies, you should start using this product before the first exposure to the cause of the allergy.

If you are using this medication for the first time or you have not used it for more than 1 week, you will need to "prime" the pump by spraying the pump in the air, away from you, several times or until a fine mist is sprayed from the bottle.
