Fluticasone flovent

Common Questions and Answers about Fluticasone flovent


Avatar n tn I have been on Flovent 110, 4 puffs a day for 6 months now and I have gained 4 lbs., started bruising, started having facial hair like peach fuzz, my fingers are always swollen and I feel stiff all over. Has anyone else had these things happen to them?
1398693 tn?1343688338 I haven't taken the Flovent today and the ringing was gone so I thought it WAS the extra Fluticasone.
Avatar n tn Advair™ Diskus® (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Powder contains 2 medicines. The inhaled steroid Flovent® (fluticasone propionate) has a half life of around 5 hours, so it would be totally out of your system in a few days. The inhaled long-acting bronchodilator Serevent® (salmeterol) has a similar half life, so it would be totally out of your system after 5 days. When steroid side effects occur, they may linger for weeks or even months after the medicine has been stopped.
Avatar f tn To: Docs, Community I have severe Esophageal Lichen Planus with Esophageal Constriction & sores throughout all the way down to my stomach. I've read about successful TX using liquid fluticasone propionate 220 mcg swallowed twice a day. Should I use Flonase or Flovent, or is there a liquid version of this for swallowing down the throat into the Esophagus? Help can only eat liquids, under doctor care & loss 35 lbs. within the last 2 months.
Avatar m tn I have had a endoscopy and was told I have a fairly serious case of this disease, which is why I have swallowing difficulties and I given a prescription for flovent to treat it. However, I now have a $4000 deductible on my health insurance, and can no longer afford to spend $200 or $250 for the flovent inhaler. Canadian versions of the inhaler are slightly cheaper, but not by much.
Avatar n tn Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), in the same class of medicine as ibuprofen. It is unclear, from the information provided, why it was prescribed. You should ask your doctor about the rationale. What you describe sounds like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis, due to cigarette smoking. The coughing and wheezing may persist for months or even years. But, your decision to quit smoking is extremely important.
Avatar n tn I am not certain but I doubt that discontinuation of Advair™ Diskus® (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Powder 36 hours before a methacholine challenge would guarantee the absence of an anti-inflammatory effect of Flovent® HFA Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate). Even were the last dose of medicine to be out of your system there might be a significant lapse time between discontinuation of the medicine and the return of full-blown inflammation of the airways.
Avatar n tn Advair is a combination of Flovent(fluticasone propionate) and Serevent(salmeterol). Flovent and Serevent actually have more actuations available to the patient. In other words, I believe the Advair discus has 28 actuations or "puffs" available to the patient, where as the Flovent and Serevent have 200 actuations each. To buy the Flovent and Serevent inhalers seperately, it would cost a little more. But they may last you longer.
Avatar m tn I notice that the ingredient that in Flonase is the same (fluticasone propionate) as is found in Flovent.. It occurs to me that flonase might even work better because more of the stream of fluticasone propionate would hit the back of my throat and be swallowed, getting more to my esophagus and less to my mouth. The key point though is I can get flonase inexpensively, whereas the flovent is more than I can easily afford.
Avatar n tn Some individuals achieve control with but a single medicine, an inhaled steroid such as Flovent® (fluticasone) or Pulmicort® (budesonide). There is also a less potent but effective, convenient medicine also worthy of consideration, called Singulair®, which is taken as a pill once daily. You can continue to use the Combivent® Inhalation Aerosol (ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate)as a rescue inhaler when you have acute worsening of cough or ask your doctor for an albuterol inhaler.
Avatar n tn Some individuals are exquisitely sensitive to sympathetic amines (the active ingredient of the Serevent® (salmeterol xinafoate) in Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol. It is conceivable that your daughter is very sensitive to this class of medicine. The dizziness and, especially, her "extreme" chest pain are worrisome. Both chest pain and dizziness could be indicators of an abnormal heart rhythm in response to the salmeterol.
Avatar n tn Symbicort® (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dehydrate) Inhalation Aerosol and Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol are pharmacologically fairly equally effective. Using Flovent® (fluticasone propionate) and Serevent® (salmeterol), which are contained in Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol, would be preferable.
Avatar n tn If you have asthma, this might be a good time to increase an inhaled steroid, if you are on this medicine, or ask your doctor for a prescription for one of the common inhaled steroids, for example, Flovent® HFA Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate). Good luck.
Avatar n tn You and he/she will have to resort to other preparations, to include a different inhaled steroid, such as Flovent® HFA Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate), either alone or in combination with a long-acting bronchodilator, like Serevent® Inhalation Aerosol (salmeterol xinafoate) or Foradil® Aerolizer™ (formoterol fumarate inhalation powder), such a combination being either Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol or Symbicort® (budesonide/formoterol fumarat
212161 tn?1476095111 You should begin by using the Asmanex® Twisthaler® 220 mcg (mometasone furoate inhalation powder) or the Flovent® Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate) on a regular, daily basis, as prescribed. You should then arrange to see an “asthma doctor”, either an internal medicine specialist or a lung specialist also known as a pulmonologist. Your symptoms don’t entirely fit with the diagnosis of asthma and, if not, you will want to find out what it is and get going with the proper treatment.
Avatar n tn Only Albuterol nebs or inhalers are rescue inhalers, Flovent is aka fluticasone, you can grow aspergillus with flovent and advair. Did you read the patient information that it can also cause resp infections as well as cataracts, over time? Have you changed your toothbrush, had dental cleanings or told your MD/ Have you been offered Mycelex lozenges or Diflucan? You need to do a spirometry test in office and get an oral swab culture done and clear this up. Allergy to what? Advair? Flovent?
Avatar n tn I have be givin amoyicillin, cefdinr, guaiphen-d, propoxy-n/apap, azithroycin, hisinex hc syrup, aluterol.when the cough did not go awaythey siad i might have asthma and was given prednisone, proair, flovent, fluticasone nasal spray. My scores to see if i had asthma are in the high 90's( 98,96,95). I still cough but not as often about 50 % less. What could be making me cough? Should i have a blood test done?
Avatar n tn Would anyone know if it would be beneficial to use inhaled steroids (such as Flovent?) for a recurrence a radiation pneumonitis, along with the systemic steroids? If so, is there a preferred one to use? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Two that would not affect your heart rate would be an inhaled steroid, such as Flovent® HFA Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate) or another medicine taken by mouth Singulair® (montelukast sodium). You should ask your doctor about these. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Advair is, as you know, a combination of flovent (fluticasone) and serevent (salmeterol), the latter in a class of drugs called (long-acting) beta-agonists. Serevent is associated with a number of adverse reactions including hyperglycemia. Thus, both serevent and flovent can result in hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugars, the defining feature of Diabetes Mellitus) and this can cause wt. loss or failure to gain weight.
Avatar n tn 1) yes, the bad air almost certainly induced acute inflammation of your bronchi, commonly called airways, but it is equally certain that this inflammation is completely reversible, although it may require months of therapy with the Symbicort® (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dehydrate) Inhalation Aerosol, Flovent® HFA Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate), Pulmicort Flexhaler® (budesonide inhalation powder) or similar medicines; 2) No, the treatment would not have had an adverse effect on
Avatar n tn I started having panic attacks and my bronchel tubes where getting hard to breath so i started back on Advair. I am going to get Flovent to replace it if i need it but i am really trying to get off all medications, eating better and living a healthier life style!!!! I don't like all these scary painful side affects i will do what ever i have to, to stay away from Advair. GOD BLESS If anyone had any information about getting off and withdrawls it would be greatly appreciated!
Avatar m tn This inflammation is of a different type than the inflammation seen with asthma, yet you still might benefit from the use of medicines used to treat asthma such as a long-acting bronchodilator, such as, Serevent® Inhalation Aerosol (salmeterol xinafoate) along with an inhaled steroid, such as Flovent® Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate), the combination of the 2 is available as Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol.
284558 tn?1225610592 A common option for severe-persistant asthmatics is to use an inhaler that combines two medications, a long acting beta2-agonist with a corticosteroid. Advair combines Fluticasone (a corticosteroid) and Salmeterol (a beta2-agonist), while Symbicort combines Budesonide (a corticosteroid) and Formoterol (a beta2-agonist). Both are good options, that come in a variety of different strengths. Alternatively, corticosteroid inhalers without the beta2-agonist component are also available.
Avatar n tn If your husband must visit his side of the family, and that is a big IF, he should be pre-medicated with asthma medicines, to include an inhaled steroid, such as Flovent® Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate), and an anti-leukotriene medicine that is taken in pill form. He should also request that a no-smoking and no-dogs-allowed section should be set aside, in each home you visit and that if relatives want to visit with him that they come to that area and not smoke there.
Avatar m tn (one every 24 hours) ( this is the full name) and Flovent HFA INH 250 MCG Fluticasone propionate. (twp puffs daily - one in morning and one in the evening) My question is how severe is this Pneumonia can be? Doctor also said to followup with family doctor (we went to walk-in clinic). My dad says he is improving. Such as he does not need sweater today to walk around in the house. he needed it before not now. Should I be worried about his conditions based on the medicine he has received?
Avatar f tn I've used several bottles, or several months, of Fluticasone Propionate, which is a steroid nasal spray... I think it is the generic of Flonase. It may be that I can't tell because I am in permanent atrial fibrillation. But I haven't identified any problems other than it doesn't help reduce my nasal congestion. I just switched to Astepro, not a steroid, and it too doesn't give my congestion much relief. On the other hand Afrin works great, but it can ot be used continuously.
