About Flixotide Evohaler

As an anti-inflammatory steroid medicine, Flixotide Evohaler work to treat any inflammation or mucus build-up in the lungs by using fluticasone to clear the airways and make breathing easier. This 'preventer' should be used every day to ensure best results but it won & rsquo;t be prescribed on its own & ndash; it is usually given in conjunction with a 'reliever' inhaler, or other inhalers or tablets used to treat asthma.

What is Flixotide?

Fluticasone propionate belongs to the group of so-called corticosteroids. Corticosteroids are used in the treatment of asthma due to their anti-inflammatory activity. They reduce inflammation and irritation in the walls of the small air passages in the lungs and thus decrease respiratory problems. Corticosteroids also help prevent asthma attacks. The Flixotide inhaler is recommended for the treatment of mild to severe asthma.

How does it work?

The Flixotide evohaler (CFC-free) contains fluticasone propionate, which is a corticosteroid and an anti-inflammatory medication that blocks the production of inflammatory chemicals released into the airways in response to an asthma trigger, such as allergens or air irritants. Inflammation is one of the underlying causes of asthma along with bronchospasm, which is constriction or narrowing of the bronchioles (small airways). The Flixotide inhaler works directly on the walls of the airways to reduce inflammatory reactions in the airways, helping to prevent asthma symptoms caused by inflamed and inflamed airways such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. It does not relieve the bronchospasm that occurs during an asthma attack and you need a "soothing" medicine to open up the airways.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Flixotide reduces the sensitivity of the airways to certain stimuli such as smoke, pet hair, cold air, and physical exertion. Its action helps prevent a respiratory crisis. This anti-inflammatory is prescribed against asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and other respiratory diseases. The effect of Flixotide is only preventive: it is not suitable to treat acute respiratory crises, for that you need a bronchodilator-acting inhaler.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always take the Flixotide inhaler as directed by your doctor exactly. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again.

Your doctor will indicate the duration of treatment with the Flixotide inhaler. Do not stop treatment earlier, even if you feel better.

It is important to inhale each dose as directed by your doctor. The normal dose is:

Adults: 100 to 1,000 micrograms twice a day.

Children over 4 years old: 50 to 100 micrograms twice a day.

Children 1 to 4 years: 100 micrograms twice daily, administered using a pediatric spacer device fitted with a mask.

The doctor must decide the dose and frequency of administration, as well as the type of inhaler.

This medicine may take a few days to take effect. Therefore it is very important to use it regularly. Tell your doctor and stop treatment if breathing or "whistling" worsens after using the Flixotide evohaler (inhaler). Tell your doctor if breathing difficulties or "whistles" worsen or do not improve after 7 days or if you notice that the use of other inhalation medications is increasing.

Do not use this medication to treat a sudden drowning attack, it will not work for you. You will need a different medication. If you take more than one medication, be careful not to confuse them.

If you feel that the action of the Flixotide evohaler is too strong or weak, please inform your doctor or pharmacist.
