What is Flovent HFA?
Flovent HFA, with the generic name fluticasone propionate, is an oral inhalation indicated to asthma among patients 4 years old and above. It is used to prevent and control symptoms, such as shortness of breath and wheezing. It helps people do normal, everyday activities.
This oral corticosteroid has a potent anti-inflammatory effect. Flovent HFA inhibits multiple cell types and mediator secretion involved in an asthmatic response. It reduces the swelling of the airway and the lungs, which allows for easier breathing. However, this type of medication does not work immediately and should not be used for sudden asthma episodes.
This is available in Flovent HFA 220 mcg (equivalent to 250 mcg), Flovent HFA 110 mcg (equivalent to 125 mcg), and Flovent HFA 44 mcg (equivalent to 50 mcg).
How to use Flovent HFA
To initiate, read the medication information leaflet that comes with this product. Do not use this inhalation unless you have fully understood the instructions and drug information in the guide provided. If you need further medical advice or have queries about using this corticosteroid, you may ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Remember to use this drug regularly and exactly as directed. Make a dosing schedule to avoid missing your dose. If you are prescribed other oral inhalations, note that there should be at least a one-minute interval, and you should use Flovent HFA lat.
Do not alter your dosing as it depends on your medical condition, response to treatment, age, and weight. Also, do not stop taking Flovent HFA abruptly to avoid withdrawal symptoms, including nausea, fatigue, muscle pain, dizziness, and weakness.
Step by step guide on using Flovent Inhaler:

- Hold it in a vertical position, mouthpiece down.

- Hold your breath for a minimum of 10 seconds. Then, exhale slowly. If you have prescribed two puffs or actuations, wait for at least 30 seconds before taking another one.

Precautions when using Flovent HFA

Certain conditions may directly affect how your body will respond to treatment. Additionally, talk about all the prescription drugs and nonprescription drugs you are taking because of the possible drug interactions with corticosteroids.
Be watchful for an allergic reaction while using this inhaler. Do not use this oral inhalation if you have a known allergy to fluticasone or any inactive ingredients it may contain.
