Side effects of Flovent?
My 9 yr old daughter is using Flovent. I have noticed that since she has been on it that she has gained weight. I know this is a steroid. Anyone else experience this? Asked by Antione Mceniry 1 year ago.

No, Flovent would not cause your little girl to gain weight. Steroids have to be taken in a large dosage and over a period of time to cause weight gain. I have used Flovent and developed oral candidiasis which made my breath smell bad. My doctor prescribed a oral rinse that took care of it. Common side affects are Pharyngitis, nasal congestion, sinusitis, runny nose, laryngitis, allergic rhinitis, oral candidiasis, URI's, and headaches. Hopefully she will not be bothered with any of these. Answered by Inell Rinderknecht 1 year ago.

The side effects of Flovent (inhaled steroid) are much milder than if you were taking an oral steroid. Weight gain is possible with Flovent, but is far more common with oral steroids (e.g. Prednisone) But regardless, Flovent most commonly causes: Respiratory tract infection, throat irritation, respiratory tract inflammation, sinus infection, hoarseness, mouth infections, cough, headache, bronchitis The comment about flovent not causing weight gain by the user below is inaccurate, please see www.floventhfa.com for more information.

What is flovent hfa 110 mcg 12gm?
Asked by Gabriella Wemhoff 1 year ago.

Hi, Flovent HFA is an inhalor for asthamtics (and others with bad lung disease) that contains a medicine called fluticasone propionate, which is a synthetic corticosteroid. They are natural substances found in the body that help fight inflammation and reduce (ovr the long-trm) the swelling of the bronchiole trees with in the lung that become narrow and thickened with thick mucus during an asthma attack. It is used in people who have astham that is not reponsive to inhaleld rescure inhalors such as Ventolin. Corticosteroids are used to treat asthma because they reduce airway inflammation. They are not the only corticosteroids to be used for this. They must be taken over time and maintained like that since they take some time to begin to work. If only used every few days for a single puff, then they are not helping and this type of use is useless. Hope this helps! It is used to treat asthma in patients 4 years of age and older. The medicine is available in 3 different strengths, 44 mcg, 110 mcg, or 220 mcg Inhalation Aerosol. Which means eg: 110 micrograms of drug per puff. Answered by Yung Fife 1 year ago.

Flovent is a steroid and is use to prevent and treat airway inflammation. You use it and if nothing happens then its working. What your doc is saying is that if you have inflammation then the flovent will put it out. You continue to use it to prevent more information. If you kept spraying the same area with a fire extinguisher everyday, it is unlikely a fire would ever burn in that spot. So that said, here are some other metaphors for you.

Has Anyone Used Flovent WHile Pregnant?
My wife is currently using the flovent inhaler and we are about to try to have a baby. I was wondering if anyone has been pregnant while using the flovent inhaler? What happened? Asked by Luvenia Wosick 1 year ago.

Flovent and Albuterol are both completely safe during pregnancy. Be sure that your wife lets her OB know that she takes Flovent. It wouldn't be uncommon for her to have to increase her microgram dosage in later pregnancy when baby is big enough to put extra pressure on the lungs. Shortness of breath also increases with pregnancy so make sure to get a refill of albuterol too! : ) Good luck to you both! Answered by Carmon Benet 1 year ago.

how long do asthma medications stay in your system ie albuterol and flovent hfa??? Asked by Sidney Sumerix 1 year ago.

Some inhalers have medication that works differently on the respiratory system than others. for example, albuterol is primarily used as a rescue inhaler as it works much quicker to open airways (bronchodialator) its peak relief occurs within 15 minutes of use and slowly tapers off after that. it is not recommended to use closer than 4 hours apart, it can be repeated if needed (follow your Dr's advice on frequency) the other...Flovent is an inhaled steroid. these medications do little if anything when you are in need as their peak performance occurs an hour or so after used and slowly tapers off over 12 hours. this type of inhaler reduces inflammation of the airways. both medications have their place in the treatment of asthma and other respiratory diseases, but must be used as part of the whole treatment. the steroids should be taken every 12 hours (be sure to rinse your mouth after use of this type of inhaler to prevent a type of yeast infection in the mouth called 'thrush"). ask your pharmacist when in doubt, he (or she) specialize in knowing medications and can explain side effects ect. Answered by Tia Winski 1 year ago.

Albuterol is a short acting bronchodilator and works for 4 to 6 hours. It may stay in your system for a few hours longer without giving you any benefit. Flovent is an inhaled steroid and is supposed to be taken every 12 hours. I have found, from personal experience, that it takes 3 or 4 days for the beneficial effects of the steroid to wear off, from the time when I have stopped taking an inhaled steroid. Please don't try this on yourself. My adventure was what lead my doctor to diagnose me with asthma and almost put me in respiratory failure. Medications often stay in your system for longer than they are effective. Once the drug has done it's work, it breaks down and is excreted as waste. Answered by Ryan Wesely 1 year ago.

Has anyone ever taken Flovent for asthma? Just got diagnosed, any crazy side effects?
Asthma...Flovent??? Asked by Allen Pun 1 year ago.

I used to detail it to Physicians on a regular basis. Flovent is the best inhaled steroid money can buy. Glaxo-Smithkline the maker of Flovent is one of the best pharmaceutical companies in the world. Flovent has been around for many years and their will be no crazy side effects. Don't take my word for it, check with your pharmacist and have them print out the possibilities for side effects. If you have further questions ask the Pharmacist and that way you will have an expert opinion about your medicine. Excellent product. Answered by Judy Trybala 1 year ago.

I have Asthma and yes, I do use the Flovent Inhaler and yeah it has side effects but none hasn't happened to me yet.. I think it's completely safe to use.. I've been usin' it for months, almost a year and it really does help prevent an Asthma Attack because I have severe Asthma and its been workin' great. I also take Singulair which is a great allergy preventer. Answered by Jerrod Foggs 1 year ago.

No crazy side effects that are not associated with other asthma inhalers. Make sure that if you are taking both Flovent (a bronchodilator) and an anti-inflammatory inhaler, make sure to use the bronchodilator first! This will open the airways to allow the anti-inflammatory to work better. Also, oral fungal (Candida) infections are common with asthma inhalers, so be sure to rinse the mouth out thoroughly after using it! Good luck! Answered by Chiquita Ishihara 1 year ago.

just like any other drug it can affect you different .you may have an allergy to something in it or you may not.ask your doctor what medication is best for you and the side effects.I have used flovent and others for my asthma nothing weird happened to me. Answered by Jacinto Brooks 1 year ago.

My 10.5 month old son was diagnosed with croup on Friday. His pedi said to call back Monday morning if he still had a cough and/or fever. He was still coughing so I gave her a call. She had me come in today and now said that he could have rsv, bronchitis, or whooping cough. She prescriped ventolin, flovent, and zithromax. I tried looking around online and couldn't come up with much, but which of these illnesses do these prescriptions actually treat? Answered by Delma Nerby 1 year ago.

Flovent and ventolin are usually prescribed for asthma however in some cases of severe upper respiratory infections (which include RSV, bronchitis etc.) the doctor may prescribe these meds because they decrease the inflammation of the airway and make it easier for the child to breath. Flovent is an inhaled steroid which decreases swelling of the airway. Ventolin (albuterol) is a beta agonist which reduces spasm of the muscles in the respiratory tract. Answered by Nestor Kerksiek 1 year ago.

And while Zithromax doesn't necessarily treat whooping cough, it reduces the likelihood of it being spread to others. Respiratory syncitial virus is often diagnosed because it is going around in the community. There is a test, but it has to be sent to the lab and there may be a 48 hour turnaround before the results are known. RSV may mimic other common viruses in infants. Answered by Vanetta Detone 1 year ago.

I once suffered from Chronic Bronchitis. I would suffer sometimes 3 to 4 times per year! Usually when there was a major change in the pressure outside (I live in the north, and the temperature spikes and dips do wonders to chronic sufferers of bronchitis!). Each time I would get horrible hacking coughs, hoarking up green phlegm..it was so frustrating! The key to getting rid of your bronchitis is to find a way to completely eliminate the germs that are causing all the phlegm and irritation leading to your hoarking cough and heavy breathing.

I am on Flovent 250mcg diskus it is not working. Am I on the right dose? Is it too high.?
I have mild asthma and normal spriometry, but I am still using my albuterol daily. Asked by Bernardo Sinko 1 year ago.

Flovent takes a few weeks to kick in, IT IS NOT A FAST ACTING DRUG like albuterol. there is a 500mcg also. but if you have mild asthma you prob do not need it. always keep your alb inhaler handy even after the flovent kicks in, then you can use it for exacerbation asthma attack. Flovent WILL NOT help then....just want to make this clear. Answered by Nelson Iarussi 1 year ago.


Can a 6 year old taking Flovent and Albuterol still be throwing up phlegm every night from asthma?
This sucks seeing our daughter suffer like this. Maybe a nebulizer and a move to AZ is going to be the solution. Asked by Gertude Beierschmitt 1 year ago.

The flovent and albuterol are actually loosening the phlegm that is already in her lungs (this is actually a good thing, i know it is hard to watch and very uncomfotable for her but she needs to get it out of her lungs.). She will continuing coughing up the phlegm until it is gone. You need to determine what is causing her to be congested and talk with the doctor about prevention methods this way the flovent and albuterol won't have anything to loosen up. Answered by Ian Stasiuk 1 year ago.

I am sorry you are going through this right now with you child. My son which is now 15 months old has numerous health problems. I am a Respiratory therapsit, well versed in the diseas process of asthma. one response your bodies airway has during an attack ins inflamation, and from the words out of my professors mouth years ago in school, an inflamed tissue is a leaky tissue. Meaning basicly the asthma is not controled properly if she is still having the "phlegm". What I would recomend is finding a pediatric asthma clinic (or just the local pediatric lung doc). They can do amazing things to help children now. They put my son on singular when he was ab out 4 months old, singular and xopenex for a while in fact. after about a month he was off of the xopenex treatments. Singular is an antiasthma medication that works great. I don't agree with giving children albuterol. Xopenex has less cardiac effects, and gives better relief during an asthma episode (I have seen it hundreds of times in the hospital). Arizona is a good idea, but if you can find what is sparking these attacks, get a lung doc to look at her you will be ok. and a nebulizer is a good thing! they seem to help the little ones more. we live in east tn, the worst for asthmatics! Answered by Merrilee Blackaby 1 year ago.

OK, as an asthma sufferer, I can tell you that flem has nothing to do with asthma. Asthma is from constriction of your bronchial tubes. Moving to AZ seems like a bad idea to me, when I have an attack it is warm steam that helps me open back up. The nebulizer is a good idea. Albuterol is a steriod, it is suppose to open you up, which this is doing. But - you can unclog a drain and it will still be caked with crap. Personally, I would get a new doctor. Answered by Tory Schoeninger 1 year ago.

Yes those two meds only help breathing get easier, but they aren't anticold symptoms which often come with asthma. She can take benadryll or some sort of allergy medicine to help get rid of phlem which is a mucus problem not a lung problem. Answered by Charlene Riddel 1 year ago.

ask your doctor about possibly putting her on Asmanex. I'm on that and i used to wake up every morning wheezing because of phelgm, and it's helped A LOT. Hardly ever wake up like that anymore. I think it's safe for kids, and in my opinion it's safer than Advair, which doctors prescibe a lot. Good Luck, hope she feels better soon! Answered by Lia Flemings 1 year ago.

It is possible but it would be worth mentioning to the pediatrician. It may also be worth checking the child out for cystic fibrosis. A sweat chloride test will help diagnose that. Answered by Kyla Higashida 1 year ago.


Does flovent HFA is steriod?
I am asthmatic-If I take steriod my face swells and I also gain weight. I am taking flovent HFA 220 mcg inhaler? can you please tell me whether this has steriod and make one gain weight? Aslo please tell me if albuterol inhaler has steriod in it? did anybody gained weight after using flovent? thankyou Asked by Carin Coonrad 1 year ago.

Flovent is not the same as albuterol. Albuterol is a bronchodilator. Flovent is a corticosteroid. It is not the same as the steroids that are used for muscle building. Yes corticosteroids are known to cause people to gain weight but those effects are very very minimal. Not everyone encounters this side effect from it but a few do.

No crazy side effects that are not associated with other asthma inhalers. Make sure that if you are taking both Flovent (a bronchodilator) and an anti-inflammatory inhaler, make sure to use the bronchodilator first! This will open the airways to allow the anti-inflammatory to work better. Also, oral fungal (Candida) infections are common with asthma inhalers, so be sure to rinse the mouth out thoroughly after using it! Good luck! Answered by Zona Villano 1 year ago.

Flovent and ventolin are usually prescribed for asthma however in some cases of severe upper respiratory infections (which include RSV, bronchitis etc.) the doctor may prescribe these meds because they decrease the inflammation of the airway and make it easier for the child to breath. Flovent is an inhaled steroid which decreases swelling of the airway. Ventolin (albuterol) is a beta agonist which reduces spasm of the muscles in the respiratory tract. Answered by Franklin Helmsing 1 year ago.

And while Zithromax doesn't necessarily treat whooping cough, it reduces the likelihood of it being spread to others. Respiratory syncitial virus is often diagnosed because it is going around in the community.

Asked by Eugenio Gonzale 1 year ago.

Hi, Flovent HFA is an inhalor for asthamtics (and others with bad lung disease) that contains a medicine called fluticasone propionate, which is a synthetic corticosteroid. They are natural substances found in the body that help fight inflammation and reduce (ovr the long-trm) the swelling of the bronchiole trees with in the lung that become narrow and thickened with thick mucus during an asthma attack. It is used in people who have astham that is not reponsive to inhaleld rescure inhalors such as Ventolin. Corticosteroids are used to treat asthma because they reduce airway inflammation. They are not the only corticosteroids to be used for this. They must be taken over time and maintained like that since they take some time to begin to work. If only used every few days for a single puff, then they are not helping and this type of use is useless. Hope this helps! It is used to treat asthma in patients 4 years of age and older.

Flovent????
how long do asthma medications stay in your system ie albuterol and flovent hfa??? Asked by Nannette Jimmerson 1 year ago.

Some inhalers have medication that works differently on the respiratory system than others. for example, albuterol is primarily used as a rescue inhaler as it works much quicker to open airways (bronchodialator) its peak relief occurs within 15 minutes of use and slowly tapers off after that. it is not recommended to use closer than 4 hours apart, it can be repeated if needed (follow your Dr's advice on frequency) the other...Flovent is an inhaled steroid. these medications do little if anything when you are in need as their peak performance occurs an hour or so after used and slowly tapers off over 12 hours. this type of inhaler reduces inflammation of the airways. both medications have their place in the treatment of asthma and other respiratory diseases, but must be used as part of the whole treatment. the steroids should be taken every 12 hours (be sure to rinse your mouth after use of this type of inhaler to prevent a type of yeast infection in the mouth called 'thrush"). ask your pharmacist when in doubt, he (or she) specialize in knowing medications and can explain side effects ect. Answered by Lisha Okolo 1 year ago.

Albuterol is a short acting bronchodilator and works for 4 to 6 hours. It may stay in your system for a few hours longer without giving you any benefit. Flovent is an inhaled steroid and is supposed to be taken every 12 hours. I have found, from personal experience, that it takes 3 or 4 days for the beneficial effects of the steroid to wear off, from the time when I have stopped taking an inhaled steroid. Please don't try this on yourself. My adventure was what lead my doctor to diagnose me with asthma and almost put me in respiratory failure. Medications often stay in your system for longer than they are effective. Once the drug has done it's work, it breaks down and is excreted as waste. Answered by Tam Radler 1 year ago.

Some inhalers have medication that works differently on the respiratory system than others. for example, albuterol is primarily used as a rescue inhaler as it works much quicker to open airways (bronchodialator) its peak relief occurs within 15 minutes of use and slowly tapers off after that. it is not recommended to use closer than 4 hours apart, it can be repeated if needed (follow your Dr's advice on frequency) the other...Flovent is an inhaled steroid. these medications do little if anything when you are in need as their peak performance occurs an hour or so after used and slowly tapers off over 12 hours. this type of inhaler reduces inflammation of the airways. both medications have their place in the treatment of asthma and other respiratory diseases, but must be used as part of the whole treatment. the steroids should be taken every 12 hours (be sure to rinse your mouth after use of this type of inhaler to prevent a type of yeast infection in the mouth called 'thrush"). ask your pharmacist when in doubt, he (or she) specialize in knowing medications and can explain side effects ect. Answered by Marquerite Deely 1 year ago.

Albuterol is a short acting bronchodilator and works for 4 to 6 hours. It may stay in your system for a few hours longer without giving you any benefit. Flovent is an inhaled steroid and is supposed to be taken every 12 hours. I have found, from personal experience, that it takes 3 or 4 days for the beneficial effects of the steroid to wear off, from the time when I have stopped taking an inhaled steroid. Please don't try this on yourself. My adventure was what lead my doctor to diagnose me with asthma and almost put me in respiratory failure. Medications often stay in your system for longer than they are effective. Once the drug has done it's work, it breaks down and is excreted as waste. Answered by Teena Chapdelaine 1 year ago.

Asthma...Flovent??? Asked by Lavette Annal 1 year ago.

I used to detail it to Physicians on a regular basis. Flovent is the best inhaled steroid money can buy. Glaxo-Smithkline the maker of Flovent is one of the best pharmaceutical companies in the world. Flovent has been around for many years and their will be no crazy side effects. Don't take my word for it, check with your pharmacist and have them print out the possibilities for side effects. If you have further questions ask the Pharmacist and that way you will have an expert opinion about your medicine. Excellent product. Answered by Mose Allday 1 year ago.

I have Asthma and yes, I do use the Flovent Inhaler and yeah it has side effects but none hasn't happened to me yet.. I think it's completely safe to use.. I've been usin' it for months, almost a year and it really does help prevent an Asthma Attack because I have severe Asthma and its been workin' great. I also take Singulair which is a great allergy preventer. Answered by Stacey String 1 year ago.

No crazy side effects that are not associated with other asthma inhalers. Make sure that if you are taking both Flovent (a bronchodilator) and an anti-inflammatory inhaler, make sure to use the bronchodilator first! This will open the airways to allow the anti-inflammatory to work better. Also, oral fungal (Candida) infections are common with asthma inhalers, so be sure to rinse the mouth out thoroughly after using it! Good luck! Answered by Awilda Lightford 1 year ago.

My 10.5 month old son was diagnosed with croup on Friday. His pedi said to call back Monday morning if he still had a cough and/or fever. He was still coughing so I gave her a call. She had me come in today and now said that he could have rsv, bronchitis, or whooping cough. She prescriped ventolin, flovent, and zithromax. I tried looking around online and couldn't come up with much, but which of these illnesses do these prescriptions actually treat? Answered by Herminia Padgette 1 year ago.

Flovent and ventolin are usually prescribed for asthma however in some cases of severe upper respiratory infections (which include RSV, bronchitis etc.) the doctor may prescribe these meds because they decrease the inflammation of the airway and make it easier for the child to breath. Flovent is an inhaled steroid which decreases swelling of the airway. Ventolin (albuterol) is a beta agonist which reduces spasm of the muscles in the respiratory tract. Answered by Nichole Mcaloon 1 year ago.

And while Zithromax doesn't necessarily treat whooping cough, it reduces the likelihood of it being spread to others. Respiratory syncitial virus is often diagnosed because it is going around in the community. There is a test, but it has to be sent to the lab and there may be a 48 hour turnaround before the results are known. RSV may mimic other common viruses in infants.

Flovent takes a few weeks to kick in, IT IS NOT A FAST ACTING DRUG like albuterol. there is a 500mcg also. but if you have mild asthma you prob do not need it. always keep your alb inhaler handy even after the flovent kicks in, then you can use it for exacerbation asthma attack.

Can a 6 year old taking Flovent and Albuterol still be throwing up phlegm every night from asthma?
This sucks seeing our daughter suffer like this. Maybe a nebulizer and a move to AZ is going to be the solution. Asked by Sook Medlock 1 year ago.

The flovent and albuterol are actually loosening the phlegm that is already in her lungs (this is actually a good thing, i know it is hard to watch and very uncomfotable for her but she needs to get it out of her lungs.). She will continuing coughing up the phlegm until it is gone. You need to determine what is causing her to be congested and talk with the doctor about prevention methods this way the flovent and albuterol won't have anything to loosen up. Answered by Silas Yamasaki 1 year ago.

I am sorry you are going through this right now with you child. My son which is now 15 months old has numerous health problems. I am a Respiratory therapsit, well versed in the diseas process of asthma. one response your bodies airway has during an attack ins inflamation, and from the words out of my professors mouth years ago in school, an inflamed tissue is a leaky tissue. Meaning basicly the asthma is not controled properly if she is still having the "phlegm". What I would recomend is finding a pediatric asthma clinic (or just the local pediatric lung doc). They can do amazing things to help children now. They put my son on singular when he was ab out 4 months old, singular and xopenex for a while in fact. after about a month he was off of the xopenex treatments. Singular is an antiasthma medication that works great. I don't agree with giving children albuterol. Xopenex has less cardiac effects, and gives better relief during an asthma episode (I have seen it hundreds of times in the hospital). Arizona is a good idea, but if you can find what is sparking these attacks, get a lung doc to look at her you will be ok. and a nebulizer is a good thing! they seem to help the little ones more. we live in east tn, the worst for asthmatics! Answered by Margarita Hach 1 year ago.

OK, as an asthma sufferer, I can tell you that flem has nothing to do with asthma. Asthma is from constriction of your bronchial tubes. Moving to AZ seems like a bad idea to me, when I have an attack it is warm steam that helps me open back up. The nebulizer is a good idea. Albuterol is a steriod, it is suppose to open you up, which this is doing. But - you can unclog a drain and it will still be caked with crap. Personally, I would get a new doctor. Answered by Lucy Biviano 1 year ago.

Yes those two meds only help breathing get easier, but they aren't anticold symptoms which often come with asthma. She can take benadryll or some sort of allergy medicine to help get rid of phlem which is a mucus problem not a lung problem. Answered by Nora Munk 1 year ago.

ask your doctor about possibly putting her on Asmanex. I'm on that and i used to wake up every morning wheezing because of phelgm, and it's helped A LOT. Hardly ever wake up like that anymore. I think it's safe for kids, and in my opinion it's safer than Advair, which doctors prescibe a lot. Good Luck, hope she feels better soon! Answered by Tosha Hartkopf 1 year ago.

It is possible but it would be worth mentioning to the pediatrician. It may also be worth checking the child out for cystic fibrosis. A sweat chloride test will help diagnose that. Answered by Maryam Tonas 1 year ago.

No, Flovent would not cause your little girl to gain weight. Steroids have to be taken in a large dosage and over a period of time to cause weight gain. I have used Flovent and developed oral candidiasis which made my breath smell bad. My doctor prescribed a oral rinse that took care of it. Common side affects are Pharyngitis, nasal congestion, sinusitis, runny nose, laryngitis, allergic rhinitis, oral candidiasis, URI's, and headaches. Hopefully she will not be bothered with any of these. Answered by Serita Rascon 1 year ago.

The side effects of Flovent (inhaled steroid) are much milder than if you were taking an oral steroid. Weight gain is possible with Flovent, but is far more common with oral steroids (e.g. Prednisone) But regardless, Flovent most commonly causes: Respiratory tract infection, throat irritation, respiratory tract inflammation, sinus infection, hoarseness, mouth infections, cough, headache, bronchitis The comment about flovent not causing weight gain by the user below is inaccurate, please see www.floventhfa.com for more information.

What is flovent hfa 110 mcg 12gm?
Asked by Jonelle Altro 1 year ago.

Hi, Flovent HFA is an inhalor for asthamtics (and others with bad lung disease) that contains a medicine called fluticasone propionate, which is a synthetic corticosteroid. They are natural substances found in the body that help fight inflammation and reduce (ovr the long-trm) the swelling of the bronchiole trees with in the lung that become narrow and thickened with thick mucus during an asthma attack. It is used in people who have astham that is not reponsive to inhaleld rescure inhalors such as Ventolin. Corticosteroids are used to treat asthma because they reduce airway inflammation. They are not the only corticosteroids to be used for this. They must be taken over time and maintained like that since they take some time to begin to work. If only used every few days for a single puff, then they are not helping and this type of use is useless. Hope this helps! It is used to treat asthma in patients 4 years of age and older. The medicine is available in 3 different strengths, 44 mcg, 110 mcg, or 220 mcg Inhalation Aerosol. Which means eg: 110 micrograms of drug per puff. Answered by Heather Mallicoat 1 year ago.

Flovent is a steroid and is use to prevent and treat airway inflammation. You use it and if nothing happens then its working. What your doc is saying is that if you have inflammation then the flovent will put it out. You continue to use it to prevent more information. If you kept spraying the same area with a fire extinguisher everyday, it is unlikely a fire would ever burn in that spot. So that said, here are some other metaphors for you. It's like insurance, you have it and pay into it and hope nothing bad ever happens. It's like an antivirus program. You have it on your computer to stop infections and if one gets through it will fix it. Similar to owning a guard dog. You have a sign saying "beware of Dog" to stop trespassers.

Flovent and Albuterol are both completely safe during pregnancy. Be sure that your wife lets her OB know that she takes Flovent. It wouldn't be uncommon for her to have to increase her microgram dosage in later pregnancy when baby is big enough to put extra pressure on the lungs. Shortness of breath also increases with pregnancy so make sure to get a refill of albuterol too! : ) Good luck to you both! Answered by Ayana Casales 1 year ago.

It was an ineffective metaphor in my opinion and I'd like for YOU to provide me with a better one. Thanks. Answered by Aracelis Christal 1 year ago.

Flovent is a steroid and is use to prevent and treat airway inflammation. You use it and if nothing happens then its working. What your doc is saying is that if you have inflammation then the flovent will put it out. You continue to use it to prevent more information. If you kept spraying the same area with a fire extinguisher everyday, it is unlikely a fire would ever burn in that spot. So that said, here are some other metaphors for you. It's like insurance, you have it and pay into it and hope nothing bad ever happens. It's like an antivirus program. You have it on your computer to stop infections and if one gets through it will fix it. Similar to owning a guard dog. You have a sign saying "beware of Dog" to stop trespassers. If you have a trespasser come on to your property, then Killer will take care of him. Answered by Dominique Sabaj 1 year ago.


Has Anyone Used Flovent WHile Pregnant?
My wife is currently using the flovent inhaler and we are about to try to have a baby. I was wondering if anyone has been pregnant while using the flovent inhaler? What happened? Asked by Krysten Hudson 1 year ago.

Flovent and Albuterol are both completely safe during pregnancy. Be sure that your wife lets her OB know that she takes Flovent. It wouldn't be uncommon for her to have to increase her microgram dosage in later pregnancy when baby is big enough to put extra pressure on the lungs. Shortness of breath also increases with pregnancy so make sure to get a refill of albuterol too! : ) Good luck to you both! Answered by Luciano Coronado 1 year ago.

flovent is safe during pregnancy I am a Respiratory Therapist in FL so u can definitely trust me good luck and lots of baby dust to you! Answered by Denita Turziano 1 year ago.


Flovent????
how long do asthma medications stay in your system ie albuterol and flovent hfa??? Asked by Elvie Drumheiser 1 year ago.

Some inhalers have medication that works differently on the respiratory system than others. for example, albuterol is primarily used as a rescue inhaler as it works much quicker to open airways (bronchodialator) its peak relief occurs within 15 minutes of use and slowly tapers off after that. it is not recommended to use closer than 4 hours apart, it can be repeated if needed (follow your Dr's advice on frequency) the other...Flovent is an inhaled steroid. these medications do little if anything when you are in need as their peak performance occurs an hour or so after used and slowly tapers off over 12 hours. this type of inhaler reduces inflammation of the airways. both medications have their place in the treatment of asthma and other respiratory diseases, but must be used as part of the whole treatment. the steroids should be taken every 12 hours (be sure to rinse your mouth after use of this type of inhaler to prevent a type of yeast infection in the mouth called 'thrush"). ask your pharmacist when in doubt, he (or she) specialize in knowing medications and can explain side effects ect. Answered by Ollie Cutrell 1 year ago.

Albuterol is a short acting bronchodilator and works for 4 to 6 hours. It may stay in your system for a few hours longer without giving you any benefit. Flovent is an inhaled steroid and is supposed to be taken every 12 hours. I have found, from personal experience, that it takes 3 or 4 days for the beneficial effects of the steroid to wear off, from the time when I have stopped taking an inhaled steroid. Please don't try this on yourself. My adventure was what lead my doctor to diagnose me with asthma and almost put me in respiratory failure. Medications often stay in your system for longer than they are effective. Once the drug has done it's work, it breaks down and is excreted as waste. Answered by Francina Lagares 1 year ago.

7.8 hrs according to an article i just read, flovent is recommnended every 12 hrs. rinse your mouth out after ea. use and preferably brush your teeth. it eats the enamel off your teeth and causes thrush. also all mdi's esp flovent should be given with a spacer.

Has anyone ever taken Flovent for asthma? Just got diagnosed, any crazy side effects?
Asthma...Flovent??? Asked by Raphael Trussell 1 year ago.

I used to detail it to Physicians on a regular basis. Flovent is the best inhaled steroid money can buy. Glaxo-Smithkline the maker of Flovent is one of the best pharmaceutical companies in the world. Flovent has been around for many years and their will be no crazy side effects. Don't take my word for it, check with your pharmacist and have them print out the possibilities for side effects. If you have further questions ask the Pharmacist and that way you will have an expert opinion about your medicine. Excellent product. Answered by Rasheeda Kurtyka 1 year ago.

I have Asthma and yes, I do use the Flovent Inhaler and yeah it has side effects but none hasn't happened to me yet.. I think it's completely safe to use.. I've been usin' it for months, almost a year and it really does help prevent an Asthma Attack because I have severe Asthma and its been workin' great. I also take Singulair which is a great allergy preventer. Answered by Bernard Mansel 1 year ago.

No crazy side effects that are not associated with other asthma inhalers. Make sure that if you are taking both Flovent (a bronchodilator) and an anti-inflammatory inhaler, make sure to use the bronchodilator first! This will open the airways to allow the anti-inflammatory to work better. Also, oral fungal (Candida) infections are common with asthma inhalers, so be sure to rinse the mouth out thoroughly after using it! Good luck! Answered by Renee Childers 1 year ago.

just like any other drug it can affect you different .you may have an allergy to something in it or you may not.ask your doctor what medication is best for you and the side effects.I have used flovent and others for my asthma nothing weird happened to me. Answered by Rosette Herder 1 year ago.

My 10.5 month old son was diagnosed with croup on Friday. His pedi said to call back Monday morning if he still had a cough and/or fever. He was still coughing so I gave her a call. She had me come in today and now said that he could have rsv, bronchitis, or whooping cough. She prescriped ventolin, flovent, and zithromax. I tried looking around online and couldn't come up with much, but which of these illnesses do these prescriptions actually treat? Answered by Lavette Norred 1 year ago.

Flovent and ventolin are usually prescribed for asthma however in some cases of severe upper respiratory infections (which include RSV, bronchitis etc.) the doctor may prescribe these meds because they decrease the inflammation of the airway and make it easier for the child to breath. Flovent is an inhaled steroid which decreases swelling of the airway. Ventolin (albuterol) is a beta agonist which reduces spasm of the muscles in the respiratory tract. Answered by Cinderella Wittenberg 1 year ago.

And while Zithromax doesn't necessarily treat whooping cough, it reduces the likelihood of it being spread to others. Respiratory syncitial virus is often diagnosed because it is going around in the community. There is a test, but it has to be sent to the lab and there may be a 48 hour turnaround before the results are known. RSV may mimic other common viruses in infants.

I once suffered from Chronic Bronchitis. I would suffer sometimes 3 to 4 times per year! Usually when there was a major change in the pressure outside (I live in the north, and the temperature spikes and dips do wonders to chronic sufferers of bronchitis!). Each time I would get horrible hacking coughs, hoarking up green phlegm..it was so frustrating! The key to getting rid of your bronchitis is to find a way to completely eliminate the germs that are causing all the phlegm and irritation leading to your hoarking cough and heavy breathing.

I am on Flovent 250mcg diskus it is not working. Am I on the right dose? Is it too high.?
I have mild asthma and normal spriometry, but I am still using my albuterol daily. Asked by Sherrell Anteby 1 year ago.

Flovent takes a few weeks to kick in, IT IS NOT A FAST ACTING DRUG like albuterol. there is a 500mcg also. but if you have mild asthma you prob do not need it. always keep your alb inhaler handy even after the flovent kicks in, then you can use it for exacerbation asthma attack. Flovent WILL NOT help then....just want to make this clear. Answered by Elissa Delson 1 year ago.


Can a 6 year old taking Flovent and Albuterol still be throwing up phlegm every night from asthma?
This sucks seeing our daughter suffer like this. Maybe a nebulizer and a move to AZ is going to be the solution. Asked by Jacinto Jennrich 1 year ago.

The flovent and albuterol are actually loosening the phlegm that is already in her lungs (this is actually a good thing, i know it is hard to watch and very uncomfotable for her but she needs to get it out of her lungs.). She will continuing coughing up the phlegm until it is gone. You need to determine what is causing her to be congested and talk with the doctor about prevention methods this way the flovent and albuterol won't have anything to loosen up. Answered by Glory Schloop 1 year ago.

I am sorry you are going through this right now with you child. My son which is now 15 months old has numerous health problems. I am a Respiratory therapsit, well versed in the diseas process of asthma. one response your bodies airway has during an attack ins inflamation, and from the words out of my professors mouth years ago in school, an inflamed tissue is a leaky tissue. Meaning basicly the asthma is not controled properly if she is still having the "phlegm". What I would recomend is finding a pediatric asthma clinic (or just the local pediatric lung doc). They can do amazing things to help children now. They put my son on singular when he was ab out 4 months old, singular and xopenex for a while in fact. after about a month he was off of the xopenex treatments. Singular is an antiasthma medication that works great. I don't agree with giving children albuterol. Xopenex has less cardiac effects, and gives better relief during an asthma episode (I have seen it hundreds of times in the hospital). Arizona is a good idea, but if you can find what is sparking these attacks, get a lung doc to look at her you will be ok. and a nebulizer is a good thing! they seem to help the little ones more. we live in east tn, the worst for asthmatics! Answered by Elaina Goos 1 year ago.

OK, as an asthma sufferer, I can tell you that flem has nothing to do with asthma. Asthma is from constriction of your bronchial tubes. Moving to AZ seems like a bad idea to me, when I have an attack it is warm steam that helps me open back up. The nebulizer is a good idea. Albuterol is a steriod, it is suppose to open you up, which this is doing. But - you can unclog a drain and it will still be caked with crap. Personally, I would get a new doctor. Answered by Hermelinda Lecomte 1 year ago.

Yes those two meds only help breathing get easier, but they aren't anticold symptoms which often come with asthma. She can take benadryll or some sort of allergy medicine to help get rid of phlem which is a mucus problem not a lung problem. Answered by Willow Kapetanos 1 year ago.

ask your doctor about possibly putting her on Asmanex. I'm on that and i used to wake up every morning wheezing because of phelgm, and it's helped A LOT. Hardly ever wake up like that anymore. I think it's safe for kids, and in my opinion it's safer than Advair, which doctors prescibe a lot. Good Luck, hope she feels better soon! Answered by Donnell Kleiboeker 1 year ago.

It is possible but it would be worth mentioning to the pediatrician. It may also be worth checking the child out for cystic fibrosis. A sweat chloride test will help diagnose that. Answered by Nanette Bierle 1 year ago.


Does flovent HFA is steriod?
I am asthmatic-If I take steriod my face swells and I also gain weight. I am taking flovent HFA 220 mcg inhaler? can you please tell me whether this has steriod and make one gain weight? Aslo please tell me if albuterol inhaler has steriod in it? did anybody gained weight after using flovent? thankyou Asked by Georgie Mcspadden 1 year ago.

Flovent is not the same as albuterol. Albuterol is a bronchodilator. Flovent is a corticosteroid. It is not the same as the steroids that are used for muscle building. Yes corticosteroids are known to cause people to gain weight but those effects are very very minimal. Not everyone encounters this side effect from it but a few do.
