What is flovent hfa 110 mcg 12gm?
Asked by Nila Coan 4 months 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 Trinh Sukovich 4 months 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.

how long do asthma medications stay in your system ie albuterol and flovent hfa???
Asked by Fidel Tillinghast 4 months 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 Hugo Sovey 4 months 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 Santo Harshaw 4 months 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.

I stopped taking Flovent HFA four days ago and today I have mild shortness of breath.?
I talked to my doctor today. He tells me the Flovent is not likely the cause. It was swallowed, not inhaled, and Flovent is not as strong as say, Prednisone (spelling?). Also, normal bronchial tubes are already dilated so they're not going to dilate more from Flovent. He says that I may have a touch of asthma...

Does stopping a medication like Flovent abruptly bring about symptoms like shortness of breath? In case it's relevant, I was prescribed the Flovent by an allergist for an esophageal condition (eosinophilic esophagitis). I was to spray it on my tongue, salivate and swallow it to see if that would reduce the symptom of difficulty swallowing - so this wasn't prescribed for asthma. Any answers are greatly appreciated.

Also, normal bronchial tubes are already dilated so they're not going to dilate more from Flovent. He says that I may have a touch of asthma (since I am responding to the Albuterol inhaler) - especially if this happens again and isn't a one-time thing. This might have to do with my allergy to dust mites. Answered by Johnnie Wineinger 4 months ago.
That is an interesting use for Flovent. I'll go out on a limb and guess that the Albuterol was still producing therapeutic results in your breathing and was dilating your airway. Now you are off of if and not getting that extra airway and bronchi dilation. Or maybe it's something else--better call your physician and tell them what's going on. Answered by George Vandixon 4 months ago.
This is probably because your lungs airways were dilated a little bit more than normal. Now that you have stopped, your airways are smaller. Normally when someone is taken off of Corticosteroids, they are weened off, not stopped abruptly. This is probably why you have shortness of breath. It will probably go away with time. You should talk to the doctor that prescribed the medicine to make sure that everything is alright. Answered by Dedra Gargan 4 months ago.

Which is better for copd, flovent or pro air hfa?
Asked by Regena Dronen 4 months ago.
They both are used for copd. Flovent is used daily - as a preventative and pro air hfa is used as a rescue inhaler when the breathing or asthma attack becomes severe. Answered by Elvis Derouen 4 months ago.
They are two different medications. Flovent is a steroid and needs to be taken everyday or it wont work that well. ProAir is a bronchodilator and should be used to open airways during periods of shortness of breath unless otherwise directed by your physician. Some doctors prescribe ProAir for use several times per day. Follow your doctors orders, if you have questions, call him/her or your pharmacist. Answered by Solomon Paske 4 months ago.

It may show a small trace amount steroid in the analysis but if you have a prescription for flovent, you should be fine. It's when you have large amounts of steroid in the analysis that someone may question you. Answered by Marci Sablock 4 months ago.
