FLUTICASONE-ORAL AEROSOL INHALER, Flovent
GENERIC NAME: FLUTICASONE - ORAL AEROSOL INHALER (flew-TICK-uh-sown)
BRAND NAME(S): Flovent
USES: Fluticasone is a corticosteroid that works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the swelling and inflammation of the airways. This medication must be used regularly to prevent the wheezing and shortness of breath caused by asthma, bronchitis, or some types of emphysema. This medication does not work immediately. Therefore, it is not used to relieve an acute asthma attack. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (e.g., albuterol, salbutamol) as prescribed.
