Flixotide Accuhaler for Asthma & Breathing Problems

Asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are breathing conditions that primarily affect the lungs and can cause a range of breathing difficulties. Asthma often occurs after exposure to a trigger, however, it can happen randomly. Triggers may include common allergies to pollen or animal dander, infections, environmental changes or from exercise.

The Flixotide Accuhaler is an inhaler device used to help prevent asthma attacks from occurring. This is a preventer inhaler suitable for daily use and should not be used in cases of sudden asthma attacks.

What is a Flixotide Accuhaler and how does it work?

Flixotide Accuhaler contains the active ingredient fluticasone propionate which is a corticosteroid. This type of medicine has an anti-inflammatory action which reduces swelling and irritation in the lungs. This inhaler provides a small dose of steroid medication to your lungs when inhaled.

If you are diagnosed with asthma, COPD or other breathing condition, you may be prescribed a Flixotide Accuhaler by a doctor or healthcare professional. However, it may not be suitable for you if you have the following:

  • If you are allergic to any other ingredients in this medicine
  • If you have (or have had) Tuberculosis or other lung infections
  • If you are taking steroids to treat asthma

How to use a Flixotide Accuhaler?

Always use a Flixotide Accuhaler exactly as prescribed by your doctor or advised by the pharmacist. The recommended starting dose for adults is 100 micrograms twice a day to treat asthma, however, in presence of other factors, this may be increased or decreased accordingly as per the prescriber's clinical judgement. 

For adults:

  • For mild asthma - The usual starting dose is 100 micrograms twice a day. 
  • For moderate to severe asthma - The usual starting dose is 250 to 500 micrograms twice a day
  • The most taken should be 1000 micrograms twice a day.


  • Stand or sit upright and start to breathe as slowly as possible right before using your inhaler
  • Remove the cover and shake the inhaler 4 or 5 times 
  • Hold the inhaler upright and breathe out as far as is comfortable. Do not breathe in again yet
  • Put the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth and close your lips. Do not bite
  • Breathe in through your mouth and just after starting to breathe in, press down on the top of the canister to release a puff of medicine. Do this while breathing in steadily and deeply
  • Hold your breathe and take the inhaler from your mouth
  • Continue holding your breath for a few seconds.

Do not use your inhaler more often than the doctor told you to.

Flixotide Asthma Inhaler

What is Flixotide?

Flixotide is an inhaler used to treat and prevent asthma. It contains the active ingredient fluticasone propionate, a type of medicine known as a corticosteroid, which reduces inflammation in the lungs.

How Does Flixotide Work?

Flixotide works by delivering fluticasone propionate into the lungs. The corticosteroid reduces inflammation and swelling of the airways, making it easier to breathe and helping to prevent asthma attacks.

What are the Benefits of Using Flixotide?

The benefits of using Flixotide include a reduction in asthma symptoms and a decreased likelihood of severe asthma attacks. By consistently reducing inflammation in the lungs, Flixotide helps to keep the airways open and improves breathing.

Indications for Flixotide

Flixotide is indicated for the regular treatment of asthma. Its primary function is to prevent asthma attacks, rather than to treat an attack once it has started.

Flixotide Dosage & Usage

How Do I Use Flixotide?

Flixotide inhalers must be used regularly, even when one feels well, to effectively control asthma. It's important to use the inhaler correctly so that the medication is properly delivered to the lungs. Detailed instructions on how to use the inhaler must be provided by a healthcare provider.

Flixotide Dosage

The specific dosage of Flixotide varies depending on the patient's condition and age. For children, the dose might be lower than for adults. Flixotide comes in different strengths, including a 250-microgram dose and a 125-microgram dose.

Flixotide Availability & Pricing

How Do I Buy Flixotide Online?

Flixotide is available to purchase from authorised online pharmacies with a valid prescription from a healthcare provider. Always ensure that the online pharmacy is regulated and reputable to ensure the safety and authenticity of the medication.

Flixotide Side Effects & Considerations

What are the Risks of Flixotide?

As with any medication, Flixotide has potential side effects. Common side effects include sore throat, hoarseness, and oral thrush. More serious but less common side effects include bone thinning (osteoporosis), eye problems (like glaucoma or cataracts), and adrenal suppression.

Precautions/Interactions with Flixotide

Individuals who are allergic to fluticasone propionate or any other ingredients in Flixotide must not use the medication. It's important to tell a doctor about any other medications one is currently taking, as there might be interactions.

Flixotide Alternatives & Related Treatments

Flixotide and Other Treatments

Flixotide is a corticosteroid inhaler, and while it might be compared to combination inhalers like Symbicort or Seretide, they're not the same. Symbicort and Seretide both contain a long-acting bronchodilator alongside a corticosteroid, while Flixotide contains only a corticosteroid.

Is Flixotide Stronger Than Symbicort?

The term "stronger" might be misleading when comparing medications like Flixotide and Symbicort. Each medication serves a specific purpose, and its suitability depends on the individual patient's medical condition and their response to treatment.

Flixotide FAQs

Is Flixotide a Steroid?

Yes, Flixotide contains the corticosteroid fluticasone propionate.

Other Names for Flixotide

Flixotide is known for its active ingredient, fluticasone propionate. In some countries, it is sold under different brand names.

Is Seretide the Same as Flixotide?

No, while both Seretide and Flixotide contain the corticosteroid fluticasone, they are not the same medication. Seretide is a combination inhaler that contains a long-acting bronchodilator called salmeterol, while Flixotide only contains fluticasone.
