Description

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.

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.
