Description

Flutiform for Asthma & Breathing Problems

Asthma is a common lung condition that can cause a range of breathing difficulties that happen randomly or after exposure to a trigger. Triggers may include common allergies to pollen or animal dander, infections, environmental changes or from exercise.

Flutiform is a pressurised inhaler used to treat the symptoms of asthma. This is a preventer inhaler that should be used every day to help you not become breathless or wheezy.


What is Flutiform and how does it work?

The two active ingredients, fluticasone propionate and formoterol fumarate dihydrate work together to improve breathing by reducing swelling and inflammation in the lungs. Fluticasone propionate is a steroid medication that can reduce the swelling and inflammation in the lungs, while formoterol fumarate dihydrate is a long-acting bronchodilator that helps to keep the airways open to improve breathing.

The recommended starting dose for adults is two inhalations (125/5) twice a day, however, in presence of other factors, this may be increased or decreased accordingly as per the prescriber's clinical judgement. 

For adults with asthma:

  • The usual dose is two inhalations twice a day, that is two puffs (actuations) in the morning and two in the evening.

Instructions:

  • Unscrew the mouthpiece and check that it is free from dust

  • Sit or stand upright, hold your inhaler upright and breathe out as far as is comfortable and as slowly and deeply as possible
  • Put the mouthpiece in your mouth but do not bite the mouthpiece
  • Breathe in slowly and deeply through your mouth and at the same time, press down on the aerosol can to release one puff
