The Flixotide treatment usually improves breathing within three to seven days. Even if your asthma symptoms are improving, it is important to continue using the Flixotide Inhaler. It will help prevent breathing problems from returning.
The adrenal glands naturally produce corticosteroids. They play a key role in controlling inflammation. These natural hormones can be synthesised into a man-made derivative called Beclometasone. It reduces inflammation in the lungs. Although corticosteroids are often called steroids, they are not the same as anabolic steroids which are sometimes abused by athletes and bodybuilders.
Breathing in beclometasone stops the release of chemicals that can cause inflammation and immune reactions. Beclometasone stops the release of chemicals in the lungs. It reduces inflammation and makes it harder for air to flow in and out. Regular beclometasone use helps prevent asthma attacks and wheezing.
You should use a Flixotide inhaler and a reliever inhaler simultaneously.
You need to know how to use your inhaler correctly. You will not be able to breathe the correct amount of medicine into your lungs if you do not follow these instructions. Use the information leaflet included with your inhaler to ensure that you follow the correct instructions.
Flixotide is a dry powder inhaler. It comes pre-loaded, with blisters that contain individual doses of the medication. When you need to inhale, slide the lever. Slide the lever to open a blister and allow you to inhale. To inhale fully, you will need to open the mouthpiece of the inhaler and inhale slowly and deeply.
After each use of Flixotide, rinse your mouth with water and brush your teeth. It will reduce the risk of developing oral thrush (a fungal infection) in your mouth. Inhaled corticosteroids could also be linked to oral thrush. If you have white spots on your throat or mouth, consult your doctor. These are signs of thrush.
