It prevents breathlessness and works to reduce the number of sudden attacks.
It is an active ingredient medication that helps to keep the airways open in the lungs. This makes it easier for air to flow in and out and allows for normal breathing. Corticosteroids, which help reduce swelling and irritation, are also included in the medication.
Before you start taking this medication, your doctor or nurse will show you how to use the inhaler properly. The Flutiform inhaler is made of a plastic container inside a case that has a mouthpiece and a canister. There is also a dose indicator at the front that tells you how many puffs are left.
Stand or sit straight up to administer the dose. Take off the mouthpiece cover and shake it well. Then, exhale as far as you feel comfortable. Place the inhaler between your teeth, without biting down. Close your lips around it. To release the medicine, you will need to inhale deeply and slowly. After holding your breath for a few seconds, take the inhaler out of your mouth and slowly exhale. You should wait for a few seconds before you take another puff. After that, replace the cover of the mouthpiece.
After using the medication, wash your mouth and brush your teeth. The residual medication can cause a strange taste or even thrush.
Two puffs twice daily are the recommended dosage, spaced out evenly. Children over 5 years old can use this medicine, but they should be given the lowest strength inhaler. The medium strength inhaler should only be used by those older than 12 years. Adults can use the strongest strength of this medicine. Follow the instructions of your doctor. Don't change the dose unless you are told otherwise.
The dose indicator counts down each time you use your inhaler. If the numbers drop, it is time to visit your doctor for a replacement.
You should not forget to take your Flutiform. However, skip the missed dose and go straight to the next one. Do not double your dose to make up the one you missed.
You should not take more Flutiform than you are allowed to. Contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately. Overdose can cause your heart to beat faster, make you dizzy, weaker, or give you headaches.
