You are buying 1x Flutiform Inhaler 125 micrograms/5 micrograms to control your asthma symptoms and prevent asthma attacks - Each inhaler contains 120 actuations (puffs)
FLUTIFORM inhaler contains two different medicines called fluticasone propionate and eformoterol fumarate dihydrate.
Fluticasone propionate belongs to a group of medicines known as corticosteroids, frequently called 'steroids'. They are not 'anabolic steroids' which are sometimes misused by athletes. Corticosteroids help to reduce swelling and inflammation in the lungs.
Eformoterol fumarate dihydrate belongs to a group of medicines known as long-acting beta-2-agonists. Beta-2-agonists help the airways in your lungs to stay open, making it easier for you to breathe.
When used together regularly, fluticasone propionate and eformoterol fumarate dihydrate help to control your asthma symptoms and prevent asthma attacks. FLUTIFORM inhaler is known as a 'preventer'. It does not work if you are already having an asthma attack, i.e. you are already wheezing and breathless. You will need to use a fast acting 'reliever' medicine if this happens.
FLUTIFORM® inhalers are pressurised metered-dose inhalers. The inhalers are small canisters containing a white to off-white liquid suspension fitted with a metering valve. The canisters are inserted into plastic dispensers (actuators) fitted with a dust cap and a dose indicator which indicates the number of doses remaining. Each inhaler contains 120 actuations (puffs).
They are available in three strengths:
- 50 micrograms/5 micrograms
- 125 micrograms/5 micrograms
- 250 micrograms/10 micrograms.
FLUTIFORM inhaler is not recommended for use in children under 12 years.
It is very important that you use your FLUTIFORM inhaler every day, twice a day (morning and night). This will help prevent asthma symptoms throughout the day and night.
You must use your FLUTIFORM inhaler every day (twice a day).
Do not stop using it, even if you feel better, unless your doctor tells you.
