Alvesco Description

Alvesco is a man-made corticosteroid medication that is administered through an inhaler to prevent and reduce the symptoms of asthma. Ciclesonide, the active ingredient in Alvesco works by reducing the swelling of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier and prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. Alvesco may be prescribed along with other asthma medications, such as bronchodilators or corticosteroids that are taken by mouth.

Conditions Treated by Alvesco

Alvesco is used in the prevention and treatment of asthma and may also be prescribed to treat severe chronic obstructed lung disease.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a progressive lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe affects more than 12 million people in the US and is the fourth leading cause of death. The most common cause of COPD is smoking.

Warnings for Alvesco

Alvesco must be used regularly every day to obtain the maximum benefits. While you might feel this medication starting to work within 24 hours, it will likely take several weeks before the full benefit of Alvesco takes effect.

Alvesco will not work fast enough to treat an asthma attack. A fast acting inhalation medicine should be used for an asthma attack. Steroid medication can weaken your immune system, making it easier for you to get an infection.
