What is the Flovent HFA Inhaler?

The Flovent HFA inhaler belongs to the classification of medicines known as inhaled corticosteroids. HFA stands for high frequency aerosol, which is a propulsion system that replaced the now banned CFCs, which negatively impact the environment.

Flovent is commonly prescribed to prevent asthma attacks and reduce asthma symptoms. When your body senses danger, your immune response kicks in and certain chemicals are sent out to battle the intruder. This action causes inflammation that can restrict breathing. Allergens such as pet dander, dust, pollen, air pollution, and changes in the weather can bring on an asthma attack and lead to breathing difficulties. The Flovent inhaler delivers a metered dose of the active ingredient Fluticasone directly into the lungs, where it inhibits your body's immune system response, thereby reducing the inflammation process.

You may also buy Flovent inhaler under its generic name, Fluticasone Inhaler. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions treated by the Flovent HFA Inhaler

The Flovent inhaler is designed for use in adults and children four years of age and older to control the severity and frequency of asthma attacks.

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows airways. While asthma can affect people of any age, it most often starts in children. In fact more than 25 million people in the U.S. have asthma, 7 million of whom are children. Coughing and wheezing are the primary symptoms and can be frightening for a young child. Using a Flovent inhaler can help prevent asthma occurrences.

What to know before using the Flovent HFA Inhaler

  • Tell your doctor about any existing conditions you have, especially bacterial, fungal, or viral infections, tuberculosis, liver disease, or a weakened immune system. This is important because the active ingredient in the Flovent inhaler can suppress your immune system.

  • Ask your doctor if there are any risks associated with using brand name or Flovent generic inhaler while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

  • Inform your doctor of any medications you take, including non-prescription medication, vitamins, and supplements.

  • Talk to your doctor before you stop, start, or change the dosage of any of your medications while using Flovent inhaler, as these changes may increase the risk of Fluticasone side effects.

  • Flovent does not work quickly and does not stop an asthma attack in progress so you should have a rescue inhaler with you at all times.

  • Let your physician know if you experience any Flovent HFA inhaler side effects.
