Conditions treated by fluticasone
Fluticasone is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids. It is primarily used as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant agent. Fluticasone is commonly prescribed for the treatment of various conditions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis (hay fever), and nasal polyps. It may also be prescribed for certain skin disorders, such as eczema.
How does fluticasone work?
Fluticasone is a corticosteroid medication that works by reducing inflammation in the body. It helps to relieve symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis and asthma by decreasing the swelling and irritation in the airways and nasal passages.
In the form of a nasal spray, fluticasone helps to alleviate allergy symptoms of allergic rhinitis, including nasal congestion, sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, and sinus pressure. It works by reducing inflammation in the nasal passages, thereby relieving these symptoms.
Fluticasone is also available in an inhalation form for the treatment of asthma. By reducing inflammation in the airways, it helps to prevent and control asthma symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing. It is typically used as a long-term maintenance medication to manage asthma and may be combined with other asthma medications if necessary.
Forms of fluticasone available
Fluticasone is available in various forms, including intranasal, inhaled and topical preparations.
Dosage of fluticasone
The dosage of fluticasone may vary depending on the specific condition being treated and the form of the medication. It is important to follow the recommended dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider.
If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double doses.
Directions for fluticasone use
Fluticasone should be used exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The specific instructions may include the frequency of use, proper administration technique, and any necessary precautions.
The specific instructions for taking fluticasone may vary depending on the form and the condition being treated, but here are some general guidelines:
- If you are using fluticasone nasal spray for allergic rhinitis, the usual recommended dose for adults and children over the age of 4 is usually one or two sprays in each nostril once daily. However, it’s always best to follow the specific instructions provided by your doctor or pharmacist. Before using the nasal spray, shake the bottle gently, remove the cap, and prime the pump by spraying it a few times into the air until a fine mist is seen. Then, tilt your head slightly forward, insert the nozzle into one nostril, and press down on the pump while breathing in through your nose. Repeat the process for the other nostril
- Inhaler: When using fluticasone inhalers for asthma, it is important to follow the prescribed dosage and administration technique provided by your healthcare professional. Typically, the inhaler is used on a regular schedule, usually once or twice a day, as directed by your doctor. Before using the inhaler, shake it well, breathe out fully, place the mouthpiece between your teeth without biting it, and close your lips around it. Then, inhale deeply and forcefully through your mouth, pressing down on the canister to release a dose of medication. Hold your breath for a few seconds, remove the inhaler from your mouth, and exhale slowly. Remember to rinse your mouth with water and spit it out after each use to prevent any potential side effects such as oral thrush
- Cream: If you are using fluticasone cream for skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, it is important to apply it as directed by your healthcare professional. Wash and dry the affected area before applying a thin layer of cream, gently rubbing it in until it is absorbed. Avoid applying the cream to open wounds or broken skin. Wash your hands thoroughly after application
Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and away from excess light, heat and moisture (not in the bathroom).
Warnings and precautions for fluticasone
- Fluticasone may have certain risks and potential side effects. Discussing these with a healthcare provider before starting the medication is important
- Fluticasone may interact with other medications, so it is important to inform a healthcare professional about all the medications being taken; prescription and nonprescription medications, over-the-counter (OTC) medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products
Use of fluticasone if pregnant or planning pregnancy
The use of fluticasone during pregnancy should be discussed with a healthcare provider. The potential benefits and risks should be evaluated on an individual basis.
Possible side effects of fluticasone
Common side effects of taking fluticasone nasal spray include:
- Dryness or irritation: Some individuals may experience dryness or irritation in the nose, throat, or mouth. This can lead to discomfort, a sore throat, or a hoarse voice. Rinsing the mouth after using the nasal spray may help alleviate these symptoms
- Nosebleeds: Fluticasone can cause occasional nosebleeds, especially if the nasal spray is not used correctly. Proper techniques, like directing the spray away from the nasal septum, can reduce the risk of nosebleeds
Less common, but more serious side effects of fluticasone include:
- Allergic reactions: Although rare, some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to fluticasone. Signs of an allergic reaction can include hives, itching, rash, swelling (especially of the face or throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing, or a fast heartbeat. If any of these symptoms occur, seek immediate medical attention
- Glaucoma: Fluticasone can increase the pressure in the eyes, potentially leading to glaucoma. This is more likely to occur in individuals with a family history of glaucoma. Regular eye exams should be scheduled for those using fluticasone long-term, to monitor eye health
- Cataracts: Prolonged use of fluticasone can increase the risk of developing cataracts, which is a clouding of the lens in the eye. Regular eye exams are important to detect any changes in vision or the development of cataracts
- Adrenal suppression: Fluticasone can suppress the production of natural steroids in the body, leading to adrenal suppression. This can result in symptoms such as weakness, fatigue, weight loss, nausea, and low blood pressure. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage and consult a healthcare professional before stopping or changing the medication
- Growth suppression in children: Long-term use of inhaled corticosteroids in children may potentially affect their growth. Regular monitoring of height and weight is recommended for children using fluticasone long-term
