Hello, I have an allergic asthmatic reaction, just when Im practicing sports. I practice athletics specially 10 km races, I have been taking inhaled corticosteroids like, fluticasone, beclomethasone, budesonide, to prevent asthma, but after one or two doses, I get a high blood pressure condition, My question is, if the high blood pressure effect, is an effect of any kind of cortiscosteroids, or if there is a type of inhaled corticosteroid, which has the characteristic of, no having a high blood pressure effect, or, if every type of corticosteroid has that effect, which could be the better corticosteroid, one with a lower risk of high blood pressure, or, a more appropiate blood pressure reaction. I appreciate your attention and helpful ideas.

High blood pressure as a result of inhaled steroids is not common. It is more likely to occur from oral steroids.
However you are obviously very susceptible.
All inhaled steroids have the same potential side effects.
You are going to have to try the different inhaled steroids individually to see if you can find a particular steroid that does not affect your blood pressure.
Try using the lowest effective dose possible.

I can only answer based on my own personal experience. I do have bp problems with fluticasone. I do much better on
The other inhaled anti-inflammatory meeds (ie advair and alvesco). You might
Be able to tolerate a lower level, like advair 250/50 with good efficacy and min increase in bp, rather than the 500/50.
The best advise is talk with your doctor, there are always new meeds coming out & it just may mean working together to find what works for you.
