I just started using flovent. Find it very effective in preventing broncospasms.Can i continually use this medication for this purpose a long time?
For how long can I use Flovent?
I was prescribed Flovent, Ipratropium solution and Singulair on a daily basis? Is this overdoing it? The Albuterol solution and Ventolin when necessary.Added 3 May 2014:
I was also prescribed prednisone 20 mg for 15 days to break the cycle? Is this OK?
Yes, you can use Flovent long term. It works best as a preventative when used regularly.
Fluticasone is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. Fluticasone inhalation is used to prevent asthma attacks. It will not treat an asthma attack that has already begun.
