... heard you can get a yeast infection if you do not rinse your mouth. I wonder why no such warning is ever mentioned
Xopenex - On any of the inhalers there is no mention of rinsing your mouth after inhaling. I have?

Added 20 Aug 2012:
My sputum indicated I have a yeast infection in my esophogus. It is not in my mouth. I have rinsed after each usage of inhalers as my doctor instructed. But with everything I have read here there is no warning of thrush nor rinsing mouth. Has anyone else experienced this?
There is a risk of developing oral thrush with inhaled corticosteroids.
To avoid this your health professional should recommend that you gargle and rinse your mouth out with water after every dose.
Xopenex is not a corticosteroid and does not carry this risk.
Are you using a corticosteroid inhaler which could be responsible eg. Flovent, Qvar?
