Reviews for Flovent HFA

Bean · Taken for 5 to 10 years November 1, 2019

For Asthma, Maintenance: “I've been on Flovent for a number of years, & it is the only asthma medicine that has ever worked for me. I am now 73, & have had asthma since my late 30's. I had tried many treatments, & had to use my rescue inhaler quite often, but after being on Flovent, I now only have to do 1 puff every other day for maintenence. The only side affect has been a scratchy throat & phlegm in the mornings, & it has affected my voice a bit. But that is worth it, being able to breathe!”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “My son was diagnosed with asthma at 5 years old. It has gotten worse as he's aged. Within the last 2 years, peaking. I was giving him Albuterol up to 4 times a day, a day when he got sick, we were in the E. R often. Finally we got a new pediatric doc, and they prescribed Flovent. This drug is great. My son now only uses his rescue Inhaler when he has a lot of chest congestion. The Flovent allows him to run, play, and go all day without Albuterol! So glad we found it. And no side effects at all.”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “The drug works very well for the asthma but the side effects are overwhelming. I experience severe anger and aggression and must stop the medication. I have attempted to take the medication on several occasions due to necessity with serious asthma but continue to have the same side effects.”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “I have COPD and CHF. Combined they left me unable to walk more than a couple hundred meters without stopping to catch my breath and recharge my weak legs. After starting Flovent I notice a marked improvement in my overall stamina. Works well for me.”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “My son has taken this medication for asthma maintenance for nearly 4 years. When he takes it consistently, he has very few asthma exacerbations. Before he was on it, he had to be hospitalized due to a severe attack and status asthmaticus. When he missed it for a few days, he had another exacerbation requiring emergency treatment. I'd say the medicine is effective for him. He has had no side effects.”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “I had been wheezing for a while, went to ER, was treated for Upper Respiratory Infection. About a month later wheezing started again my Doctor sent me to asthma specialist who put me on Albuterol, later had to be taken off. I've been through so much in the last year. One of my doctors put me on flovent about two weeks ago, I couldn't sleep for wheezing and coughing. After a couple of days on flovent I notice I wasn't coughing or wheezing anymore, I feel a lot better, I think its because of the carpet in my apartment, so did my Doctor.”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “I have been having a rough few months with my asthma needing my rescue inhaler 6+ times a day, I gave in to taking a steroid asthma medication, the 2nd day after I started this my lungs started burning and I started coughing hard like I have bronchitis, the 3rd day it was worse, I stopped taking it and after 2 days off I am feeling better. One of the side effects is causing an upper respiratory infection, well that happened rather quickly for me.”

For Asthma, Maintenance: “Have had asthma all my life. Asthma specialist had me on Qvar and felt great. Insurance stopped paying and was put on Flovent. Lungs went down hill in a week. Sore chest, wheezing, coughing on and off all day and throat was sore, lung function test way down. Year later insurance changed and was put back on Qvar. Symptoms are gone and lung function up and almost normal!! Thank god!”
