Generic Flutiform (Fluticasone and Formoterol 125 mcg) guide:
What is the preparation marketed as Flutiform?
Flutiform is a brand name registered for a combination inhaler based on two main ingredients - Fluticasone and Formoterol. This inhaler is primarily used for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The same medication can be found under other names because the formula is no longer protected by a patent and can be used by different drug producers. Therefore, if your healthcare provider recommends you to buy Flutiform, you can buy a so-called generic of the medication instead to save your money.
The effect of the medication is due to a combined action of the two main ingredients. Fluticasone is a glucocorticosteroid that when inhaled renders an anti-inflammatory action leading to the reduction of symptoms of asthma, emphysema, and obstructive pulmonary disease. In a long-term use, it substantially reduces the number of acute episodes and intensity of the attacks. However, the maximum effect of the substance develops only 24 hours after the inhalation and the therapeutic effect that can be expected throughout the therapy is developed in 1-2 weeks of the inhaler use.
Formoterol is a selective agonist of bets2- adrenergic receptors. It renders bronchi-dilating effect within moments after the inhalator use and acts for twelve hours. It also prevents the inflammatory reaction and release of allergic mediators preventing the allergic swelling and accumulation of inflamed cells. It prevents the occurrence of the bronchospasm caused by the allergens, physical exercising, cold air, and so on. Considering that it acts for twelve hours, it can be used two times a day for an optimal effect and substantial improvement of the life quality of people with the conditions that are associated with spasms of bronchi.
