What is Flovent?
Flomist is one of the advertised brand names for the anti-allergy nasal spray with the active ingredient Fluticasone. It is also sold under other brand names and less known trade names as a generic medication. Other pharmaceutical companies cannot use the same name but they are able to make the medicine using the same formula since the exclusive right to make and market the medicine by the developer of the formula has already expired.
The active substance of the medication is used not only for rhinitis. In a form of inhaler, it is also used for the therapy of asthma, obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic bronchitis, and other conditions in which a bronchospasm can develop. In a form of a nasal spray, the active substance is used to relieve the signs of rhinitis caused by a response of an organism to an allergen. Before you buy Flovent nasal spray and especially if you choose to purchase a generic version of the medication, clarify with your healthcare provider what formulation is needed for your condition treatment. You can also consult our pharmacists if you don’t see the needed formulation in our range of products and they will gladly help you.
Fluticasone is characterized by high selectivity and affinity for glucocorticosteroids receptors. It inhibits the spread of mast cells, eosinophils, lymphocytes, macrophages, neutrophils through propagation cell division. It also inhibits the production of the inflammation mediators in a delayed allergic reaction.
The amount of Fluticasone that is active within the body at ingestion is insignificant due to a very low level of absorption in the gastrointestinal tract and intensive metabolism during the first passage through the liver. It ensures a low level of systemic exposure in accidental swallowing of the inhalator's active substance. In the local use of therapeutic doses, no systemic effect and oppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system had been observed during the tests. The medication does not cause hormonal imbalance or has a substantial effect on the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular, and respiratory system.
Used in a form of an inhaler, it has a potent anti-inflammatory effect, which leads to a minimization of the severity of symptoms and a reduction of the frequency of exacerbations of diseases accompanied by airway obstruction (bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema). When you use nasal spray, it has a lower dosage and is administered differently which is why it is unsuitable for these conditions even though it acts the same. Use nasal spray only for the symptoms related to the nasal breathing.
For the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the medication is very effective in a combination with long-acting bronchodilators.
The therapeutic effect after the administration of inhaler develops within 24 hours and reaches its peak within one-two weeks after the therapy start.
What is the medication sold as Generic Flovent and why is it cheaper?
The generic version of the medication is the first choice for people from the developing countries since the generics are produced and marketed with the encouragement of the World Health Organization mainly to make all essential medications affordable and available in the developing world. However, if you live, for example, in the U.S. or the UK, you can still enjoy the benefits of generics use if you buy Generic Flovent online. In fact, generic medications currently can be also found at the regular drugstores in the developed countries but all medications there are highly overpriced hence it is more beneficial to order the medication from abroad. You should not be turned off by its lower price. First of all, the production of the medication is not that expensive. The high price of the branded medication isn’t justified by its exclusive quality or effectiveness but simply the decision of the drug maker to set such high margins.
All generic medications before they are available on the shelves of the drugstores are comprehensively tested and analyzed. If they do not correspond to the internationally accepted standards of quality, effectiveness, and the correspondence with the original formula, they wouldn’t be allowed into the market. Therefore, when you buy Generic Fluticasone nasal spray from a reputable drugstore, you can be sure that you will enjoy absolutely the same effect as from the branded medication use as they are identical.
When should you buy Generic Flovent?
Before you purchase any inhaler, you must consult s a physician first. There are multiple inhalers that are used in asthma, COPD, bronchitis, and so on. They differ by the time of effect, the time it takes for the effect to start, and so on. Some of the inhalers are used in an acute episode of bronchi obstruction while others are used as a prophylaxis or a maintenance measure to avoid exacerbations. Flovent and its generics aren’t used in acute episodes but rather for their prevention.
The medication is used in a form of inhalation as a supportive, long-term therapy of bronchial asthma in adults and kids older than one year, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adults as an addition to the main therapy, and chronic bronchitis.
If you need to use nasal spray based on Fluticasone, you probably are diagnosed with allergic rhinitis, i.e. an allergic reaction to pollen, dust, and so on that is manifested in a form of runny, stuffy, swelling nose, itching, and so on.

Besides, the medication should be cautiously used if you suffer from liver cirrhosis, glaucoma, hypothyroidism, infections (bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral), osteoporosis, tuberculosis, during pregnancy or the period of breastfeeding.
There is no sufficient data on the safety of the medication use in women who expect a baby. Therefore, if you are pregnant, you can use the medication only if your therapist believes that the benefit from the inhaler use is greater than the risk to the unborn baby. If you become pregnant while using the inhaler, notify your healthcare provider immediately.

How to use Generic Flovent inhaler and nasal spray?
The medication comes in different dosages per inhalation. Therefore, it crucial to get precise instructions from your healthcare provider how to use the medication and what dosage of the active substance per inhalation you should receive. Besides, you need to get an instruction on how to use the inhaler system as there are different systems – simple inhaler, discus or powder for inhalations. The dosage is selected strictly individually based on the severity of symptoms and age of the patient which is why we do not provide any recommendation here. When you plan to order Flovent, make sure to clarify with our pharmacists that you purchase the right formulation and dosing that corresponds to your doctor’s instructions.
Besides, if you use any other medications, you must inform your doctor about them and ask whether they are compatible with the inhaler use.
Nasal spray is used as any other nasal spray, i.e. you should apply it in each nostril and inhale while you spray the active substance. The dosage is usually one spraying per nostril once a day but if your doctor tells you otherwise, follow his recommendations.
Precautions while using the inhaler and/or nasal spray
In the long-term therapy with any glucocorticosteroids especially in the high doses, the systemic negative effects can develop. Although their likelihood is lower in the use of inhaler than in the use of oral medications, they still can develop. These negative symptoms and conditions are Cushing syndrome, Cushing syndrome-like symptoms, oppression of the adrenal gland function, lowered bone density, growth inhibition in children and adolescents, cataracts, glaucoma, psychological or behavioral effects, including hyperactivity, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression or aggression (especially in children ). Namely because of these reasons it is important to reduce the dosage of the inhalation till the minimum effective one once the therapeutic effect had been achieved.
It is highly advised to monitor the child’s growth if a child receives therapy with glucocorticosteroids. In any inhibition of growth, you should immediately inform your doctor and ask him or her to revise the therapy.
If during the therapy with the inhaler you feel the need of more frequent fast-acting inhalers as the number of acute episodes increased, it means that the therapy is ineffective and should be revised by a doctor. Nevertheless, you should not abruptly stop using the inhaler when the optimal replacement therapy isn’t chosen yet.
