Overview

Buy Flixotide Inhaler Online

Flixotide contains Fluticasone propionate, which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids (often just called steroids). A very small dose of steroid is needed when it is inhaled. This is because it is inhaled straight to your lungs. Flixotide works by reducing swelling and irritation in the lungs. They have what is called an ‘anti-inflammatory action’. Flixotide helps to prevent asthma attacks in people who need regular treatment. This is why they are sometimes called 'preventers'. We also offer other preventers such as Clenil, Pulmicort and Qvar. They need to be used regularly, every day. Flixotide will not help treat sudden asthma attacks where you feel breathless.

A different medicine is used for treating sudden attacks (called a ‘reliever’). If you have more than one inhaler, be careful not to confuse them. We stock the following relievers: Ventolin, Salbutamol, and Salamol

The combined inhalers (reliever/preventer) might be a very convenient option: Seretide and Symbicort
