FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: FLOVENT

User Comments:


For Asthma, Maintenance “I agree with several others, Flovent was fast at managing my allergy/exercise induced asthma. Seriously within a day or two I have decreased albuterol usage and the third day, I was symptom free. I did not specifically notice joint pain related to this medication but I do experience some pain at times in hands…I attributed that to getting older. I do however notice a dreaded 5 lbs weight gain each time I am on it that quickly subsides when it’s my off season.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “I have been using Flovent for about 4 months, ran out of of it and didn’t bother to refill it till my asthma started flaring up again. On the first day of use I started feeling a whole lot better! I usually wake up with wheezing, coughing, short of breath and some phlegm but since I’ve been reusing this medicine, it has helped with all those awful symptoms. No side effects for me except very slight dizziness but all the worth of not feeling like complete crap!”

For Asthma, Maintenance “Horrible! My son had the worst behavioral issues from it. The meds seemed to work ok on his asthma prevention but he was aggressive and violent. We switched him back to Alvesco and within a week he was back to normal.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “I cannot tolerate the full adult dose of 2 puffs twice daily. I get joint pain, exzema breakouts, heartburn/sour stomach and irritable/easily frustrated/impatient, (even angry at times) more than necessary.The dose I can tolerate, somewhat, (1 puff twice/daily) is not really effective every day, with every set of triggers, such as catching a cold, or doing yardwork.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “Gets you over the hump in regard to asthma flare ups, and have had fewer Emergency Room episodes since getting this. Taking it everyday is another story – it causes chestpain after about the 3rd consecutive day of use. So I generally stop using after a couple days, and then if symptoms still persist will start up again after a day or two break from the drug. When asthma is back under control I dont take the drug at all.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “This medication has been a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, my asthma symptoms are all but gone after being on this drug for a week. On the other hand, it’s made me feel tired all day yet unable to sleep at night. I’ve also noticed that I’ve been angry and otherwise unhappy more frequently since starting this drug.I’m going to give it one more week to see if the side effects become more manageable.”
