Used in the treatment of asthma in patients not adequately controlled with inhaled corticosteroids & as required inhaled short-acting β2-agonist OR adequately controlled on both an inhaled corticosteroid & long-acting β2-agonist.
For inhalation use. Patients will need to be trained on the use of the inhaler and their asthma should be regularly reassessed by a doctor, so that the strength of fluticasone propionate/formoterol fumarate (flutiform) inhaler they are receiving remains optimal and is only changed on medical advice. Patients should rinse their mouth, gargle with water, or brush the teeth after inhaling and spit out the residue to minimize the risk of oral candidiasis or dysphonia.
