Flovent for COPD & Asthma

Flovent is a medication prescribed to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and asthma. It is not a rescue inhaler and is used daily to reduce the risk of asthma attacks and dangerous bronchospasms (airways spasms).

Flovent HFA is the aerosol version that disperses fluticasone, this inhaler's main active ingredient. When fluticasone is inhaled, it decreases the swelling and inflammation in the airways. Flovent Diskus works the same way, but the medication is dispersed in an inhaled powder. This type of inhaler does not propel fluticasone into the lungs. When used correctly, Flovent can prevent breathing symptoms and improve everyday function for those with COPD or asthma.

At the time of this article, there is no therapeutically equivalent version of Flovent HFA or Diskus. When a medication is submitted to the Food and Drug Administration for approval, it is granted a patent that allows the drug manufacturer to have exclusive production rights. Once this patent expires, other manufacturers can produce generic versions of the medication at cheaper prices.

Flovent HFA has a patent until August of 2026, so there will not be a generic version available for several years. [1] The high price of brand-name of Flovent can make it difficult to afford, but you save time and money by using My Drug Center. Through our certified online pharmacy, you can expect to pay a fraction of the hundreds of dollars that local pharmacies usually charge.

There are several dosages available, so talk to your doctor to find the right dosage for you. In clinical trials, the most effective dosage strength of fluticasone was 200mcg daily. [2] Still, every patient is different, and what works best for another person with asthma may not be the most suitable dosage for you. Prices for Flovent also vary depending on your insurance. There may not be generic versions of Flovent inhalers available, but you can save money by using My Drug Center to order your prescriptions online. Learn more about Flovent through our blog today.
