The Flixotide Accuhaler and Flixotide Evohaler are both long-term preventative treatments for asthma. Both versions of Flixotide work by delivering the active ingredient, fluticasone propionate, directly to the lungs, where it prevents inflammation of the airways. Although it's not used to provide relief, it can help improve asthma symptoms with long-term use, often when used alongside a reliever treatment such as Ventolin.
HealthExpress provides you with a safe, convenient and secure way to buy the Flixotide Accuhaler or Evohaler online. In order to do so, we ask all our patients to begin the ordering process by completing a free online consultation which will be reviewed by one of our registered doctors.
What are the differences between and Flixotide Accuhaler and Evohaler?
Both the Evohaler and Accuhaler contain the active ingredient fluticasone propionate, but the way in which they deliver it to your system differs.
The Flixotide Accuhaler delivers a powder version of the medication to the lungs. This simply involves placing your mouth over the opening of the Accuhaler and inhaling a small amount of the treatment. This may be a more suitable option if you find it difficult to use an Evohaler, which involves pressing down a canister. The Evohaler contains a set amount of doses which are tracked every time you use the inhaler, so you'll know exactly when you're about to run out.
The Flixotide Evohaler looks like a standard inhaler and is designed to provide you with a dose of medication in a compressed form. Using the Evohaler simply involves pressing down the canister containing the active ingredient while you inhale the medication through the mouth piece. The Evohaler also has a set amount of doses, although it's not always easy to track of when your treatment is ready to be replaced. You may prefer to use the Evohaler if you are allergic to milk protein, which forms part of the ingredients found in the accuhaler.
What are the benefits of using this treatment?
The Flixotide Accuhaler and Evohaler are both an effective long-term way to control asthma symptoms, if used alongside a reliever inhaler. As these treatments are delivered straight to the lungs, they are less likely to lead to side effects than oral steroid treatments.
How does it work?
Fluticasone propionate is a type of steroid known as a corticosteroid, which means that it works to prevent inflammation within bronchi, which makes them more sensitive than normal to irritation. These treatments are able to do this because they prevent the release of chemicals that increase the risk of inflammation occurring. If the airways are less inflamed, there is less chance of irritation occurring.
Who can use it?
If you experience asthma symptoms more than twice a week, if you have to use your reliever more than twice a week or if you wake up at least once a week due to breathing difficulty, you might have been recommended a Flixotide Evohaler or Accuhaler.
Although most adults are able to use these medications, there may be a few instances where it's not recommended that you do, such as if you are allergic to the ingredients used in the treatment such as lactose and milk protein (Accuhaler) or norflurane (Evohaler) or if you can't use any similar asthma treatment for the same reason.
It's also important that you mention to your doctor if you've ever required treatment for tuberculosis; you are pregnant or breastfeeding; or if you are currently using another steroid treatment or any other medication.
How do you use these treatments?
This medication is available in four different doses and which one you should take will depend on the severity of your asthma. Your doctor may choose to alter your dose depending on the intensity of your symptoms at a particular point in time. Below is a general guide of recommended doses:
Flixotide Evohaler (50mcg, 125mcg, 250mcg)
Mild to moderate asthma – Starting dose is a 100mcg dose twice a day
Severe asthma – 250mcg or 500mcg dose twice a day is normally recommended; up to a 1,000mcg dose twice a day
Flixotide Accuhaler (50mcg, 100mcg, 250mcg)
Mild to moderate asthma – A 100mcg dose twice a day
Severe asthma – 250mcg or 500mcg dose twice a day; however up to a 1,000mcg twice a day is the maximum that can be prescribed
What side effects can these treatments cause?
The Flixotide Evohaler and Accuhaler are less likely to cause side effects than most oral steroid treatments for asthma, but there is still a small risk. The most common effects is oral thrush or a sore throat, both of which can be prevented by rinsing the mouth after each dose. You should seek immediate medical help if you experience anything more serious.
