What Flixotide Nebules is and what it is used for

Flixotide Nebules contain a medicine called fluticasone propionate. Fluticasone propionate 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. It has what is called an ‘anti-inflammatory action’. Flixotide help to prevent asthma attacks in people who need regular treatment. This is why they are sometimes called 'preventers'. 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 medicine, be careful not to confuse them.

How to take Flixotide Nebules

Flixotide Nebules come in two different strengths. Your doctor will have decided which strength you need. Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if you are not sure. Using this medicine
• Do not inject or swallow the liquid. Flixotide Nebules should only be inhaled using your jet nebuliser. Using Flixotide Nebules with ultrasonic nebulisers is not generally recommended.
• The jet nebuliser produces a fine mist which you breathe in through a mouthpiece or face mask.
• Do not let the liquid, or the mist produced by the nebuliser get into your eyes. You can wear glasses or goggles to protect them.
• Each small plastic container (Nebule®) contains some liquid.
• The liquid is put into a nebuliser. This makes a fine mist for you to breathe in through a face mask or mouthpiece. Use of a mouthpiece prevents the medicine affecting the skin of your face, which may occur if you use a face mask over a long period of time. If you prefer to use a face mask, or you are using a face mask for your child, then you must protect the skin on your (or your child’s) face with a barrier cream or wash your (or your child’s) face thoroughly after treatment.
• Use your nebuliser in a well-ventilated room as some of the mist will be released into the air and may be breathed in by others.
• It takes a few days for this medicine to work and it is very important that you use it regularly. Adults and Children over 16 years of age
• The usual starting dose is 0.5 to 2.0 mg (500 to 2000 micrograms) twice a day.
• Flixotide Nebules 0.5 mg/2 ml provides you with a dose of 500 micrograms.
• Flixotide Nebules 2.0 mg/2 ml provides you with a dose of 2000 micrograms. Children (4 to 16 years of age)
• The usual starting dose is 1 mg (1000 micrograms) twice a day. It is recommended that children being treated with steroids, including Flixotide Nebules have their height checked regularly by their doctor. If you are using high doses of an inhaled steroid for a long time you may sometimes need extra steroids for example during stressful circumstances such as a road traffic accident or before an operation. Your doctor may decide to give you extra steroid medicines during this time. Patients who have been on high doses of steroids, including Flixotide Nebules for a long time, must not stop taking their medicine suddenly without talking to their doctor. Suddenly stopping treatment can make you feel unwell and may cause symptoms such as vomiting, drowsiness, nausea, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite, low blood sugar level and fitting.

• put the top on the nebuliser bowl and shake gently to mix the contents If dilution is necessary then only sterile sodium chloride 0.9% solution should be used. After use
• use a fresh Nebule for each dose. Only open a new one when you are ready to use it. If there is any liquid left over, throw it away. Do not save it to use again
• throw away any solution remaining in the nebuliser bowl
• clean your nebuliser in the recommended way If you use more Flixotide than you should If you use more than you were told, talk to your doctor as soon as possible.
