Flovent etc. (Fluticasone)

Flovent is fluticasone administered as an oral metered dose inhaler for long-term asthma treatment.  each dosage delivers the medication straight into the lungs.  This corticosteroid reduces the inflammation and swelling of the airways to control symptoms of asthma (difficulty breathing, chest tightening, wheezing, and coughing due to airway obstruction).  
It will also slow down the production of mucus in the airways to allow easier flow of air in and out of the lungs.  However, it will not treat an asthma attack that has already begun.  Fluticasone is to be inhaled twice a day at the same time everyday.
