Description

Ciclesonide is used to prevent and reduce the symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. Controlling asthma symptoms may decrease time lost from work or school. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works by reducing the swelling of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier.

Inhale this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor. No shaking of the inhaler is necessary before use. If the inhaler is new or has not been used for 1 week or more, prime the inhaler for use by spraying 3 puffs into the air. Remove the cover on the mouthpiece. Breathe out as much as you comfortably can. Place the mouthpiece into your mouth and close your lips tightly around it. While breathing in slowly and deeply, press down on the canister with your finger. After inhaling, try to hold your breath for at least 10 seconds to get this medication into your lungs and allow it to work properly.

Cautions

Alvesco inhalation will not work fast enough to treat an asthma attack. Use only a fast-acting inhalation medicine for an asthma attack. Tell your doctor if it seems like your asthma medications don't work as well. Steroid medication can weaken your immune system, making it easier for you to get an infection or worsening an infection you already have or have recently had. Tell your doctor about any illness or infection you have had within the past several weeks, your medical history, especially of: tuberculosis, untreated infections (such as those caused by fungus or bacteria), certain eye problems (glaucoma, cataracts, herpes infection of the eye), liver disease, adrenal gland problems (e.g., adrenal insufficiency) underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), bone loss (osteoporosis).

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Alvesco: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
