About Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi

Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi is a combination medication primarily used to prevent and treat symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) such as shortness of breath or wheezing (whistling sound while breathing). Asthma is a chronic (long-term) respiratory condition in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty in breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes).

Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi is a combination of two drugs, namely: Formoterol (bronchodilator) and Fluticasone propionate (corticosteroid). Formoterol belongs to the class of bronchodilators that works by relaxing muscles and widening the airways of the lungs. Thus, it makes breathing easier. Fluticasone propionate belongs to the class of corticosteroids that works by acting inside cells of the nasal lining and stops the release of certain chemicals in the body that cause inflammatory reactions. Thereby, provides relief from sneezing, runny or blocked nose, and sinus discomfort.

Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi is for inhalation only. Use Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi as prescribed. Your doctor will recommend how often you take Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi based on your medical condition. Some people may experience headache, sore throat, sneezing, stuffy nose, hoarse voice, cough, low fever, chest tightness, a fungal infection in the mouth, sinus pain, nausea, stomach upset, dizziness, nervousness, vomiting, or irregular heartbeat. Most of these side effects of Avessa 250 Inhaler 120 mdi do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
