About Esiflo 250 Transhaler

Esiflo 250 Transhaler is used to treat and prevent asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) like bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes) and emphysema (shortness of breath). Asthma is a chronic (long-term) respiratory condition in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs.

Fluticasone propionate belongs to the class of corticosteroids that work by acting on the nasal lining's inner cells and stopping releasing certain chemicals in the body that cause inflammatory reactions. Thereby providing relief from sneezing, runny or blocked nose and sinus discomfort.
