Ciclez 160mcg Inhaler

Prescription Required

Introduction

Ciclez 160mcg Inhaler is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma (wheezing and shortness of breath). It is a corticosteroid and is known as a "preventer". You need to have a fast-acting “reliever” as well because this medicine will not stop an asthma attack that has already started.

Your doctor will tell you how often you need to use your inhaler. It is important that you take the lowest dose needed to effectively control your asthma. The effect of this medicine may be noticeable after a few days but will only reach its maximum after a few weeks. This medicine must be used regularly to be effective, so go on taking it even if you do not have any symptoms. That means it is doing its job. If you stop taking it your asthma may get worse. It should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (reliever). To get the benefit from this medicine you need to make sure you get your inhaler technique right, otherwise it will not work as well.

The most common side effects are hoarseness of voice, sore throat, and oral infections in the mouth or throat. If you get these, do not stop taking it but do talk to your doctor. You can help prevent these symptoms by rinsing your mouth and throat with water or brushing your teeth after using your inhaler. There are other, rarer side effects which can be serious. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about them. In general, you should be trying to avoid situations that make your asthma worse (your triggers) and try not to smoke.

Before taking Ciclez 160mcg Inhaler, you should tell your doctor if you have tuberculosis, any infections in your mouth or lungs, or liver disease. While taking it you may be more at risk of getting infections so stay away from people with colds and flu. If you use Ciclez 160mcg Inhaler for a long time it may cause weak bones (osteoporosis) and damage to your eyes (glaucoma or cataracts). You might need tests for bone density and eye pressure. Ask your doctor whether it is safe to take this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Benefits of Ciclez Inhaler

In Prevention of Asthma

Ciclez 160mcg Inhaler works by reducing and preventing swelling and inflammation in your lungs. It is known as a “preventer” and is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma such as tightness in your chest, wheezing, breathlessness, and coughing. This means you can carry out your daily activities more easily and more confidently.

It may take a few weeks for this medicine to show full effects. Keep taking it regularly as prescribed even if you do not have any symptoms (this means it is working). Do not stop using it unless your doctor advises you to, otherwise you are more likely to suffer from symptoms.

This medicine will not stop an asthma attack that has already started. You should use your “reliever” inhaler for this. Inhaled medicines will not work properly if you do not use your inhaler correctly. Ask your nurse or doctor to show you the right technique.
