Overview

Introduction

Ventiflo 250mcg Capsule belongs to a group of medicines called steroids. It is used to prevent and treat asthma. It prevents the cells in the lungs and breathing passages from releasing substances that cause inflammation of the airways. This widens the airways and makes breathing easier.

Ventiflo 250mcg Capsule should be taken in the dose and duration as directed by your doctor. 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 you should continue taking it even if you do not have any symptoms. If you stop taking it, your asthma may get worse.

To get the most benefit from this medicine, you need to make sure you get your inhaler technique right. For normal hygiene, the mouthpiece of the inhaler should be cleaned weekly with a clean, dry tissue or cloth. You should not wash or put any part of the inhaler in water.

The most common side effects of this medicine include upper respiratory tract infection, sinus infection, throat irritation, and voice change. You can help prevent these symptoms by rinsing your mouth and throat with water or brushing your teeth after using your inhaler. If you experienced any of these side effects, or any other symptoms which you believe is caused by the medicine, you should let your doctor know.

Child Specialist
?Your child may be suffering from Asthama. Asthma can be hard to diagnose. Your child's doctor will consider the nature and frequency of symptoms and may use tests to rule out other conditions and to identify the most likely cause of his or her symptoms. A number of childhood conditions can have symptoms similar to those caused by asthma. To make things more complicated, these conditions also commonly co-occur with asthma. So your child's doctor will have to determine whether your child's symptoms are caused by asthma, a condition other than asthma, or both asthma and another condition.?In younger children, diagnosis can be difficult because lung function tests aren't accurate before 5 years of age. Your doctor will rely on detailed information you and your child provide about symptoms. Sometimes a diagnosis can't be made until later, after months or even years of observing symptoms?If your child seems to have asthma that's triggered by allergies, the doctor may want to do allergy skin testing. During a skin test, the skin is pricked with extracts of common allergy-causing substances, such as animal dander, mold or dust mites, and observed for signs of an allergic reaction
