  • The dose depends on how severe asthma is.
  • If you have not previously been treated with inhaled adrenal gland hormone, you should usually start with a low dose (80-160 micrograms a day) or a medium dose (160-320 micrograms a day).
  • The highest recommended dose is 1,280 micrograms a day.

Note:

  • Before using the spray for the first time or if it has not been used for more than one week, give 3 breaths into the air before spraying.

possible side effects

Uncommon (0.1-1%)

Difficulty in speaking

eczema

Rare (0.01-0.1%)

Hypertension

Allergic reactions (including allergic swelling of the face, oral cavity and larynx)

  • The heartbeat is mainly seen by concomitant treatment with agents that have known cardiac effects - such as theophylline (anti-asthma and COPD).
  • Muscle contraction in the trachea is rarely seen by inhalation.
  • Specially for long-term treatment with high doses, there may be a risk of side effects other than airways, including Cushing's syndrome (eg moon-shaped face, small arms and legs, shortness of breath), fall in bone density and, more rarely (especially in children), psychological effects such as depression, anxiety and aggressiveness, may affect the adrenal cortex function. The risk of these side effects is much less on inhalation than by adrenal cancer hormone treatment with tablets or injections.
  • Stressy eyes (blurry vision due to fluid retention behind the retina) have been seen during treatment with adrenal gland hormones.

effect

Works locally in the respiratory tract. The drug contains a binyrebark hormone that inhibits tissue reactions seen by asthma. This facilitates air passage to and from the lungs. Works exclusively preventive and has no effect on an ongoing attack.


Pharmaceutical forms

Inhalation spray, solution. 1 dose (breath) contains 80 micrograms or 160 micrograms ciclesonide.


Special warnings

  • Caution in pulmonary tuberculosis and in respiratory tract infections.
  • At high doses you can see the effect of the adrenal cortex function, which is usually not practical.
  • In poorly functioning liver there is a greater risk that the agent will affect the rest of the body and not just the respiratory tract.
  • You should make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D during treatment.
  • For long-term treatment of children with inhaled adrenal cortex hormone, the child's height should be measured approximately once a year.
  • Larger amounts of grapefruit juice may increase the risk of certain side effects.
  • If the drug has been affected by one's asthma and you suddenly stop treatment, there is an increased risk of acute asthma attacks.

Using other medicines

It is important to inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking.
  • A number of agents (including some antibiotics, antifungal agents and anti-HIV agents) may increase the risk of side effects from other parts of the body than the airways.
