Alvesco (Ciclesonide) Product Information
Alvesco is a prescription inhaler medication. It is a corticosteroid which aids in the treatment of asthma by reducing the swelling of airways for easier breathing. This medication is suitable for use by adults, or children 12 years and older.
What is Ciclesonide used for?
It is a corticosteroid that is able to stop the production of substances that cause inflammation in the body. This medicine will do its job well if it is taken exactly as the health care expert recommends, and will help control your asthma symptoms.
Besides treating asthma, doctors can suggest this inhaler for treatment of other health conditions to adults and children who are at least twelve years old.
How is this Inhaler used?
Medication should be taken exactly as your doctor directs; take the recommended dose, for the amount of time advised, and if your doctor reduces your dosage, follow the new instructions.
It may take a whole month before the asthma symptoms improve , but you should continue to take the medication. If you will be operated on soon, tell your doctor as they might change your dosage. Your dosing needs may change too if you become sick, stressed out or if you have had a recent asthma attack.
This is not a suitable medication for treating asthma attacks as it will not work fast enough to control an active attack. You should get a rescue inhaler that can quickly stop an active asthma attack, so if your current inhaler doesn’t seem to work, have your doctor prescribe a different kind of medication.
Take this inhaler every day in the morning or evening and rinse your mouth after inhaling the medication. You should prime your inhaler prior to the first use or any other time you have stopped taking it for ten days or longer.
There are instructions on how to prime the inhaler located on the product label, but also ask your doctor to demonstrate this. If you want to stop taking this medication, do not do so suddenly,to avoid negative effects. Instead, ask your doctor for advice before you stop therapy. If you miss a dose, take it the soonest you can recall providing the time to take the next dose is not near.
What are the Side Effects of Ciclesonide Inhaler?
When using this inhaler you might encounter some side effects, and while the severe ones such as wheezing, choking, breathing difficulty, chest tightness, white sores in mouth or throat and vision issues might occur, they are rare.
The most common side effects are not serious and can be well tolerated. These include:
- Hoarse voice, runny nose, stuffy nose, dry mouth, sore throat
- Bad taste in the mouth

If you are going to start taking Alvesco, ensure that you do it safely by taking the following precautions:

- Do you have glaucoma or a cataracts problem? If so, tell your physician
- If you are suffering from herpes infection in the eyes, don’t take without the permission of your doctor
- If you have osteoporosis or if there are people who suffer from it in your family
