Arnuity Ellipta (Fluticasone Furoate) Product Information
Arnuity is a inhaled medication prescribed to treat asthma in adults and children who are over 12 years of age. It helps control and prevent asthma attacks. Inhaled corticosteroids such as Arnuity Ellipta can decrease inflammation and can therefore stop asthma attacks from happening. It should not be used to treat an acute asthma attack as it is not a rescue inhaler.

How to use Arnuity inhaler?
When taking this medication, you should take 1 inhalation once daily and at the same time every day.
The amount to be taken is based on the severity of the condition, and normally for those who are 12 years old and over, it will be 100 mcg daily, providing they are not inhaling other corticosteroids as well. If this dosage does not appear to be working for you after 2 weeks, then the dosage can be raised to 200 mcg.
The highest amount that it is recommended for an adult is 200 mcg once daily. It is important to rinse your mouth and not swallow the water following each dose. Do not take more than your recommended dose.
As with many medications there is the risk of side effects, and although they may not occur it is best to know what to look for. Your doctor should be informed right away if any of the following Arnuity Ellipta side effects:
- White patches appearing on the throat or mouth
- Difficulties when passing urine
- Nausea and vomiting
- Discharge from the eyes
- Discharge from the vagina
It should not be taken if an acute asthma attack is already in process. You should tell the health care provider if you have ever suffered from:
- Viral, fungal or bacterial infections
- Liver disease
- Herpes in the eyes
- Parasitic infection
- Weak immune system
- Low bone density
There is the likelihood that there will be bone loss if steroids are used long term. It is possible to reduce this chance if you refrain from smoking, take plenty of exercise and make sure that there is plenty of calcium and vitamin D in the diet.
