My son is 10yo. & has been on this treatment for a month. I have seen an improvement in his condition. On the other hand, I have seen a patient, loving young man turn into an irritable, angry boy. Is it worth this?

I have asthma and NTM. When using Flovent my breathing is much stronger and my lung volume is optimal.

I have had a chronic cough for six months. I have no allergies and no reason to suspect asthma. After many tests and many medications (including albuterol inhaler) I was put on flovent. Within a day my coughing started reducing until by two weeks I am cough free. This medicine has changed my life, it gave it back to me. If you have a cough of unknown origin it is definitely worth a try.

Worked wonderfully. I normally have problems in urban areas due to air pollution, but this helped immensely. Additionally, I noticed my exercise-induced symptoms decreased. I noticed no side effects other than a mild dry mouth.

flovent seems to help in relieving the cronic cough connected to my asthma. But as mentioned by others it does increase appitite a lot. It can also cause a soar throat but I really have not had that experience. I fell as though it is effective and can help in relieving bothersom symptoms. I still have trouble with exercise and it can be difficult to breath after running or strenous physical activity.

I love this product. When I use it in the winter I never have to use Albuterol. If I stop using this product (due to financial reasons) I get real bad and have to start again. This has made such a difference in my life. Thank you for Flovent!!!!

My 2 yr old son started on this medication and within a few weeks he was hoarse and coughing more. He was seen by another specialist who said that the medication was causing polyps on his throat and vocal cords. He either needed to quit taking the medication or have surgery. After I had him off the Flovent for 1 month his voice returned normal and the polyps were almost completed gone.
