Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

In two placebo-controlled, 12-week, clinical studies (Trial 1 and Trial 2) [see Clinical Studies], a total of 822 adolescent and adult patients with persistent symptomatic asthma despite ICS or ICS/LABA therapy were treated twice daily with either placebo; or ARMONAIR RESPICLICK 55 mcg, 113 mcg, or 232 mcg. Sixty percent of patients were female and 80% of patients were white. The average duration of exposure was 82 days in ARMONAIR RESPICLICK groups compared with 75 days in the placebo group. Table 1 displays the incidence of most common adverse reactions in pooled Trials 1 and 2.

Other adverse reactions not previously listed (and occurring in <3% of patients and in three or more patients on ARMONAIR RESPICLICK) that were reported more frequently by patients with asthma treated with ARMONAIR RESPICLICK compared with patients treated with placebo include the following: Oropharyngeal pain, hypertension, rhinitis allergic, influenza, pyrexia, dizziness, respiratory tract infection, muscle spasms, rhinitis, epistaxis, ligament sprain, musculoskeletal pain, pain in extremity, throat irritation, and vomiting.

Long Term Safety Study

This was a 26-week, open label study of 674 patients previously treated with inhaled corticosteroids who were treated twice daily with ARMONAIR RESPICLICK 113 mcg or 232 mcg; fluticasone propionate/salmeterol multidose dry powder inhaler (AIRDUO RESPICLICK, hereafter referred to as fluticasone propionate/salmeterol MDPI) 113 mcg/14 mcg or 232 mcg/14 mcg; fluticasone propionate aerosol 110 mcg or 220 mcg; or fluticasone propionate and salmeterol inhalation powder 250 mcg/50 mcg, 500 mcg/50 mcg. The types of adverse reactions among ARMONAIR RESPICLICK treatments were similar to those reported above in placebo-controlled studies.

Postmarketing Experience

In addition to adverse reactions reported from clinical trials, the following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of fluticasone propionate. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure. These events have been chosen for inclusion due to either their seriousness, frequency of reporting, or causal connection to fluticasone propionate or a combination of these factors.

Ear, Nose, and Throat: Aphonia, facial and oropharyngeal edema, and throat soreness.

Endocrine and Metabolic: Cushingoid features, growth velocity reduction in children/adolescents, hyperglycemia, and osteoporosis.

Eye: Cataracts, blurred vision, and central serous chorioretinopathy.

Immune System Disorders: Immediate and delayed hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, rash, angioedema, and bronchospasm, have been reported. Anaphylactic reactions in patients with severe milk protein allergy have been reported.

Infections and Infestations: Esophageal candidiasis.

Psychiatry: Agitation, aggression, anxiety, depression, and restlessness. Behavioral changes, including hyperactivity and irritability, have been reported very rarely and primarily in children.

Respiratory: Asthma exacerbation, bronchospasm, chest tightness, dyspnea, immediate bronchospasm, pneumonia, and wheeze.

Skin: Contusions and ecchymoses.
