Pharmacology

Fluticasone Furoate is a strong anti-inflammatory synthetic tri fluorinated corticosteroid. Fluticasone Furoate, like other corticosteroids, has a wide range of effects on a variety of cell types (mast cells, eosinophils, neutrophils, macrophages, lymphocytes) and mediators (histamine, eicosanoids, leukotrienes, cytokines) involved in inflammation.

Dosage and Administration

For intranasal use only. Adults and adolescents (12 years and over) The recommended starting dose is 2 sprays in each nostril once daily. Once adequate control of symptoms is achieved, a dose reduction to one spray in each nostril once daily can be effective for maintenance.

Children (2 to 11 years of age): The recommended starting dose is 1 spray in each nostril once daily.

Flutica Cream Apply a thin film of Flutica Cream to the affected skin areas once or twice daily. Rub in gently.

Interaction

Fluticasone Furoate exposure may be increased by cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inhibitors. Ritonavir should not be taken with other medications. Coadministration of other powerful CYP3A4 inhibitors, such as ketoconazole, should be done with caution.
