How do asthma oral steroids compare? Budesonide versus fluticasone, mometasone etc.

Not Fair Question: Everybody's genetics are different, so response to steroids between everybody is different. There are charts to show potency on each individual steroid. The most important thing is to find the right medical therapy to get your asthma under control...Not the low dose of inhaled corticosteroid or the type used.

Can I use expired Fluticasone?

Probably OK: Drug expiration dates reflect the time of proved safety and effectiveness. But in almost all cases, the drug remains potent and safe for much longer (often many years), if it hasn't been exposed to high heat for long periods (like a car's glove compartment in summer). It's always safest to get a refill, but most likely the expired fluticasone will work just fine. ...Read more

Ok how long does it take for dulera (formoterol and mometasone) to work?

Dulera (formoterol and mometasone): Is not meant to work to alleviate symptoms. It is an anti-inflammatory medicine which takes time to take effect and a long acting bronchodilator which is not used to open up the airways fully, just low level so the rescue medicine can take effect faster. You still need your bronchodilator. Reconsider changing Lisinopril to arb if you have chronic cough. Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) will work but not noticeably. ...Read more
