In brief: RAD =ASTHMA

Flovent is unlikely cause palpitations.
It is a long acting steroid inhaler, usually dosed 2puffs bid. The most important tool to monitor the asthma is your Peak Flow meter. Take 3 readings am and Pm average them and keep a record of the number. If your maintenance therapy of Singulair (montelukast) and Flovent are effective your # >450. If not your regimen needs reevaluation. EKG/ Labs to evaluate palpitations
