Atemur review





Atemur is a brand name for the generic drug fluticasone. It is in a class of medications known as corticosteroids and is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma, and to ease the symptoms of COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. If you use it every day, it can decrease the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. It is not effective in stopping asthma attacks once they have started. Atemur is administered in an inhaler, and works by preventing the cells of your lungs from releasing the substances that trigger asthma attacks. It is given to patients four years of age or older. Children four to eleven years old should take one inhalation of a smaller dosage twice daily, and those over twelve should take one inhalation of a larger dosage twice daily.

Atemur is generally well-tolerated by most patients, but as with all medications, some people may experience negative reactions to it. Some of these might include runny nose, ear, nose and throat infections, sinus infections, sneezing or other nasal irritations, eye infections, stomach infections, mouth sores, constipation, appendicitis, abnormal liver function, pneumonia or lower respiratory tract infections, rheumatism, stiffness or rigidity, bone or cartilage disorders, sleeplessness or sleepiness, tremors, compressed nerves, viral infections, chest pains, hives, taste disorders, flaking or scaling of skin, and sweating. Other reactions may include laryngitis, hypothyroidism, dry eyes, earache, fast heartbeat, excess blood sugar, inability to speak, swelling, hormone disorders, cataracts or glaucoma, weight gain, heartburn or acid reflux, back pain, chest congestion, rash, yeast infections, or breathing disorders. In addition, some people may experience allergic reactions. The symptoms of an allergic reaction are hives, swelling of the tongue, face, lips or throat, and difficulty breathing. If you should have a reaction like this, call your doctor immediately.

Because patients taking Atemur can be at risk for asthma-related deaths, there are certain precautions that must be followed carefully. It is very important that your doctor makes clear that Atemur is only to be used for the prevention of asthma symptoms, and not for the treatment of an asthma attack in progress. It is not effective for an attack in progress, and can cause you not to seek the treatment that will actually help you. In addition, if you find that you are inhaling more and more Atemur just to manage your symptoms, this may be an indication that your underlying condition is getting worse and that you and your doctor need to pursue another avenue of treatment. While you are taking Atemur, you may be more susceptible to infections, as the steroids will lower your immune system.

Atemur is in Pregnancy Category C, which means that there is no indication that it is harmful to a pregnant woman or a developing fetus. It is also found in very low levels in breast milk, so seems to pose no danger to a nursing baby. However, as with all medications, it is important to discuss with your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or if you are nursing a baby.
