ArmonAir Digihaler (Fluticasone Propionate) is a prescription inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine for the long-term treatment of asthma in people aged 12 years and older. ICS medicines such as fluticasone propionate help to decrease inflammation in the lungs. Inflammation in the lungs can lead to breathing problems. Fluticasone works by reducing swelling (inflammation) of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. ArmonAir Digihaler is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems. It is not known if ArmonAir Digihaler is safe and effective in children younger than 12 years of age. ArmonAir Digihaler contains a built-in electronic module that records and stores information about inhaler events. To prevent dry mouth, hoarseness, and oral yeast infections from developing, gargle and rinse your mouth with water after each use. Do not swallow the rinse water. Use ArmonAir Digihaler 2 times a day (about 12 hours apart) at the same time every day. It may take 1 to 2 weeks or longer after you start ArmonAir Digihaler for your asthma symptoms to get better.
