Arnuity Ellipta Alternatives

The fluticasone furoate inhalation powder sold by GSK under the trade name Arnuity Ellipta is an FDA-approved prescription used for treating and managing asthma in adults and children five years of age and older.

However, it is essential to note that Arnuity Ellipta is not taken to treat asthmatic emergencies.

There are three strengths available for Arnuity Ellipta: 50 mcg, 100 mcg, and 200 mcg per inhalation. It needs to be consumed once a day, at the same time every day.

Inhaled corticosteroids (ICs)are medications that include Arnuity Ellipta. By lowering airway inflammation, which can make airways more sensitive and congested than usual and lead to breathing issues, ICs medications which are anti-inflammatory agents, help avoid asthma symptoms.

Although Arnuity Ellipta works well for many patients, there might be better options for some with severe asthma symptoms. An alternative drug may be required for several factors, including side effects, profile, hypersensitivity to the active or inactive components of the medication, or issues with using the inhaler.

What else may I use aside from Arnuity Ellipta?

The same active ingredient (fluticasone) found in Arnuity Ellipta is also included in some other ICS inhalers. However, some of them may use a slightly different delivery mechanism.

Additionally, there are several ICS inhalers with other corticosteroid medications. But, before quitting Arnuity Ellipta, you should consult your doctor for expert advice.

The following are corticosteroid inhalers similar to Arnuity Ellipta:

  • Alvesco (ciclesonide)
  • Asmanex HFA (mometasone furoate)
  • Beclomethasone dipropionate HFA
  • Flovent HFA (fluticasone propionate inhalation aerosol)
  • Flovent Diskus (fluticasone propionate inhalation powder)
  • Fluticasone propionate HFA
  • Pulmicort Flexhaler (budesonide)
  • Qvar RediHaler (beclomethasone dipropionate HFA)

How to switch to a substitute for Arnuity Ellipta?

People with asthma may opt to choose and change inhalers for a variety of reasons.  Allergies, worsening asthma symptoms, problems with adherence, improper inhaler technique, adverse events, patient preferences, and financial considerations are among the causes of switching inhalers.

Your decision to switch from Arnuity Ellipta to another ICS inhaler should be in consultation with the prescribing healthcare provider. This ensures you receive the necessary medical advice and instructions before using a new inhaler.
