How Should Fluticasone Inhalers Be Stored?
Fluticasone inhalers should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The fluticasone Diskus must be discarded six weeks after you remove it from the protective foil pouch.
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your fluticasone inhaler as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take double the dose of fluticasone.
