Understanding high-dose inhaled corticosteroids…
Inhaled corticosteroids can help to keep inflammation in the lungs under control; as with all medicines, they can cause side effects which may make some patients worry about taking them.
This short booklet provides a quick overview of high-dose inhaled corticosteroids. It aims to advise patients about some of the symptoms they may experience so they know when to speak to a healthcare professional, instead of stopping treatment suddenly.
The booklet also includes a perforated-edged safety card with space for personalised medication and dosage information to be added by their HCP. This can be kept in a patient’s wallet in case of emergency.
