Occasionally, signs or symptoms of systemic glucocorticosteroid-side effects may occur particularly at higher doses prescribe for prolonged patients. These effects are much less likely to occur than with oral corticosteroids and probably depending on dose, exposure time, concomitant and previous corticosteroid exposure, and individual sensitivity. Possible systemic effects include adrenal suppression, growth retardation in children and adolescents, decreased in bone mineral density, cataract and glaucoma.
Description of selected adverse reactions: The candida infection in the oropharynx is due to drug deposition. Advising the patient to rinse the mouth out with water after each dosing will minimise the risk.
As with other inhalation therapy, paradoxical bronchospasm may occur in very rare cases.
Facial skin irritation has occurred in some cases when a nebuliser with a face mask has been used. To prevent irritation, the facial skin should be washed with water after use of the face mask.
