    My son is 6 years old and was taking Singular, had developed severe behavior problems so the doctor put him on Flovent HFA 44mg and since he has been taking it for the last 2 months he is having even worse problems. Aggressiveness, hating everything and everyone, always wanting to be alone instead of with his friends. Do not recommend.

    I have used this med for over 6 years and it has managed asthma very well and only need rescue inhaler occasionally. My Dr. said I could try going off it after the allergy season was overbut I immediately got conge so have been on it ever since. I do bruise easily and bleed under the skin from a minor bump, but I can breathe!

    My 3 year old son has been on this inhaler for over a year and it has made a huge difference. We have not had to go to the ER since starting, have not had to take oral steroids, and it has greatly reduced the need for Albuterol and use of his nebulizer. It made him a little hyper at first, but now that he has used it for a long time there is no difference in his behavior. (he still gets VERY hyper ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking the Flovent HFA inhaler once a day as prescribed for a little over 5 months now. It has not improved my asthma symptoms. I am still having to use my Albuterol rescue inhaler. In addition, I have had more colds and/or upper respiratory infections in the past 5 months than I've had in the past 5 or 6 years! I counted them up. Since November, I've had 7 total, every 2- ...

    My 5 year old has been on this med for a little over a year. Now only uses it in peak allergy months. Does cause a change in her mood and behavior for the first couple weeks, and makes her a bit hyper. But its not so bad as long as she can breathe. My other concern is that since beginning this med she has gain 10 pounds in just about 1 year.
