Flovent Diskus (Fluticasone)
Fluvent Diskus contains Fluticasone. Fluticasone belongs to a type of drugs known as corticosteroids. Fluticasone is used to control and reduce symptoms such as wheezing and shortness of breath that are caused by asthma. It carries out its function by reducing swelling and inflammation of the airways in the lungs. This helps make breathing easier. With controlled symptoms of asthma, you can carry out normal activities of the day without having any time lost during school or work.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
