BACKGROUND A study was performed to compare the adrenal suppression caused by inhaled fluticasone propionate and budesonide on a microgram equivalent basis, each given by metered dose inhaler to asthmatic patients. METHODS Twelve asthmatic patients of mean age 29.9 years, with a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) 92.9% predicted and forced expiratory flow 25-75% (FEF25-75) 69.5% predicted, on less than or equal to 400 micrograms/day inhaled corticosteroid, were studied in a double… CONTINUE READING
