Aerobid Side Effects
Some of the most common Aerobid side effects include nausea or vomiting, a sore throat, and upper respiratory tract infections. A few less common side effects of Aerobid include weight gain, a bloody nose, and a dry throat. If you experience more serious side effects of Aerobid -- such as depression, high blood pressure, or a rapid heart rate -- be sure to let your healthcare provider know immediately.
As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Aerobid® (flunisolide inhaler); however, not everyone who uses the inhaler will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate Aerobid well. When side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Aerobid. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Aerobid side effects with you.)
Aerobid inhalers will not be made, dispensed, or sold in the United States after June 30, 2011. Aerobid contains chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chemicals that deplete the ozone layer. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set this final date for the medication in order to comply with the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer. People taking Aerobid should ask their healthcare providers about alternatives to Aerobid, keeping in mind that it is possible that Aerobid may become unavailable in pharmacies earlier than the final date.
