Can using Flovent Diskus affect my immune system?

Flovent Diskus could increase your risk for certain infections. In addition, it can mask the symptoms of infections, which means you may have one and not know it. Report any symptoms of infection (such as persistent sore throat/fever/cough) that occur during treatment.

Avoid exposure to chicken pox or the measles while taking this medication. If you are exposed to these infections, talk to your doctor right away about preventive treatments that might be available. Chicken pox and the measles can have a more serious, or even fatal, course in susceptible children or adults using corticosteroids.

Ask your pharmacist or doctor about other indications that you may be getting sick.
