The medications are not equivalent since Flovent only contains a steroid
, and Dulera contains both a steroid and a Beta agonist or bronchodilator
, and if she has not had that medication before, it may be "too much" medication for her asthma. I would encourage you to go to a local pharmacy and get the generic of Flovent, which is fluticasone
propionate; if you could get the steroid only on Dulera, called mometasone
, that would be fine.
