Taking flovent tablet for years. Is it safe to use flovent inhaler?

I am 56 years old and have been prescribed Flovent for about 15 years. Even though I have insurance , the cost of Flovent is very expensive. My question is I just bought the inhaler Flohale which is suppose to be the ingredient equivalent to Flovent except a lot cheaper. I haven't used it yet. Can I trust it to be safe to use? Thank you.
