Choosing flovent or qvar?

My doctor is letting me choose between flovent and qvar to take with my Symbicort. Which works better? I'm still trying to get off prednisone.

Hi, interesting to see what others think.  Some of our members are out ill .. hoping others will stop by.   All things maybe remaining equal, I'd see which one is less $ with your co-pay and/or which one gives out free samples to your Dr to get some.

Two of my four have asthma and I'd always load up on the free samples ... used to feel funny at first then realized .. hey, why not .... the copays are generallyt in the higher tier for these meds!  Usually the samples are 2 weeks vs a full month; otherwise exactly the same!

So glad to help!!!  Keep us posted.
