Flovent and albuterol are both medications used to help prevent, and lessen the severity, of asthma attacks. Both are dispensed in an aerosol inhaler that you breathe in

See all 179 questions about Asthma mouth. Flovent is the brand name for fluticasone and it is a corticosteroid. Its main purpose is to lessen the chest pain, difficulty breathing, and wheezing associated with asthma. Albuterol is a bronchodilator used to treat many of the same issues as Flovent, but it can also be used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Albuterol comes in a syrup, tablet, or as a suspension in an inhaler. Albuterol works by causing the passages to the lung to relax and open, which makes breathing easier. Flovent works by making breathing easier by decreasing the swelling in the passages
