Brief Summary:

Azmacort Inhalation Aerosol is a metered-dose inhaler used for maintenance treatment of asthma and is not a bronchodilator and is not indicated for rapid relief of bronchospasm or other acute episodes of asthma.  The main ingredient is a inhaled corticosteroid.

Side Effects:

Particular care is needed in patients who are transferred from systemically taken (by mouth) corticosteroids to Azmacort Inhalation Aerosol because deaths due to adrenal insufficiency have occurred in asthmatic patients during and after transfer from systemic corticosteroids to aerosolized steroids in recommended doses.

Localized infections with Candida albicans (thrush) have occurred infrequently in the mouth and pharynx.

Other common side effects may include sinusitis, headache, back pain, diarrhea, vomiting, bursitis, dry mouth, rash, chest congestion and urinary tract infection.


Patients should use inhaled corticosteroids at regular intervals as directed. Significant improvement in asthma may occur by 1 week, but maximum benefit may not be achieved for 2 weeks or more. The patient should not increase the prescribed dosage but should contact the physician if symptoms do not improve or if the condition worsens.

NOTE:  Azmacort Contains CFC -12, a substance which harms public health and the environment by destroying ozone in the upper atmosphere.

What's New

Allergy and Asthma Associates has established the Food Allergy Center, the first and only one of its kind in Orange County, to focus exclusively on the diagnosis and now treatment of food allergy. We are now offering oral immunotherapy. The purpose of oral immunotherapy (OIT) is to decrease your sensitivity to allergy-causing foods, so that exposure to the offending food (peanut, milk, egg, tree nuts etc.) will result in fewer and less severe symptoms in the event of an accidental exposure.


What Our Patients Say About Us

  • When I first got diagnosed with asthma it started off as exercised induced but throughout the years it became worse than that. Just a wind would make me feel like I needed to take my inhaler, a change in the weather and I had to take a breathing treatment. It was really hard especially for being an athlete, because you don’t want anything holding you back from what you love to do...
