ARNUITY has been shown to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. Your results may vary. Talk to your healthcare provider to see if ARNUITY is right for you.


  • What is ARNUITY?

    • ARNUITY is a prescription inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine taken as 1 inhalation, once daily, to prevent and control symptoms of asthma for better breathing in adults and children aged 5 years and older.
    • ARNUITY is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler. Always have a rescue inhaler, such as albuterol, with you to treat sudden breathing problems.

    ARNUITY should be taken once a day, at the same time each day. Have a plan. Make ARNUITY part of your personal health routine by pairing it with another daily activity──like brushing your teeth at bedtime or putting in your contact lenses. Find what works best for you and stick with it.

    ARNUITY has been shown to improve breathing all day and all night. It may take up to 2 weeks or longer after starting ARNUITY to see maximum benefit. Your results may vary.

    You can REACT to asthma symptoms or you can also help CONTROL them.

    As you work with your healthcare provider to manage your asthma symptoms, it’s important to understand the differences between a rescue medicine like albuterol and a long-term controller medicine like ARNUITY.

  • How ARNUITY works

    ARNUITY contains a medicine called fluticasone furoate, which is an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine. ICS medicines help prevent symptoms of asthma by reducing airway inflammation. Inflammation can make your airways more sensitive and more narrow than usual, making it harder to breathe. The exact mechanism of how ICSs such as ARNUITY work in asthma is not known.

    ARNUITY is not for, and should not be used to treat, sudden symptoms of asthma. ARNUITY won’t replace a rescue inhaler. ARNUITY is available by prescription only.

    It may take up to 2 weeks or longer after starting ARNUITY to see maximum benefit. Your results may vary.

    Ask your healthcare provider if ARNUITY may be right for you.

  • How to use ARNUITY

    For full instructions on how to use ARNUITY, and other important information, please see the complete Prescribing Information and Patient Information Leaflet for ARNUITY. You can also ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist for more information.


  • Who should not use ARNUITY?

    Do not use ARNUITY:

    • to treat sudden symptoms of asthma.
    • if you have a severe allergy to milk proteins. Ask your healthcare provider if you are not sure.
    • if you are allergic to fluticasone furoate or any of the ingredients in ARNUITY. See below for “What are the ingredients in ARNUITY?”
  • What should I tell my healthcare provider before using ARNUITY?

    Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

    • have liver problems.
    • have weak bones (osteoporosis).
    • have an immune system problem.
    • have eye problems such as glaucoma, increased pressure in your eye, cataracts, or other changes in vision.
    • are allergic to milk proteins.
    • have any type of viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infection.
    • are exposed to chickenpox or measles.
    • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if ARNUITY may harm your unborn baby.
    • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if the medicine in ARNUITY passes into your milk and if it can harm your baby.

    Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. ARNUITY and certain other medicines may interact with each other. This may cause serious side effects. Especially, tell your healthcare provider if you take antifungal, anti-HIV, or any other corticosteroid medicines. Know the medicines you take. Keep a list of them to show your healthcare provider and pharmacist when you get a new medicine.

  • What are the possible side effects with ARNUITY?

    ARNUITY can cause serious side effects, including:

    • fungal infection in your mouth or throat (thrush). Rinse your mouth with water without swallowing after using ARNUITY to help reduce your chance of getting thrush.
    • weakened immune system and increased chance of getting infections (immunosuppression)
    • reduced adrenal function (adrenal insufficiency). Adrenal insufficiency is a condition where the adrenal glands do not make enough steroid hormones. This can happen when you stop taking oral corticosteroid medicines (such as prednisone) and start taking a medicine containing an ICS (such as ARNUITY). During this transition period, when your body is under stress from fever, trauma (such as a car accident), infection, surgery, or worse asthma symptoms, adrenal insufficiency can get worse and may cause death. Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include:
      • feeling tired
      • lack of energy
      • weakness
      • nausea and vomiting
      • low blood pressure (hypotension)
    • sudden breathing problems immediately after inhaling your medicine. If you have sudden breathing problems immediately after inhaling your medicine, stop using ARNUITY and call your healthcare provider right away.
    • serious allergic reactions. Call your healthcare provider or get emergency medical care if you get any of the following symptoms of a serious allergic reaction:
      • rash
      • hives
      • swelling of your face, mouth, and tongue
      • breathing problems
    • bone thinning or weakness (osteoporosis).
    • slow growth in children and adolescents. A child’s or adolescent’s growth should be checked often.
    • eye problems, including glaucoma, increased pressure in your eye, cataracts, or other changes in vision. You should have regular eye exams while using ARNUITY.

    Common side effects of ARNUITY include:

    • runny nose and sore throat
    • headache
    • breathing problems (bronchitis)
    • flu

    These are not all the possible side effects of ARNUITY. 

    Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

  • Can ARNUITY help me breathe better?

    In clinical studies, ARNUITY once daily has been proven to improve breathing for a full 24 hours, based on lung function measurements following the last dose of ARNUITY. Your results may vary.

  • Can ARNUITY reduce how frequently I use my rescue inhaler?

    In clinical studies, patients using ARNUITY had more days without the need for a rescue inhaler (albuterol). Your results may vary.

  • What are the ingredients in ARNUITY?

    Active ingredients: fluticasone furoate
    Inactive ingredients: lactose monohydrate (contains milk proteins)

  • What is asthma?

    Asthma is a serious lung disease, and inflammation of your airways is a major factor. Inflammation can make your airways more sensitive and more narrow than usual, making it harder to breathe. If the inflammation caused by your asthma isn’t treated correctly, your symptoms may get worse. It is important to monitor your symptoms so that you can recognize when they are getting worse.

    Some days you may feel great, with no symptoms at all. That doesn’t mean your asthma has gone away. You can’t cure asthma, but working along with your healthcare provider, you can learn to manage it. Learning how to manage your asthma may help you keep it under control.
