Each blister on the strip contains a white powder mix of micronized fluticasone propionate (50, 100, or 250 mcg) in 12.5 mg of formulation containing lactose monohydrate (which contains milk proteins).

Relenza is packaged in disk-shaped foil packs that contain 4 blisters of medicine. These disks are placed into a device called a DISKHALER that you will use to inhale the medicine. The device opens and loads a blister of inhalation powder each time you use the inhaler.

  1. We've used topical mometasone--does it have the same risk factor?

  2. Consult the if American PDR- Physicians' Desk Reference. If Canadian CPS- Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties These are large books with information on various human drugs. Your pharmacist and Doctor should have these books. My library does as well, these books also have manufacture contact information, so should your prescription. Look for lactose, as lactose is the sugar found in milk, lactose is used in MANY drugs.
