ALVESCO (ciclesonide) Inhalation Aerosol is a type of long-term maintenance asthma treatment known as an inhaled corticosteroid (or ICS). It is used for the long-term maintenance treatment of asthma in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older.
As a controller medicine, ALVESCO needs to be used regularly, as directed by your healthcare provider. If you or your child has asthma, speak with your doctor about whether ALVESCO could be appropriate for you throughout your journey with asthma.
ALVESCO is NOT for fast relief of sudden symptoms or shortness of breath during an asthma attack. For sudden symptoms, it's important to use a fast-acting bronchodilator, such as a levalbuterol inhaler.1
