can anyone explain why this is different to brown one,is it stronger?

probably different medication, what are they called?

The orange one is likely called Flixotide(Fluticasone) an inhaled steroid used for prophylaxis of asthma symptoms, the brown ones are generally Budesonide or Beclomethasone also an inhaled steriod. ~BOth work int he same way but Flixotide is a bit newer and generally effective at lower doses. Hope this helps
