SERETIDE Accuhaler -50/500 (Fluticasone/Salmeterol)
Advair-500 (Salmeterol / Fluticasone) is a corticosteroid and bronchodilator combination used to treat and prevent or decrease the symptoms of asthma (ie: wheezing, trouble breathing), and also chronic lung disease (ie: emphysema, bronchitis, – COPD). Advair Diskus works by opening the airways in the lungs (decreases bronchiolar swelling and causes muscle relaxation). It may also be used to treat other breathing conditions as determined by your doctor. Advair Diskus WILL NOT STOP an asthma attack once one has started; use other quick-relief medicines / inhalers for sudden shortness of breath or asthma attacks.
