Allergy and Asthma
Seretide Accuhaler 50mcg/100mcg 60D
Seretide contains two medicines, salmeterol and fluticasone propionate:
- Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator. Bronchodilators help the airways in the lungs to stay open. This makes it easier for air to get in and out. The effects last for at least 12 hours.
- Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid which reduces swelling and irritation in the lungs.
The doctor has prescribed this medicine to help prevent breathing problems such as:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Seretide Accuhaler, at a dose of 50/500 micrograms, reduces the number of flare ups of COPD symptoms. You must use Seretide every day as directed by your doctor. This will make sure that it works properly in controlling your asthma or COPD. Seretide helps to stop breathlessness and wheeziness coming on. However Seretide should not be used to relieve a sudden attack of breathlessness or wheezing. If this happens you need to use a fast-acting ‘reliever’ (‘rescue’) inhaler, such as salbutamol. You should always have your fast-acting ‘rescue’ inhaler with you.SKU: n/a
