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:

  • Asthma
  • 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.

How to use Seretide

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Use your Seretide every day until your doctor advises you to stop. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Do not stop taking Seretide or reduce the dose of Seretide without talking to your doctor first.

Seretide should be inhaled through the mouth into the lungs. For asthma

Adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over

  • Seretide Accuhaler 50/100 – One inhalation twice a day
  • Seretide Accuhaler 50/250 – One inhalation twice a day
  • Seretide Accuhaler 50/500 – One inhalation twice a day

Children 4 to 12 years of age

Seretide is not recommended for use in children below 4 years of age.

 

For adults with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

  • Seretide Accuhaler 50/500 – One inhalation twice a day

Your symptoms may become well controlled using Seretide twice a day. If so, your doctor may decide to reduce your dose to once a day. The dose may change to:

  • once at night – if you have night-time symptoms
  • once in the morning – if you have daytime symptoms.

It is very important to follow your doctor’s instructions on how many inhalations to take and how often to take your medicine. If you are using Seretide for asthma, your doctor will want to regularly check your symptoms. If your asthma or breathing gets worse tell your doctor straight away. You may find that you feel more wheezy, your chest feels tight more often or you may need to use more of your fast-acting ‘reliever’ medicine. If any of these happen, you should continue to take Seretide but do not increase the number of puffs you take. Your chest condition may be getting worse and you could become seriously ill. See your doctor as you may need additional treatment.

Instructions for use

  • Your doctor, nurse or pharmacist should show you how to use your inhaler. They should check how you use it from time to time. Not using the Seretide Accuhaler properly or as prescribed may mean that it will not help your asthma or COPD as it should.
  • The Accuhaler device holds blisters containing Seretide as a powder.
  • There is a counter on top of the Accuhaler which tells you how many doses are left. It counts down to 0. The numbers 5 to 0 will appear in red to warn you when there are only a few doses left. Once the counter shows 0, your inhaler is empty
