Seretide is a purple inhaler which prevents asthma attacks. It contains a bronchodilator as well as a corticosteroid. The bronchodilator Salmeterol dilates your airways and helps you breathe more easily. The corticosteroid Fluticasone prevents asthma symptoms by reducing swelling and irritation in your airways. Both ingredients are effective in preventing asthma symptoms. However, they are not suitable for treating acute symptoms. If you experience acute symptoms or an asthma attack, you need to use your reliever inhaler immediately.
The diskus Seretide inhaler contains the medication in the form of a very fine powder. Unlike other inhalers, it does not contain a liquid solution. The inhaler contains blisters which hold one dose of Seretide each. A counter on the side of the inhaler tells you how many doses are left in the inhaler. To take an inhalation, follow these steps carefully:
How often you need to use your seretide inhaler depends on your condition and how effective your treatment proves. Your GP will tell you how often you need to use Seretide and how many inhalations you need to take each time. The most common dosage is one inhalation twice a day, one in the morning and one in the evening.
Your GP will adjust the number of inhalations if your conditions improves or worsens. Always speak to your GP if you notice a change in your symptoms or if you feel that your treatment is not effective enough.
Seretide diskus contains 50 micrograms salmeterol and, depending on the dosage, 100, 250 or 500 micrograms fluticasone propionate. It also contains lactose monohydrate. The amount of lactose in Seretide does not usually cause problems for lactose intolerant patients.
