Advair price, dosage, interaction, warnings
Generic Advair is prescribed to control and prevent the symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and shortness of breath. It is also used to control and prevent the symptoms of COPDs – such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It contains two active drugs – Fluticasone and Salmeterol. Fluticasone is a corticosteroid, while Salmeterol is a long-acting beta agonist.
Fluticasone works by reducing the swelling and irritation of the airways. Salmeterol works by opening the airways in the lungs so that you can breathe easier. Generic Advair is available in the form of aerosol inhaler, which is prescribed to control and prevent the symptoms of breathing issues. It is to be used regularly. Remember, it should not be used to get quick relief from a sudden asthma attack. If an asthma attack occurs, you need to use quick-relief inhaler containing Salbutamol.
