Advair Discus

Were you looking for information about Advair? Advair Discus is a common misspelling and variation of Advair.
 
Advair® (fluticasone and salmeterol), a medication that is available by prescription, is commonly used to treat and prevent airway spasms due to asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The medication comes in two forms -- the Advair Diskus® and the Advair® HFA inhaler. Both versions of Advair are usually taken twice a day, with about 12 hours in between doses.
 
The Diskus is used differently than older inhalers. It contains small foil pockets that contain the powder. These pockets are punctured (by sliding the lever until it clicks), and the powder is inhaled using your own breath. This product may be difficult to use at first, so it's important that you practice until you get the hang of it.
 
A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking the medication include high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and heart disease.
