Advair Diskus Inhl
Advair® (fluticasone and salmeterol) is a medication used for preventing airway spasms in people who have asthma. This prescription medication is also used to treat airway spasms in people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The medication comes in two forms: the Advair Diskus® inhaler (Advair Diskus inhl) and the Advair® HFA inhaler. The Advair Diskus is approved for both asthma and COPD, while the Advair HFA inhaler is only approved for asthma.
Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with the Advair Diskus or the Advair HFA inhaler, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements). Possible side effects may include headaches, coughing, and a sore throat.
Advair does not work quickly, and it should not be used for treating an asthma attack. Rather, it is used to prevent asthma attacks.
