Were you looking for information on Advair? Atver is a common misspelling of Advair.
 
Advair® is typically used to prevent airway spasms in people with asthma. It can also be used to treat such spasms in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Advair works by opening up the airways, allowing more air to get into and through the lungs, which makes breathing easier. The medication comes in two forms: the Advair Diskus®, which contains a dry powder, and the Advair® HFA inhaler, which is a more traditional inhaler. Possible side effects include upper respiratory tract infections, headaches, and sore throat.
