How Does Seretide Work?


Seretide accuhaler is an asthma inhaler which contains two medicines. One ingredient is the long-acting bronchodilator salmeterol. Salmeterol keeps your airways open and prevents asthma symptoms. The second medicine is fluticasone. Fluticasone is a corticosteroid, which reduces inflammation and the swelling in your airways. Seretide is a purple inhaler and it needs to be used every day.

The purple inhaler contains two ingredients which prevent asthma attacks and symptoms. The two medicines are Salmeterol and Fluticasone.

Salmeterol

Salmeterol is often referred to as a bronchodilator, because it dilates your airways. It is a long-acting medicine and its effect lasts for approximately twelve hours. It is used to prevent asthma and is not suitable as a treatment for acute symptoms.

Fluticasone

Fluticasone belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. It relieves asthma by reducing the swelling in your airways and the irritation in your lungs. Fluticasone propionate is also used to treat allergic rhinitis (nasal congestion caused by an allergic reaction).

In combination, the two ingredients in your Seretide inhaler are very effective at preventing asthma symptoms and dangerous asthma attacks. In order to work, Seretide has to be used on a daily basis. The purple inhaler does not help control acute symptoms, so you need to keep a blue reliever inhaler at hand in case you experience an attack.

FAQ

  • Correct inhaler use

    Stand or sit upright when using your inhaler. Remove the mouthpiece cover and check inside to ensure it's clean. Shake the inhaler 4-5 times.

    Hold the inhaler upright with your thumb on the base and fingers on the top of the canister – your hand should make a C shape. Breathe out as far as is comfortable and place the mouthpiece in your mouth, between your teeth. Close your lips around it and don't bite.

    Breathe in through your mouth - just after you start to breathe in, press down on the top of the canister to release a puff of medicine. Continue breathing in steadily and deeply. Hold your breath for as long as is comfortable.

    Wait 30 seconds and repeat to take another puff. Replace the mouthpiece cover after use.
