Researches on medicines are ever-continued. So in asthma treatment. Seretide is the new name in the market.
Seretide is an asthma inhaler designed for sufferers who are not getting relief from low to moderate doses of inhaled steroids. Seretide is used to help with breathing problems in people who need regular treatment.
It is very important that you use your Seretide every day, as instructed by your doctor. This will help you to keep free of symptoms throughout the day and night.
Seretide should not be used to relieve a sudden attack of breathlessness or wheezing.
Before you start to use it, you must tell your doctor if:
- You are allergic to foods, preservatives or any other medicines
- You are pregnant or likely to become pregnant
- You are breast-feeding
- You have ever had thrush in your mouth
- You are being or have ever been treated for tuberculosis (TB)
- You are undergoing treatment for a thyroid condition
- You are undergoing treatment for high blood pressure or a heart problem.
The most common side effect from using Seretide are upper respiratory tract infections, yeast infections of the mouth, nausea, headaches, muscle and bone pain and bronchitis.
Seretide Accuhaler contains Fluticasone + Salmeterol: Fluticasone, a corticosteroid, is the anti-inflammatory element in the composition, while salmeterol treats blockage of the airways. Together, they soothe the symptoms of coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath better than either fluticasone or salmeterol taken on its own.
