What is Seretide

Seretide comprise two drugs: salmeterol and fluticasone. Fluticasone belongs to a class of medicines known as steroids. Steroids help to reduce inflammation. Salmeterol on the other hand belongs to a class of medicines known as long-acting beta agonists and it helps to relax the air passage in the lungs. Both constituents in Seretide work together to help keep the air passage open making easier to breathe.

Seretide helps in preventing you against the attacks of asthma by providing you with fast relief from your symptoms once an attack has started. Never forget to use your fast-acting reliever inhaler to be able to reduce an attack of breathlessness or asthma.

Seretide should be used regularly, even when you have got no asthma symptoms, to alleviate lungs inflammation and to help keep the airways open.
