Seretide is indicated in the regular treatment of asthma where use of a combination product (long- acting β2 agonist and inhaled corticosteroid) is appropriate:
– patients not adequately controlled with inhaled corticosteroids and ‘as needed’ inhaled short-acting β2 agonist.
– patients already adequately controlled on both inhaled corticosteroid and long-acting β2 agonist.
How many puffs are in Seretide inhaler?
The usual dose is two puffs from your SERETIDE MDI 50/25 (50 micrograms of fluticasone propionate and 25 micrograms of salmeterol) twice a day.
What happens if you stop taking Seretide?
Do not stop or suddenly reduce your dose of Seretide. This could make your breathing worse. In addition, if you suddenly stop taking Seretide or reduce your dose of Seretide this may (very rarely) cause you to have problems with your adrenal gland (adrenal insufficiency) which sometimes causes side effects.
