What is Salmeterol + fluticasone propionate? My Doctor prescribed me this inhaler and he said its for anti asthma. What's the difference of this inhaler to salbutamol? Does this have higher dosage or something?
There are reliever inhalers which work for up to 12 hours after taking each dose. They include salmeterol (brand name Serevent) and formoterol (brand name Atimos). Regards.
Hello and sorry for the late reply. Besides salbutamol, terbutaline is a reliever inhaler. Terbutaline often goes by the brand name Bricanyl. There are relievers which work for up to 12 hours after taking each dose. They include salmeterol (brand name Serevent) and formoterol (brand name Atimos). Please discuss these options with your doctor, he can guide you. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Symbicort® (budesonide/formoterol fumarate dehydrate) Inhalation Aerosol and Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol are pharmacologically fairly equally effective. Using Flovent® (fluticasone propionate) and Serevent® (salmeterol), which are contained in Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol, would be preferable.
Please don't take the Salmeterol inhaler AND the Advair. The advair already has a Salmeterol componet in it. This is not safe to use both the advair and the salmeterol.

Hello and sorry for the late reply. Ventolin or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>salbutamol</span> is a rescue inhaler, that means you take this when you have an episode of Asthma. There are reliever inhalers which work for up to 12 hours after taking each dose. They include salmeterol (brand name Serevent) and formoterol (brand name Atimos). There are preventive inhalers. The type of drug commonly used in preventer inhalers is a steroid. Steroids work by reducing the inflammation in the airways.
You and he/she will have to resort to other preparations, to include a different inhaled steroid, such as Flovent® HFA Inhalation Aerosol (fluticasone propionate), either alone or in combination with a long-acting bronchodilator, like Serevent® Inhalation Aerosol (salmeterol xinafoate) or Foradil® Aerolizer™ (formoterol fumarate inhalation powder), such a combination being either Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol or Symbicort® (budesonide/formoterol fumarat
In addition, a particular variation (arg16) in the ADRB2 gene has been shown in several studies to alter the body's response to beta-agonists, a type of medication used to treat asthma. Beta-agonists include albuterol, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>salbutamol</span>, and salmeterol. We all have two copies of the ADRB2 gene. A little less than 20% of the U.S. general population has two copies of this variation, one in each gene.
