Advair Diskus (Fluticasone Propionate and Salmeterol) is a drug used to control and prevent breathing problems such as wheezing and shortness of breath caused by asthma or lung diseases. It is made up of two medications: fluticasone, a corticosteroid that reduces airway inflammation and salmeterol, a long-acting beta agonist that opens up said airways making the breathing process comfortable and easy. The combination of these two drugs do not increase the risk of serious asthma related breathing problems as using them individually could. Asthma patients may be reccomended this drug as an option when their symptoms are not well controlled with one asthma-control drug or if their symptoms require combination treatments. It's vital to learn how to use this medication properly and to use it regularly to gain its full effects. It's not fast acting and should not be used in the case of a sudden asthma attack.
Always follow your doctors instructions while taking Advair Diskus.
