Advair Diskus

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 1:06 pm

Advair is commonly used to treat airway spasms in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as to prevent them in people with asthma. Advair, a combination of two drugs, Flovent and Serevent, is inhaled through the use of a device called a diskus. This inhalation of Advair helps to treat asthma and chronic bronchitis.

Advair diskus is used by patients who require continuous treatment for the control of asthma. Due to the various possible side effects of using Advair, a proper prescription from your doctor is required as a precautionary measure. The use of the Advair diskus is not advisable for treating acute incidents of asthma. An overdose of the medicine calls for immediate medical attention.
