Asthma and lung diseases are very serious medical problems that can actually cause death in certain situations if not well controlled with medications.
What medications and Inhalors do you use to help control your asthma?
Do you know your medications and what they are doing for you?
Fluticasone and Salmeterol (Advair Diskus)
"Inhaled fluticasone belongs to the family of medicines known as corticosteroids (cortisone-like medicines). It works by preventing certain cells in the lungs and breathing passages from releasing substances that cause asthma symptoms. It will not relieve an asthma attack that has already started.
Inhaled salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator and it belongs to the family of medicines known as bronchodilators. Bronchodilators are medicines that are breathed in through the mouth to open up the bronchial tubes (air passages) of the lungs. Salmeterol is different than other bronchodilators because it does not act quickly enough to relieve an asthma attack that has already started."
