Seretide for Asthma

With Seretide you can have symptom-free days for most of the year, allowing you to get on with the activities you enjoy.1

Are you reaching for your blue "reliever" inhaler more than 3 times per week? It's likely your asthma isn't under control. A move to Seretide, the purple inhaler, could be the answer.


Seretide is a 2-in-1 inhaler that contains

Seretide 2-in-1 inhaler, for asthma treatment, contains two types of medication which:

  1. Treat lung inflammation and help prevent asthma by using the active ingredient in the orange Flixotide inhaler (fluticasone propionate, an Inhaled Corticosteroid).
  2. Relax the muscles in the air passages, opening the airways and making it easier for air to get in and out of the lungs. The asthma symptoms are controlled for at least 12 hours, and when taken regularly it helps keep the air passages open, by using the active ingredient in the green Serevent inhaler (salmeterol xinafoate, a Long-Acting Bronchodilator).

Note: Seretide should not be used to relieve a sudden attack of breathlessness or wheezing. If you get this sort of attack you must use a quick acting inhaler (e.g. Ventolin) also known as a reliever puffer. Always carry your blue Ventolin reliever inhaler with you.

When you regularly take Seretide twice a day, every day, the two medicines combine to help control asthma
long-term, meaning you donít have to live with wheezing, coughing and sleepless nights.2,3
