How Seretide Capsule works

Seretide 50mcg/100mcg Accuhaler is a combination of two medicines: Salmeterol and Fluticasone Propionate. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator which works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways. Fluticasone Propionate is a steroid. It works by stopping the release of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) of the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.

Expert Advice

  • Seretide 50mcg/100mcg Accuhaler is a combination of two medicines that opens the airways and makes it easier to breathe.
  • This medicine is for inhalation only. The tablet should not be swallowed.
  • It should be taken at the same time each day.
  • It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. Use your rescue inhaler to control sudden difficulty in breathing. 
  • Dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help.
  • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
  • Take the first dose of this medicine under medical supervision as it may cause wheezing or tightening of the airways (bronchospasm) immediately after using.
  • Your doctor may regularly monitor your  blood potassium level as low oxygen level in the blood (hypoxia) and medicines such as Seretide 50mcg/100mcg Accuhaler can lower blood potassium level.
  • Only miniscule amounts of Seretide 50mcg/100mcg Accuhaler may get absorbed into the bloodstream after inhalation. Hence, serious side effects are unlikely.

My ears most of the times get blocked which i need yo relive by some of chewing movements of mouth? Can this be a indication of poor control of asthma? How can I solve this?
