Fluticasone and Salmeterol (Advair)

A combination medication, fluticasone and salmeterol (Advair®) is often prescribed to treat airway spasms in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as to prevent them in people with asthma. The medication can make it easier for people with airway spasms to breathe by opening up the airways and allowing more air to get into and through the lungs.
 
Two different forms are available: the Advair Diskus®, which contains a dry powder, and the Advair® HFA inhaler, a more traditional inhaler. Each is typically used twice a day. Most people are able to use fluticasone and salmeterol without any problems. However, as with any medicine, side effects are possible, including upper respiratory tract infections, headaches, and sore throat.
