Were you looking for information about Advair Diskus? Advair Disk is a common misspelling of Advair Diskus.
The Advair® Diskus (fluticasone and salmeterol) is a medication licensed to treat airway spasms caused by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This prescription medication is also used to prevent airway spasms in people who have asthma. However, it does not work quickly and should not be used for treating an asthma attack after it has started. The Advair Diskus is used differently than older inhalers. It contains small foil pockets that are filled with powder. These pockets are punctured and the powder is inhaled using your own breath. Possible side effects can include headaches, a sore throat, and coughing.
