More facts about Generic Advair Diskus (Fluticasone / Salmeterol 250 mcg):
What is Advair Diskus?
Advair Diskus is a brand name of the inhaler used in asthma. It is based on two active substances Fluticasone plus Salmeterol. The substances and their combination are known from the early 1990s and therefore the same medication can be made by other pharmaceutical enterprises too but they are unable to use the same brand name. You can find other versions of the drug when your physician advises you to buy Advair Diskus under the names Cutivate, Flixonase, Flixotide, Flonase, Flovent Diskus, Flunase, Seretide, and others making sure to check the names of the active substances that must be Fluticasone/Salmeterol. The name of the active ingredient is always indicated on the package of the medication so you could never go wrong.
The combined substances are used for the therapy of people with bronchoconstrictive diseases who use long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonists and glucocorticosteroid inhalations but the effect is insufficient. This inhaler is a bronchodilator. Salmeterol is a selective long-acting beta2-adrenoreceptor agonist (acts for 12 hours) and Fluticasone is a glucocorticosteroid of local action. This combined inhaler is more effective than other, single-component inhalers, it is very effective in histamine-induced bronchospasm (allergic spasm) and causes a longer bronchodilation in comparison with the usual short-acting beta2-receptor agonists. It successfully cancels early and late allergic reactions. After a single dosage use, the hyperactivity of the bronchi is suppressed for thirty hours. Fluticasone is responsible for the well-pronounced anti-inflammatory effect that leads to the reduction of the symptoms intensity and number of exacerbations associated with airways obstruction.
What is the inhaler sold as Generic Advair Diskus?
Generic Advair Diskus is not an official or registered name. It is a collective term used for all preparations with the same composition, formula, and method of administration as the branded medication. As we have already mentioned, the formula was developed in the early 1990s and now it is no longer protected by the exclusive copyright which makes it possible for other drug producers to make the same medicines but sell them under different names. The collective name consisting of the word “generic” and the brand name is used to help people find the cheaper analog of the medication they need if they know only the brand name. The generics are cheaper for multiple reasons the poor quality not being one of them. Their makers do not develop the formula hence they save on the research. They also do not advertise or promote their medications which also contribute to the lower price. The goal for generic creations and distribution is to ensure the supply of the vital medications to all people who need them even if they do not have enough money for the expensive brand medications. You can without any reservations buy Generic Advair Diskus if your physician prescribes you the branded medicine. This way you can save a lot of money without compromising the quality and effectiveness of your treatment.

If within the period of the therapy with the inhaler the frequency of short-acting bronchodilators increases, it means that your condition deteriorates and you must inform about it your physician. Nevertheless, it is not recommended to abruptly discontinue the therapy. If for some reason you must stop using the preparation, you should ask your healthcare provider to prescribe you an alternative.
The optimal dosages of the preparation should be minimal to avoid systemic adverse reactions.
When the inhaler is used in children, the dynamics of children's growth must be followed regularly.
The medication is used as an inhaler only. The dosages are based on the prescribed daily dosage of Fluticasone based on the condition severity. Then the dosage must be gradually lowered to the lowest effective one. The therapy must be performed under a doctor’s supervision.
The recommended dosages are:
- For adults and kids older than twelve years, the dosage is 2 inhalations by 25 mcg/50 mcg twice daily or 2 inhalations 25 mcg/125 mcg twice daily or 2 inhalations 25 mcg Salmeterol/250 mcg Fluticasone twice daily.
