ADVAIR treats two of the leading causes of asthma symptoms—airway constriction and airway inflammation—to help prevent symptoms in the first place. Results may vary. People do not use ADVAIR to relieve sudden breathing problems, and it won’t replace a rescue inhaler.
If you are on a long-term asthma control medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid, and your symptoms keep coming back, talk to your doctor and find out if ADVAIR may be right for you.
Your doctor should determine that a long-term asthma control medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid, is not adequately controlling your asthma before using ADVAIR.
Doctors prescribe the ADVAIR DISKUS to treat asthma in patients four years and older, and they prescribe ADVAIR HFA to treat asthma in patients 12 years and older. Patients who are well-controlled with an asthma control medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine, should not use ADVAIR. The ADVAIR is for adults and children with asthma who need both an ICS and long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicine.
