More info about Advair® from GSK—
ADVAIR treats two of the main causes of asthma symptoms—airway constriction and airway inflammation—to help prevent symptoms in the first place. Results may vary. ADVAIR is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and 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.
ADVAIR should be used only if your doctor decides that your asthma is not well controlled with a long-term asthma control medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid.
ADVAIR DISKUS is a prescription medicine used to treat asthma in patients 4 years and older. ADVAIR HFA is a prescription medicine used to treat asthma in patients 12 years and older. ADVAIR is not for adults and children with asthma who are well controlled with an asthma control medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine. ADVAIR is for adults and children with asthma who need both an ICS and long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicine.
