The cause of asthma is still somewhat of a mystery to the experts, but what they do know is that it runs in families and is more common in those with allergies, although not everyone with allergies develops asthma. Pollution may also be a cause of asthma as your immune system detects the fumes, smoke, and other pollutants as a threat so your body tries to protect you.
Advair HFA Inhaler or generic Fluticasone Propionate/Salmeterol Xinafoate is a long-acting beta-agonist (LABA) that helps reduce asthma attacks but will not do anything for an attack in progress. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
Fluticasone Propionate is a corticosteroid that will work to decrease certain immune responses in your body in order to reduce the inflammation in your airways. Salmeterol Xinafoate is a beta-2 agonist bronchodilator that will stimulate the beta-2 receptors, resulting in the smooth muscle cells lining your airways to relax so your breathing is not constricted. Advair HFA Inhaler is not a cure for asthma but it is effective at decreasing the number of asthma attacks you have.
Advair HFA Inhaler is available by prescription to those 12 years and older and usually recommended for those who do not have their asthma under control. LABA medications, including Advair HFA Inhaler, have shown to be very successful in improving control of your wheezing and shortness of breath. This means there are less days missed from work or school, less night-time breathing interruptions, and fewer times you require a rescue inhaler for a sudden attack. You will still need to have a rescue inhaler close at hand as Advair HFA Inhaler is long-lasting but not fast-acting.
Ask your doctor about any risks to using Advair HFA Inhaler if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and tell your doctor about any current OTC or Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, to determine if Advair HFA Inhaler is safe for you to use.
Be patient when you start using Advair HFA Inhaler as it could take 1 week or more before you will benefit from the effects of this medication. You should avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task considered risky until you know how your body will react to Advair HFA Inhaler.
Inform medical staff you are using Advair HFA Inhaler if you are scheduled for any dental or surgical procedures. The ingredients of Advair HFA Inhaler may affect your blood glucose levels so those with diabetes should test their blood more often.
