Advair Diskus (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Indications

Advair Diskus, generic name fluticasone propionate and salmeterol, is used to treat airway inflammation and constriction that cause asthma. This inhaler can be prescribed for patients four years of age and older.

This drug is also used as a maintenance treatment of airflow obstruction and to reduce exacerbations in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

Advair Diskus is not approved to provide relief for acute bronchospasm.

This prescription medication is a combination of a corticosteroid and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist. It has anti-inflammatory action, relaxes bronchial smooth muscle, and inhibits the release of mediators involved in the hypersensitivity response.
