What is Advair HFA?
Advair HFA, with the generic name fluticasone propionate and salmeterol, is an oral inhalation indicated to treat asthma among patients 12 years of age and older. It prevents and controls symptoms, including wheezing and shortness of breath. Note that this medication is not indicated for the relief of acute breathing symptoms.
This inhalation contains a synthetic trifluorinated corticosteroid that has an anti-inflammatory effect through its vast range of action on multiple cell types and mediators. It also contains a selective long-acting beta-agonist that relaxes bronchial smooth muscle and inhibits the release of immediate hypersensitivity mediators from mast cells. This is available in Advair HFA 250/50 mcg (equivalent to Advair HFA 230/21 mcg), Advair HFA 125/25 mcg (equivalent to Advair HFA 115/21 mcg), and Advair HFA 50/25 mcg (equivalent to Advair HFA 45/21 mcg) inhalation aerosols.
