Seretide 250

The Seretide 250 evohaler is typically used to treat asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). It contains two ingredients called Salmeterol and Fluticasone:

  • A long-acting bronchodilator, Salmeterol, helps keep airways in the lungs open. Allows air to easily get in and out, this can last for up to twelve hours.
  • A corticosteroid called fluticasone propionate helps reduce any swelling or irritation in the lungs.

Seretide 250 is a preventer inhaler and not a reliever inhaler. It should be used to stop any breathlessness or wheeziness from coming on, and not be used to relieve a sudden attack.

Seretide 250 can be bought as a single inhaler, costing £52.99 with free delivery.

Seretide Accuhaler

Instead of a metered dose inhaler, where the inhaler is pressed and a measured dose is released through the mouthpiece, a Seretide accuhaler is breath activated. This means that the Seretide accuhaler will release a dose of medication once you’ve inhale on the mouthpiece.

The Seretide Accuhaler comes in three strengths, 100mcg, 250mcg and 500mcg. My Pharmacy has all three strengths available for purchase each priced at £31.49, £44.99, £47.99 respectively.

Seretide Evohaler

The Seretide Evohaler is used to control a person’s asthma when using a regular preventer inhaler isn’t working out. A Seretide Evohaler won’t cure a person’s asthma, but it helps manage and control it.

Using the Seretide Evohaler regularly, even when no asthma symptoms are present, helps keep inflammation in the lungs down, whilst also keeping airways open.

As well as being used as a preventer inhaler, Seretide Evohaler/Seretide Accuhaler can be used to treat Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Severe cases who experience repeated attacks of breathlessness can use it to help prevent and relieve symptoms.

Seretide 125

As well as coming in strengths of Seretide 50 and Seretide 250 Evohaler, Seretide 125 is available as a middle strength option. Each strength indicates the amount of fluticasone propionate micrograms.

Seretide 50

Seretide 50 is the lowest strength available at My Pharmacy. The dose of a Seretide Evohaler should be titrated to the lowest dose at which effective control of asthma symptoms are maintained. A higher dose may be needed, such as Seretide 125 or Seretide 250 Evohaler.

Seretide 50 is available for £35.99 with the option of Royal Mail or DPD delivery.

Seretide During Pregnancy

Seretide during pregnancy should be talked about during a doctor’s visit. If you are pregnant or currently breastfeeding, advice should be taken from a doctor or pharmacist before taking Seretide during pregnancy.

Taking Seretide during pregnancy should only be considered if the expected benefit to the mother outweighs any risks to the fetus. To maintain adequate asthma control during pregnancy, the lowest possible dose of Seretide Inhaler should be used.

Seretide COPD Dose

Seretide COPD dose for symptomatic treatment of patients with moderate to severe COPD:

  • 2 inhalations of Seretide 125 twice daily
  • For patients who require any additional symptomatic control replace the Seretide 125 with Seretide 250 strength.
  • The maximum daily dose is 2 inhalations of Seretide 250 twice daily.

For further information pertaining to the correct Seretide COPD dose, discuss with your doctor what the best course of action would be.

Taking a higher than needed Seretide COPD dose could lead to unnecessary side effects.

Seretide Asthma Dose

Seretide Asthma dose for Adults, adolescents and children ages four to twelve years old:

Adults and adolescents aged twelve years and over

  • Seretide 50 – two puffs twice a day
  • Seretide 125 – two puffs twice a day
  • Seretide 250 – two puffs twice a day

Children four to twelve years old

  • Seretide 50 – two puffs twice a day
  • Seretide is not recommended for use in children below the age of four

Asthma symptoms may become well controlled using a Seretide asthma dose twice a day. If this is the case, your doctor may consider changing or reducing the Seretide asthma dose to once a day.

Seretide Depression

Seretide depression is certainly a reported side effect when taking a Seretide inhaler. The frequency is currently not known and should be carefully considered if a person currently has depression or has in the past.

Depression can occur when taking other inhalers and not just Seretide. It is believed this happens because of a group of medicines corticosteroids. They have been associated with a decrease in serotonin levels, which helps contribute to Seretide depression.

The effects of Seretide depression are more likely to occur in children.

Seretide Weight Gain

Seretide weight gain can occur, but this is not because of the inhaler itself. Asthma inhalers contain a low dose of steroid (corticosteroids) that helps lower inflammation in the lungs. Whilst use an inhaler doesn’t directly cause weight gain, one of the side effects of corticosteroids is increased hunger.

As long as a person continues to eat the same amount as they did before starting the inhaler, no Seretide weight gain should happen. The steroids themselves don’t cause weight gain.

Seretide Alternative

The Seretide Evohaler is one of many different inhaler and asthma treatments we have available at My Pharmacy. Before changing inhalers you should consult with your doctor and try to find the best Seretide alternative for you and your asthma severity.

You may want to consider some of the following as a Seretide alternative:

Asthma

Asthma is a common lung condition that causes occasional breathing difficulties.

It affects people of all ages and often starts in childhood, although it can also develop for the first time in adults.

There’s currently no cure, but there are simple treatments that can help keep the symptoms under control so it doesn’t have a big impact on your life.

Treatments

The main types are:

reliever inhalers – used when needed to quickly relieve asthma symptoms for a short time (e.g salbutamol)
preventer inhalers (steroid) – used every day to prevent asthma symptoms occurring
Some people also need to take tablets.

Causes and triggers

Asthma is caused by swelling (inflammation) of the breathing tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. This makes the tubes highly sensitive, so they temporarily narrow.

It may occur randomly or after exposure to a trigger. Common asthma triggers include:

allergies – to house dust mites, animal fur or pollen, for example
smoke, pollution and cold air
exercise
infections like colds or flu
Identifying and avoiding your asthma triggers can help you keep your symptoms under control.

Side Effects

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. To reduce
the chance of side effects, your doctor will prescribe the lowest dose of Seretide to control your
asthma.
Allergic reactions: you may notice your breathing suddenly gets worse immediately after using
Seretide. You may be very wheezy and cough or be short of breath. You may also notice itching, a
rash (hives) and swelling (usually of the face, lips, tongue or throat), or you may suddenly feel that
your heart is beating very fast or you feel faint and light headed (which may lead to collapse or loss of
consciousness). If you get any of these effects or if they happen suddenly after using Seretide, stop
using Seretide and tell your doctor straight away. Allergic reactions to Seretide are uncommon
(they affect less than 1 person in 100).
Other side effects are listed below:
Very Common (affects more than 1 person in 10)
• Headache – this usually gets better as treatment continues.
• Increased number of colds have been reported in patients with COPD.
Common (affects less than 1 person in 10)
• Thrush (sore, creamy-yellow, raised patches) in the mouth and throat. Also sore tongue and hoarse
voice and throat irritation. Rinsing your mouth out with water and spitting it out immediately
and/or brushing your teeth after taking each dose of your medicine may help. Your doctor may
prescribe an anti-fungal medication to treat the thrush.
• Aching, swollen joints and muscle pain.
• Muscle cramps.
The following side effects have also been reported in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease (COPD):
• Pneumonia and bronchitis (lung infection). Tell your doctor if you notice any of the following
symptoms: increase in sputum production, change in sputum colour, fever, chills, increased cough,
increased breathing problems.
• Bruising and fractures.

sometimes with a throbbing ache)

weakness, cramp).
