  • Sirdupla Evohaler

    Sirdupla contains two medicines, salmeterol and fluticasone propionate: • Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator. Bronchodilators help the airways in the lungs to stay open. This makes it easier for air to get in and out. The effects last for at least 12 hours. • Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid which reduces swelling and irritation in the lungs. You must use Seretide every day as directed by your doctor. This will make sure that it works properly in controlling your asthma. Sirdupla helps to stop breathlessness and wheeziness coming on. However Sirdupla should not be used to relieve a sudden attack of breathlessness or wheezing. If this happens you need to use a fast-acting ‘reliever’ (‘rescue’) inhaler, such as salbutamol. You should always have your fastacting‘rescue’ inhaler with you. See our other Asthma products, here.

  • 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.

    Symptoms
    The main symptoms of asthma are:

    wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing)
    breathlessness
    a tight chest, which may feel like a band is tightening around it
    coughing
    The symptoms can sometimes get temporarily worse. This is known as an asthma attack.

    Several conditions can cause similar symptoms, so it’s important to get a proper diagnosis and correct treatment.

    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.
    • Inflammation of sinuses (a feeling of tension or fullness in the nose, cheeks and behind the eyes,
    sometimes with a throbbing ache)
    • A reduction in the amount of potassium in the blood (you may get an uneven heartbeat, muscle
    weakness, cramp).

    For a complete list of side effects see the patient information leaflet.
