FLUTICASONE+SALMETEROL is a respiratory medication primarily used to treat and prevent respiratory disorders like asthma attacks and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD). Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes).
FLUTICASONE+SALMETEROL is a combination of two medicines, namely: Salmeterol (bronchodilator) and Fluticasone. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles in the airways and increases airflow to the lungs. It makes breathing easier by widening the airways. Fluticasone belongs to the class of corticosteroids. It acts by blocking prostaglandins' production (chemical messengers) that cause inflammation (swelling) of the airways.
