Serevent contains the active ingredient salmeterol which works to effectively manage and prevent the symptoms of asthma in the long-term. Serevent is most useful in helping to prevent breathing problems and asthma attacks. Known as a bronchodilator, the active ingredient, salmeterol (a form of medicine), can be taken through an Evohaler, Accuhaler or Diskhaler. These devices can be used as an add-on treatment alongside other inhalers, such as corticosteroids, but should not be used as a substitute for such medications. Serevent is a long-lasting preventative treatment, and so should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks.
The active ingredient in all Serevent inhalers, salmeterol is a long acting beta 2 agonist, which means it works on the beta 2 receptors in the lungs. Salmeterol stimulates these receptors, relaxing the muscles in the airways and allowing them to become relaxed and more open.
In asthma and COPD patients, this will help alleviate breathing problems. As well as this, because of the long lasting nature of salmeterol, it will also help to prevent future asthma attacks, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. The treatment gets to work within 10-15mins of use and can be active for up to 12 hours in the body.
Serevent inhalers come with a number of benefits that can be experienced when used correctly. These are:
Serevent is available as 3 different devices, all containing the same active ingredient salmeterol. The type of inhaler you are prescribed depends on how severe your asthma is and how effective other asthma-related medications have been for you, up to this point.
The Evohaler is the most commonly prescribed version of Serevent. It is a CFC free aerosol inhaler containing 25mcg of salmeterol per dose. This dosage will be prescribed mostly as an add-on treatment in patients whose asthma is not controlled by inhaled corticosteroids alone.
Serevent Diskhaler is a dry powder inhaler containing 50 mcg of salmeterol and lactose. It is frequently used in asthma sufferers who use inhaled corticosteroids but also require a long-acting beta agonist to treat the symptoms effectively.
Like the Diskhaler, Serevent Accuhaler also comes in a dry powder inhalation device, but contains a dosage of just 50mcg of salmeterol. It is used to treat asthma in patients who need a long-acting beta agonist.
Those suitable to use this treatment include children, teenagers and adults suffering from asthma or COPD, who require an effective reliever inhaler medication. Please be aware though, that as it is a prescription medication, it is only available for sale here for those over the age of 18.
You may be considered unsuitable for this medication if you have diabetes, thyrotoxicosis, heart disease or hypertension. It is always advised that you give full details of any medical problems or current medications you are taking, so that our doctors can make sure Serevent is safe for you to use. See the Serevent precautions section below for more information.
Serevent can increase the risk of asthma-related hospitalization in both children and teenagers. It is vital that children using Serevent for asthma use it alongside another long-term asthma control medication. Serevent shouldn't be given to a child below 4 years of age.
For a preventer inhaler such as Serevent, one inhalation is required twice daily. If necessary, the dosage may be increased to two inhalations twice daily, but always check with a doctor before making any adjustments.
