What Seratide Accuhaler/Evohaler are and what they are used for:
The inhaler is called an "Evohaler" or "Accuhaler" as opposed to "inhaler" - The reason that "Evohaler" or "Accuhaler" have been used in the brand name is that the names identify the products as being free of any CFC propellants. Each product is also inhaled in different ways. The "Evohaler" is a normal inhaler device. The "Accuhaler" is a dry powder inhaler, in a circular container, which some people find easier to use because you don't need to synchronise pressing a button and breathing in at the same time, as you would with a normal inhaler.
Seretide 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.
The doctor has prescribed this medicine to help prevent breathing problems such as:
- Asthma & • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Seretide Accuhaler, at a dose of 50/500 micrograms, reduces the number of flare ups of COPD symptoms.
IMPORTANT: Seretide helps to stop breathlessness and wheeziness coming on. However Seretide 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.

What you need to know before you use Seretide:
- Do not take Seretide if: You are allergic (hypersensitive) to salmeterol, fluticasone propionate or to the other ingredient lactose monohydrate.
Other medicines and Seretide:
- Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines. This includes medicines for asthma or any medicines obtained without a prescription. This is because Seretide may not be suitable to be taken with some other medicines.
Tell your doctor if you are taking the following medicines, before starting to use Seretide:
- β blockers (such as atenolol, propranolol and sotalol). β blockers are mostly used for high blood pressure or other heart conditions.
- Medicines to treat infections (such as ritonavir, ketoconazole, itraconazole and erythromycin). Some of these medicines may increase the amount of fluticasone propionate or salmeterol in your body. This can increase your risk of experiencing side effects with Seretide, including irregular heart beats, or may make side effects worse.
- Corticosteroids (by mouth or by injection). If you have had these medicines recently, this might increase the risk of this medicine affecting your adrenal gland. •
- Diuretics, also known as ‘water tablets’ used to treat high blood pressure. •
- Other bronchodilators (such as salbutamol).
- Xanthine medicines. These are often used to treat asthma.
How to use Seretide:
Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. •
- Use your Seretide every day until your doctor advises you to stop. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. •
- Do not stop taking Seretide or reduce the dose of Seretide without talking to your doctor first.
- Seretide should be inhaled through the mouth into the lungs.
For asthma - Adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over:
- Seretide Accuhaler 50/100 - One inhalation twice a day
- Seretide Accuhaler 50/250 - One inhalation twice a day
- Seretide Accuhaler 50/500 - One inhalation twice a day
Children 4 to 12 years of age:
- Seretide Accuhaler 50/100 - One inhalation twice a day
- Seretide is not recommended for use in children below 4 years of age
If your asthma or breathing gets worse tell your doctor straight away. You may find that you feel more wheezy, your chest feels tight more often or you may need to use more of your fast-acting ‘reliever’ medicine. If any of these happen, you should continue to take Seretide but do not increase the number of puffs you take. Your chest condition may be getting worse and you could become seriously ill. See your doctor as you may need additional treatment.
If you stop using Seretide:
It is very important that you take your Seretide every day as directed. Keep taking it until your doctor tells you to stop. Do not stop or suddenly reduce your dose of Seretide. This could make your breathing worse.
In addition, if you suddenly stop taking Seretide or reduce your dose of Seretide this may (very rarely) cause you to have problems with your adrenal gland (adrenal insufficiency) which sometimes causes side effects.
These side effects may include any of the following: •
Stomach pain • Tiredness and loss of appetite, feeling sick • Sickness and diarrhoea • Weight loss • Headache or drowsiness • Low levels of sugar in your blood • Low blood pressure and seizures (fits) When your body is under stress such as from fever, trauma (such as a car accident), infection, or surgery, adrenal insufficiency can get worse and you may have any of the side effects listed above.
