How Advair Works
Fluticasone and Salmeterol work together to manage asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Fluticasone is a corticosteroid and acts as an anti-infalmmatory by preventing the release of substances which can lead to inflammation. Salmeterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles to prevent airway construction. More simply put, together these two components of the branded and generic Advair prevent asthma attacks, as well as relieve COPD symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Advair is also proven to prevent flare-ups of illnesses associated with asthma such as Chronic Bronchitis. Advair diskus and its generic counterpart are highly effective at improving breathing quality, and managing your asthma symptoms.
Generic Advair vs Brand Advair
Generic Advair which is primarily manufactured by Cipla is the same medication as the branded GSK (GlaskoSmithKline) Advair. The generic has the same potency, same effectiveness, and exact same chemical components (Fluticasone/ Salmeterol). One difference between our brand and generic Advair discus is the brand diskus will contain 60 doses, while the generic Advair diskus will contain 30 doses. Another difference is the generic drug cost is significantly lower than the brand.
