Medication Regimen

I am prescribed Advair and Symbi-cort. The Advair is twice a day and Symbi-cort is once a day. What is the reccommended regimen to taking these drugs? Do I spread them out to 3 times a day - ie Advair morning and night with Symbi-cort at lunch? Can I take Advair and Symbi-cort together in the morning?? Just what are other members doing? Thanks.
