COMBINATION CORTICOSTEROID/LONG-ACTING BRONCHODILATOR
Advair is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as maintenance treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Advair is a combination drug composed of Fluticasone and Salmeterol.
Fluticasone is a glucocorticoid steroid, a drug that suppresses the immune system. Fluticasone is believed to work by reducing inflammation in the lungs, lowering the risk of bronchospasm. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator (LABA), a drug that dilates the bronchi and bronchioles in the lungs, making it easier to breathe.
