What is Seretide?

Seretide is a purple-coloured combination inhaler that is used for the prevention of asthma symptoms. It contains two different active ingredients, which work in slightly different ways to reduce your risk of an asthma attack. 

Seretide inhalers contain fluticasone, a preventer medication which reduces lung inflammation, and salmeterol, a reliever medication that opens the airways during an attack. You can get Seretide inhalers in two forms: an Evohaler (a more traditional aerosol inhaler) or an Accuhaler (a diskus inhaler). 

How does Seretide work?

Salmeterol and fluticasone are the active ingredients in Seretide. It’s a double action inhaler – it prevents the symptoms of asthma and gives ongoing relief when used regularly. 

The fluticasone in Seretide prevents the cells in your lungs from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation in the lungs; and the salmeterol in Seretide relaxes the muscles in the airways to keep them open and help you breathe easier. 

What’s the difference between Seretide Accuhaler and Evohaler?

Both the Seretide Accuhaler and Evohaler deliver a measured dose of their active ingredients into the lungs, but the way they do it is a little different. The Evohaler is a canister filled with liquid, while the Accuhaler contains dry powder. And the way you administer them is slightly different too. With the Evohaler, you need to manually push down on the canister to release the spray. But the Accuhaler is ‘breath-actuated’. There’s a lever that you slide on the inhaler to prepare it, and you can then inhale the dose from there.

Are there different Seretide doses?

Seretide comes in a range of strengths, and the right dose for you depends on the severity of your asthma. Our clinician can advise you on a suitable dose and explain how often you should use your inhaler.

Seretide Evohaler doses

Seretide 50 is the lowest dose of Evohaler and contains 25mcg salmeterol and 50mcg fluticasone. 

The middle dose of Evohaler is Seretide 125, and contains 25mcg salmeterol and 125mcg fluticasone. This is used in mild asthma. 

Seretide 250 is the highest Evohaler dose, and contains 25mcg salmeterol and 250mcg fluticasone. This is used in moderate to severe asthma.

Seretide Accuhaler doses

Seretide 100 is the lowest dose of Accuhaler, and contains 50mcg salmeterol and 100mcg fluticasone.

If you have mild asthma you might be prescribed the middle dose of Seretide Accuhaler, Seretide 250. This contains 50mcg salmeterol and 250mcg fluticasone. 

The highest dose, Seretide 500, might be recommended if you have moderate to severe asthma. This dose of Accuhaler contains 50mcg salmeterol and 500mcg fluticasone.

How to use Seretide

Seretide inhalers come with an information leaflet that explains how to use the diskus’ version of Seretide (Accuhaler) and the more  traditional aerosol inhaler version (Evohaler).

It’s important to learn how to use your inhaler properly. If you’re unsure on how to use Seretide, our clinician can help. Just sign in to your account and send them a message.

Seretide Accuhaler instructions

  • Hold the outer case in one hand, and put the thumb of your other hand on the thumb grip
  • Push your thumb away until you hear a click
  • Slide the lever away from you until you hear a click and see the dose counter decrease by ‘1’
  • Put the mouthpiece to your lips and breathe in through your mouth
  • Remove the accuhaler from your mouth
  • Wait 10 seconds before taking another dose
  • After the final dose, rinse your mouth with water

Seretide Evohaler instructions

  • Breathe slowly
  • Stand or sit upright
  • Remove the mouthpiece cover
  • Check that the mouthpiece is clear
  • Shake the inhaler four or five times
  • Hold the inhaler upright with your thumb at the base of the mouthpiece
  • Breathe out as far as possible
  • Place the mouthpiece between your teeth and seal your lips around it
  • Breathe in through your mouth as you press down on the top of the canister
  • Hold your breath for a few seconds
  • Wait 30 seconds before taking another dose
  • After taking the final dose, rinse your mouth with water

How long does Seretide take to work?

It should start working within a few hours, but Seretide can take two to four weeks to become fully effective. In clinical trials, 50% of participants achieved a ‘well controlled’ week after 16 days of treatment with Seretide. For those steroids alone in the same study, this was 37 days.

If you’ve been using Seretide for a while and don’t think it’s helping to improve your symptoms, it’s best to let your clinician know, so they can look at tweaking your dose or suggest a treatment that works better for you.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

FAQ: Seretide

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Is Seretide a steroid inhaler?

Answer:
Seretide contains a corticosteroid called fluticasone. This reduces inflammation in the lungs by preventing your cells from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation in the lungs and airways.

The other active ingredient, salmeterol, is a long acting beta-2 agonist. This helps to open up the airways and makes breathing easier.

Which is better: Seretide Accuhaler or Seretide Evohaler?

Answer:
It depends what you find easier to use, and which dose you need. They both do the same job, just in different ways. And the dosing is slightly different. Your clinician can help you decide which inhaler is best for you.

The active ingredients in Seretide Evohaler enter your lungs as a mist, and the same active ingredients are found in the Seretide Accuhaler in powder form.

The inhalers are both purple, but look different. The Evohaler is an ‘L’ shaped inhaler, and the Accuhaler is disk-shaped.

Some people find the Seretide Accuhaler easier to use because there’s no need to time your breathing as you take the dose of medicine.

The traditional aerosol inhaler (which is what Evohaler is a modern equivalent of) has been a popular form of treatment for asthma for over 50 years. Being easy to manufacture makes it highly affordable. Children and older people can find it difficult to time their breathing correctly when using an evohaler and this reduces the amount of medicine that reaches the lungs. Historically there has been concern about the environmental impact of aerosol inhalers and their effect on the ozone layer,  but many inhalers, including Seretide, are now made using CFC-free propellants.

Is Seretide safe during pregnancy?

Answer:
Yes. It’s safe to use Seretide during pregnancy.

If you have asthma, you are likely to be closely monitored throughout your pregnancy due to the changes that your body goes through when you’re pregnant.

Is Seretide the same as Serevent?

Answer:
Seretide and Serevent are different. The two active ingredients in Seretide mean that it’s a combination treatment, while Serevent only has one ingredient.

Serevent contains a reliever agent only, and doesn’t contain a long-acting medication to prevent symptoms. They both contain the same reliever ingredient, though.

Are there alternatives to Seretide?

Answer:
There are other combination inhalers that can be used as an alternative to Seretide.

Seroflo and Combisal offer a cheaper alternative to Seretide but contain the same active ingredients: salmeterol and fluticasone

Symbicort is made by the same manufacturer as Seretide. It contains different active ingredients to Seretide, but works in a similar way. Symbicort is used less frequently than Seretide to achieve the same effects.

Can Seretide also be used in COPD?

Answer:
Yes. Seretide can be used to treat asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) because it helps to prevent and relieve the effects of inflammation in the lungs. But the dose of Seretide prescribed for COPD may be different to that prescribed for asthma.

COPD is the name given to a group of lung conditions that cause breathing difficulties including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Do I need a prescription for Seretide?

Answer:
Yes. Seretide is a prescription only treatment, so our clinician will need to make sure that it’s a safe and suitable treatment option for you, and they’ll need to ensure that you’re taking the correct dose to control your asthma.

Can you take Seretide and Ventolin together?

Answer:
You can take Seretide and Ventolin alongside each other, because they’re different types of inhalers. Seretide is an inhaler that helps to prevent asthma, and you’ll use it as a regular medicine you take every day at set times. Ventolin is an on-demand inhaler that helps to relieve asthma symptoms when you get them. So they do different jobs.

On occasion, you might be advised to use your reliever inhaler immediately before your preventer inhaler, because this can sometimes help you administer the preventer dose better.

Why should I buy my Seretide inhaler online with Treated?

Answer:
We’re making asthma care convenient. Tell us about your health, and we’ll advise you on the right treatments just for you. You can choose your medication from our options, and how often you’d like to receive your treatment from our pharmacy too.
