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).
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.
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.
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 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 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.

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.
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.
