What is Serevent?
Asthma is a lung condition that affects adults and children of all ages. It can be serious, so it’s important to control it with the right treatment. Seeing as it affects so many people, there are a few different medication options, one of them being Serevent.
Serevent is a branded treatment that uses the active ingredient salmeterol xinafoate to treat asthma symptoms. It’s a preventative treatment for asthma that helps you manage your symptoms, and it comes in two forms: the Evohaler and the Accuhaler.
How does Serevent work?
Serevent’s active ingredient is called Salmeterol, a bronchodilator that works by acting on beta-2 receptors. When these receptors are stimulated, the muscles in your airways relax and open, making it easier to breathe and reducing asthma symptoms. It can help to open your airways for 12 hours or more.
What doses of Serevent are there?
Serevent comes in two formats. There’s the Accuhaler, which dispenses 50 micrograms of salmeterol per use, and the Evohaler, which dispenses 25 micrograms of salmeterol per use.
Both the Accuhaler and the Evohaler are limited to one dose, so if the treatment isn’t working for you, you should contact our clinicians to review your treatment. They can advise you on alternative treatments if these options aren’t working the way they should for you.
