What is Serevent Diskus?
Serevent Diskus contains the prescription medicine salmeterol. Salmeterol is a class of drug known as a long-acting beta2-adrenoceptor agonist (LABA) bronchodilator. Salmeterol relaxes the muscle in the airways of the lungs helping you to breathe more easily.
Serevent Diskus is used to help prevent asthma attacks or tightening of the airways in the lungs (bronchospasm) caused by exercise. It is also used to treat conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and chronic bronchitis.
Serevent Diskus is not recommended to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler. Serevent Diskus is used in addition to long-term use of inhaled corticosteroids for the treatment of asthma and bronchospasm. Using Serevent Diskus on its own for the treatment of asthma is not recommended. Serevent Diskus is not recommended for patients whose asthma is adequately controlled on low or medium-dose inhaled corticosteroids. Also, once the asthma is controlled Serevent Diskus treatment should be reduced if possible without losing control of asthma, and to maintain treatment with inhaled corticosteroids only.
Serevent Diskus active ingredients
The effects of long-acting beta2-adrenoceptor agonist drugs such as salmeterol are partly due to its stimulation of a certain enzyme in the body called adenyl cyclase. This enzyme through a series of processes increases the concentration of cyclic AMP, which causes smooth muscle in the lining of the lung walls to relax and allows you to breath more easily. The increase in the chemical cyclic AMP also stops the release of chemicals (histamine, leukotrienes) in the lungs which would also make the lungs hypersensitive.
LABA medication has been seen to increase the risk of asthma-related hospitalization. A fixed-dose combination product containing both an inhaled corticosteroid and a LABA should be used for children or younger adults, to ensure they use the medication correctly. Where using a separate long-term asthma control medication (e.g. inhaled corticosteroid) and a LABA is recommended, steps must be taken to ensure both treatments are used correctly.
