Combiwave SF 25mcg/250mcg Inhaler 120 Doses

Combiwave SF 25 mcg/250 mcg Inhaler is a combination of two medicines: Salmeterol and Fluticasone. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator which works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways. Fluticasone is a steroid which stops the release of certain natural substances that cause inflammation (swelling) in the airways. Together, they make breathing easier. Combiwave SF 25 mcg/250 mcg Inhaler is used in the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder. Salmeterol has a slower onset of action but gives a more effective protection against histamine induced bronchoconstriction and longer duration of bronchodilation lasting for approximately 12 hours. The potent anti-inflammatory action of Fluticasone improves the symptomatic control of asthma and permits the reduction of other drugs like rescure bronchodilators. This significant anti-inflammatory action decreases the risk of decline in lung function over time.
How to use
Shake the inhaler well immediately before each use. While you are breathing in from mouth, press down on the inhaler one time to release the medication and hold your breath for 10 seconds. Repeat until you have inhaled the number of puffs as suggested by the doctor. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and spit it out after inhaling each dose. This likely to reduce the soreness that may be caused by the drug.
Use of the metered dose inhaler is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to any ingredients of the formulation.
