Advair Diskus (Generic name: salmeterol/fluticasone; Other brand names: Seretide, Advair Accuhaler) is prescribed for the long-term treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to improve breathing and reduce flare ups. It is also commonly prescribed as a maintenance treatment of asthma in patients four years of age and older.
It is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler. Advair works by decreasing inflammation in the airways to allow easier breathing. Advair Diskus is marketed and sold under the name Seretide Accuhaler in the United Kingdom by the same company, GlaxoSmithKline, that sells it in the U.S. You can save money on Advair Diskus 250/50 mcg and its analogues by comparing prices at Canadian and international online pharmacies with discount prices available at U.S. pharmacies. Advair Diskus sold in the U.S. is manufactured in the United Kingdom.
The total price includes shipping fees which typically cover an entire order, making it more economical to purchase multiple medications in the same order.
U.S. government officials have stated that individuals who order non-controlled prescription drugs from Canada or other foreign sources (up to a three-month supply) for their own use are not being pursued or prosecuted - although it is technically not legal for individuals to import most prescription drugs. The U.S FDA regulates the safety and efficacy of medications sold in U.S. pharmacies. Medications dispensed from outside the U.S. are regulated for safety and efficacy by pharmaceutical/pharmacy regulatory authorities in other countries. Read how regulations may differ by country.
The Tier 1 icon means that an online pharmacy only fills prescription orders through their own pharmacy or dispensing pharmacy partners in Australia, Canada, Israel, New Zealand, United Kingdom, or the U.S. Such countries are known to have equally advanced pharmaceutical and pharmacy regulatory systems. Please note that all PharmacyChecker-accredited online pharmacies (tier 1 and non-tier 1) meet the same high standards as identified in the PharmacyChecker Verification Program.
