What is Advair Diskus?
Advair Diskus is the brand name of a combination product. It contains two active drugs:
- Fluticasone - a corticosteroid that reduces airway inflammation.
- Salmeterol - a long-acting bronchodilator that makes breathing easier.
Advair Diskus is used to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Another form of Advair - Advair HFA - is used to treat asthma. Both forms are available only with a doctor’s prescription.
