Description

Sereflo for Asthma & Breathing Problems

Asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are breathing conditions that primarily affect the lungs and can cause a range of breathing difficulties. Asthma often occurs after exposure to a trigger, however, it can happen randomly. Triggers may include common allergies to pollen or animal dander, infections, environmental changes or from exercise.

Sereflo is a prescription medication used to prevent breathing problems such as asthma. This is a daily asthma preventer that can help to stop feelings of breathlessness and wheezing and is not a reliever inhaler.


What is Sereflo and how does it work?

Sereflo is a combination inhaler that contains two medicines: salmeterol and fluticasone propionate. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that can help the airways stay open to increase the amount of air travelling through. Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid which can reduce the swelling and irritation in the lungs. 

Sereflo is indicated for use in adults aged 18 years of age and older only and is not a reliever/rescue inhaler.


Is Sereflo right for me?

If you are diagnosed with asthma, COPD or other breathing condition, you may be prescribed Sereflo by a doctor or healthcare professional. However, it may not be suitable for you if you have the following:

Sereflo Asthma Treatment

What is Sereflo?

Sereflo is a proprietary medication formulated for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and asthma. The therapeutic tool is a combination inhaler that contains two active ingredients: fluticasone propionate, a corticosteroid, and salmeterol, a long-acting bronchodilator. It functions by reducing inflammation in the lungs and widening the airways, facilitating individuals with respiratory disorders to breathe more efficiently.

How does Sereflo work?

The dual-action mechanism of Sereflo is quite fascinating, Fluticasone propionate, one of the active ingredients, boasts anti-inflammatory properties. It penetrates the cells lining the airways in the lungs, reducing the release of certain chemicals associated with inflammatory responses. The process decreases swelling and inflammation in the lungs, which in turn aids breathing.

On the other hand, salmeterol works by stimulating receptors known as beta2-adrenoceptors in the lungs. When these receptors are activated, the muscles of the airways relax, causing the airways to open. The action is termed bronchodilation, and it enables easier passage of air in and out of the lungs.

What class of medication is a Seroflo inhaler?

Seroflo belongs to a class of medications known as combination corticosteroids and bronchodilator inhalers. The combination and class of drugs are well-regarded for their effectiveness in managing conditions like asthma and COPD where both inflammation and constriction of the airways are involved.

What is the role of each active ingredient in Seroflo?

Seroflo comprises two active ingredients: fluticasone propionate and salmeterol. Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid that acts on the inflammatory response in the body. It restricts the release of inflammation-causing substances, thus reducing inflammation and swelling in the lungs.

Salmeterol, the second ingredient, is a long-acting bronchodilator. It is responsible for relaxing and opening the airways to the lungs, aiding the individual in breathing more comfortably. 

Together, these two ingredients provide a comprehensive approach to managing the symptoms of conditions like asthma and COPD.

Is Seroflo the same as Seretide?

No, although similar Seroflo and Seretide are not exactly the same. Seroflo and Seretide are very similar in that they both contain the same active ingredients – fluticasone propionate and salmeterol. The difference between them mainly lies in the branding; they are marketed under different names by different companies. Thus, Seroflo and Seretide function in similar ways, and might be considered therapeutic equivalents.

Sereflo Dosage & Usage

Sereflo dosage

The specific dosage of Seroflo varies depending on the patient's condition and the severity of symptoms. The standard dose for adults and adolescents over 12 years of age is two puffs from the Seroflo inhaler twice a day. However, it's essential to follow the exact dosage instructions given by a healthcare professional.

Can I take Seroflo every day?

Yes, Seroflo is designed for regular use and must be taken as prescribed by a healthcare professional. Consistent use helps maintain open airways and prevent asthma or COPD symptoms. However, it is important not to exceed the prescribed dosage, as it might lead to adverse effects.

How do I use Sereflo?

To use Seroflo, one must first remove the cap from the mouthpiece of the inhaler. Breathe out as far as is comfortable, then place the mouthpiece in the mouth, with the lips creating a tight seal around it. As one begins to breathe in slowly and deeply, press down on the top of the inhaler to release a dose of the medication. Continue to breathe in as slowly as possible until the lungs are full, then hold the breath for about ten seconds, or as long as is comfortable.

What should I do if I miss a dose or overdose on Seroflo?

In case of a missed dose, one must take it as soon as they remember. However, if it's close to the time for the next dose, skip the missed one and continue with the regular schedule. One must not double dose to make up for the missed one.

If an overdose is suspected, it's crucial to seek medical help immediately. Overdosing on Seroflo might lead to serious complications like a fast or irregular heartbeat, weakness, shakiness or palpitations.

Is Seroflo suitable for children and the elderly?

Seroflo is not suitable for children under 12 years of age and may cause complications in some elderly people, following recommendations from a healthcare provider. Seroflo is generally safe for use by the elderly under the guidance of a healthcare professional, however, it's worth noting that the elderly might be more susceptible to side effects.

As for children, the use of Seroflo must be determined by a healthcare professional. Children under 12 years must not usually use Seroflo, but it is potentially prescribed in specific circumstances. It's crucial to follow all dosage instructions carefully to ensure the medication is used safely and effectively.

Sereflo Side Effects & Considerations

What are the side effects of Sereflo?

Like any medication, Sereflo might cause side effects, however, not everyone experiences them. Some common side effects include headaches, a sore throat or throat irritation, and thrush in the mouth and throat. Less common side effects encompass muscle cramps, palpitations, or an unexpected increase in wheezing or shortness of breath immediately after using the inhaler. It is important to note that these are typically transient and might disappear as the body adjusts to the medication.

Who should not use Seroflo?

Individuals with certain conditions must avoid using Sereflo, conditions include hypersensitivity to fluticasone, salmeterol, or any component of the inhaler. People with severe liver disease, tuberculosis, viral, fungal, or other untreated infections must consult a healthcare professional before starting on Seroflo.

Can Seroflo cause an allergic reaction? What are the signs?

Yes, like all medicines, Seroflo might cause allergic reactions in some individuals, though it is rare. Signs of an allergic reaction include a rash, itching or hives on the skin, swelling of the face, lips, tongue or other parts of the body, shortness of breath, wheezing or difficulty breathing. If any of these signs are noticed after using Seroflo, medical attention must be sought immediately.

Is Seroflo a steroid inhaler?

Yes, Seroflo is a combination inhaler that contains fluticasone propionate, which is a type of steroid. Fluticasone propionate helps to reduce inflammation in the lungs.

Can Seroflo be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

The use of Seroflo during pregnancy or while breastfeeding must only occur if the benefit outweighs the potential risk to the baby and as recommended by a provider. A healthcare professional must be consulted before using the medication if one is pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding.

Does Seroflo have any effects on driving or operating heavy machinery?

No, Seroflo is not typically known to impair one's ability to drive or operate heavy machinery. However, as with any medication, it's recommended to see how one reacts to Seroflo before undertaking these activities. If a person experiences side effects like dizziness or blurred vision, they must avoid these activities until such side effects subside.

Trimethoprim is commonly prescribed to treat urinary tract infections, a prevalent health issue affecting the urinary system. This medication is effective against a range of bacterial infections, notably those affecting the urinary and respiratory tracts. Trimethoprim works by targeting and inhibiting a substance called folic acid, which is crucial for the growth and reproduction of bacteria. By disrupting the production of folic acid, Trimethoprim hinders the development of bacteria, thereby helping to clear infections.

While it's primarily known for its effectiveness in treating urinary tract infections, it's also used for certain types of respiratory tract infections. However, like any medication, the safety of Trimethoprim for an individual depends on various factors including their overall health, other medications they may be taking, and their specific medical history. It's important to consult a healthcare professional to determine if Trimethoprim is a safe and appropriate treatment option.

We recommend you read the patient information leaflet for this product thoroughly before taking the treatment. This is essential to understanding any interactions that can occur and to take the medication safely.
