What is Serevent for?
Serevent is often prescribed to those with asthma that has not been controlled sufficiently enough through the use of a reliever inhaler by itself, or through the use of a combination of a reliever and a preventer inhaler. Serevent can also be used to prevent symptoms of asthma that are brought on by exercise, and is often prescribed to those suffering with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Serevent inhalers are particularly useful in preventing shortness of breath that may be worse at night, therefore are often used before going to bed.
Serevent Accuhaler or Evohaler is often prescribed together at the same time as other inhalers and is intended to be used every day. To buy Serevent inhalers from Medical Specialists® with no face-to-face appointments and a quick delivery service, you will just need to fill out an online consultation with one of our registered Prescribers, who will assess your suitability.
How does Serevent work?
Whether you buy Serevent online as an Accuhaler or Evohaler, the active ingredient in both types of Serevent is Salmeterol. This is known as a long-acting beta 2 agonist, meaning it acts on the beta 2 receptors within the lungs. Salmeterol stimulates these receptors, relaxing the muscles in the airways and allowing them to become relaxed and more open. It is important to note that Serevent is not a reliever inhaler and should not be used to alleviate the immediate symptoms of your condition. You should have been prescribed a reliever inhaler for this. Although Salmeterol does not immediately take effect, it does last for an extended period of time (around 12 hours).
What is the difference between Serevent Accuhaler and Evohaler?
Serevent Accuhaler is available in a strength of 50mcg Salmeterol only. It is a dry powder inhalation device containing blisters (50mcg in each blister). This device needs aerosol inhalation to be effective, which means you should open the lever and place the inhaler’s mouthpiece in your mouth in order to inhale the medication. It is usually prescribed as asthma treatment for patients who require a long-acting beta agonist.
Serevent Evohaler is available in a strength of 25mcg Salmeterol only. It is a CFC-free metered aerosol dose inhaler. Similar to the Accuhaler, this medicine requires aerosol inhalation, via placing the mouthpiece in your mouth and inhaling. This dosage is usually prescribed as an add-on treatment for those whose condition is not controlled by inhaled corticosteroids alone.
How to use Serevent
When you buy Serevent asthma inhalers online do not use more than recommended by your doctor or as stated in the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL).
You should refer to the PIL before using Serevent for detailed instructions on how to use the medicine correctly.
The normal dosage for asthma in adults is 50mcg twice daily, but your doctor can either increase this to 100mcg twice daily, or reduce it to 25mcg twice daily, depending on the severity of your condition.
What are the possible side effects of Serevent?
Side effects are rare, and most people don’t get any. Possible side effects may vary from one person to the next with any medication. You should always read the manufacturer’s Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) before using this or any other medication.
This will give you important instructions on how and when to use the medication, as well as any possible side effects of the drug.
