Serobid general information

What is Serobid used for?

Serobid CFC-free inhaler 25mcg is used to treat and manage asthma and to help relieve symptoms like wheezing, tightness of the chest and shortness of breath. Serobid CFC-free inhaler is also used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic bronchitis. Because Serobid CFC-free inhaler works with a slow onset and long duration of action, it is particularly suitable for managing exercise induced asthma and nocturnal symptoms in asthma (such as night time cough). Serobid CFC-free inhaler is normally used as well as inhaled corticosteroids, (a “preventer” asthma medication), but is not intended for use as a "rescue" or “reliever” medication because of the slower onset of action (10 to 20 minutes). Serobid CFC-free inhaler does not act fast enough to help with an asthma attack and should not be used to relieve acute asthmatic symptoms, for which a faster acting (within 5 minutes) inhaled bronchodilator (e.g. salbutamol) should be taken.

How does Serobid work?

Salmeterol is a beta2-agonist that acts on the small airways of the lungs (bronchioles) and works as bronchodilator by relaxing the muscles in the walls of the bronchioles to widen the airways. This reduces bronchospasm (constriction of the airways) relieving symptoms of asthma such as tightness of the chest, wheezing and shortness of breath, and because it is long-acting Serobid CFC-free inhaler provides relief for up to 12 hours. Serobid CFC-free inhaler delivers your medication (salmeterol) as an aerosol and contains 120 metered doses
