Its action starts within 30 to 60 minutes and can last more than 12 hours. Advair Diskus is generally not needed in patients whose asthma can be controlled easily with infrequent administration of short acting inhalers. Advair HFA is used for treating asthma in individuals 12 years old or older. Advair Diskus or HFA should not be used to treat acute episodes of asthma or COPD.

Advair Side Effects
Upper respiratory tract infections occur in 20% to 25% of patients using Advair. Headaches occur in about 1 in 8 patients who use it. Other potential adverse events include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mouth or throat candidiasis, and musculoskeletal pain. Use of long acting agents like salmeterol, an active ingredient in Advair, may increase the risk of asthma-related death. Therefore, Advair should only be used in patients who's asthma is uncontrolled by other agents, and who are using long-term asthma-controlling medications such as an inhaled corticosteroid.
It’s widely recognized that the US citizens have the highest healthcare costs in the world. Have you ever wondered why Americans spend so much more? The majority cost revolves around inpatient and outpatient care sectors but can you guess what takes up the next largest sector? Hint? It’s the prescription drugs.
McKinsey & Company recently wrote about this issue. They are a leading management consulting firm that advises governments and private businesses from all over the world. The article explains that America spends $2.1 trillion on healthcare every year and it breaks down the healthcare costs into categories. Out of this $2.1 trillion, roughly $650 billion is spent above the expected predictions.
Out of this $650 billion over spending, $98 billion was overspent on medications. That’s a vast amount of above expected pending on drugs!
