Advair Diskus is used for the treatment of asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) associated with chronic bronchitis. 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.
We get asked many questions about buying medication online from abroad. One of the most asked questions is "will the tablets look the same?" and "I received my order but the box looks different from the box I used to get in my local pharmacy. why is this?"
It feels like drug companies are intentionally trying to confuse us. In some cases this may be true, but most of the time it's just down to marketing.
Different countries and cultures respond better to different names and packaging.The name might have offensive connotations. The trademark might already be in use - these are just a few of the main explanations that Pharma companies have come up with.
Here's what to look out for when buying medication online, from abroad and some advice on safe practice.
