Buy Seretide online

You can buy Seretide online from Prescription Doctor's trusted online UK pharmacy. We offer a next-day discreet delivery on all orders placed through our private online doctor's service.

What is Seretide?

Seretide inhalers are used by people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary syndrome (COPD).

In most cases, inhalers fit into one of two categories; relievers and preventers.

Relievers, such as Ventolin, are used to relieve a sudden onset of asthma symptoms, such as wheezing and tightness of the chest after exercise. Reliever inhalers usually contain bronchodilators, which quickly relieve inflammation in the lungs.

Preventers, such as Qvar and Clenil Modulite, are taken once or twice a day to prevent asthmatic symptoms. Preventer inhalers often contain a long-acting steroid known as a corticosteroid, which prevents inflammation from developing in the lungs.

Seretide contains both a long-acting corticosteroid, called fluticasone, and a bronchodilator called salmeterol. Together, these active ingredients prevent and relieve symptoms commonly associated with asthma and COPD. Despite this, Seretide is classed as a reliever inhaler and is taken twice a day to prevent asthmatic symptoms, such as bronchospasm, from developing.

How do I take Seretide?

It is important to take Seretide as instructed by your doctor or asthma nurse. Your doctor or asthma nurse may arrange regular appointments to review your condition and the effectiveness of your treatment.

The typical dose of Seretide is one inhalation twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening.

If you are unsure how to take Seretide, speak to your doctor.

How to use Seretide Accuhaler

Seretide Accuhalers are circular devices which deliver a metered powdered dose of Seretide. Each Accuhaler holds 60 doses of Seretide.

Before you use the Accuhaler, check the small window on the Accuhaler to see how many doses are left.

  1. To open your Accuhaler, hold the dark purple portion of your Accuhaler with one hand and rotate light purple with your thumb as far as it will go. You should hear a click. This will reveal a mouthpiece and a small lever.
  2. Push the lever back until it locks into place with a click. This releases the medicine into the mouthpiece. It is important to hold your Accuhaler upright to prevent the medicine from falling out.
  3. Hold the Accuhaler away from your face and breath out as far as possible. Do not breathe into your inhaler.
  4. Place the mouthpiece between your lips and breath in deeply and steadily through your mouth. Do not breathe in through your nose.
  5. Remove the Accuhaler from your mouth and hold your breath for 10 seconds.
  6. Slowly breathe out through your mouth.
  7. Close the Accuhaler by sliding the thumb grip back as far as it will go until you hear a click. Closing the Accuhaler resets the lever.

Always rinse your mouth out with water after taking your Seretide Accuhaler. Corticosteroid inhalers can increase your risk of oral thrush.

Do not attempt to dismantle or service your Accuhaler as this can damage the mechanism inside.

Do not play with the mechanism by opening and closing the Accuhaler as this wastes medicine.

What should I do if I forget to take Seretide when I should?

If you forget to take Seretide, take it as soon as you remember. If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take Seretide at your usual time.

Do not take more Seretide to make up for the dose you missed.

What should I do if I accidentally take more Seretide than I should?

If you accidentally take more Seretide than you should, inform your doctor. Taking more Seretide may increase your risk of experiencing side effects.

Frequently asked questions

Can I drink alcohol while taking Seretide?

While it is unlikely that alcohol will interact with Seretide and reduce its effectiveness, alcohol consumption may cause or worsen asthmatic symptoms.

Can I take Seretide if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

Seek advice from your doctor or a pharamcist before taking Seretide if you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

Will Seretide affect my ability to drive or operate machinery?

Seretide is unlikely to affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. You should see how your body responds to the medicine before doing these activities. If you experience dizziness, fatigue or drowsiness after taking Seretide, avoid these activities until you feel it is safe for you to do so.

Can I use Ventolin with Seretide?

Seretide can be taken with Ventolin.

Do note that while Seretide contains a bronchodilator, it should not be used to replace your normal reliever inhaler (blue inhaler).

Why should I rinse my mouth after taking Seretide?

Seretide, among other reliever inhalers, contain a class of drugs called corticosteroids. When inhaled, the mouth becomes covered in small particles of these drugs. Corticosteroids can interfere with the balance of microorganisms in the mouth and cause an overgrowth of a certain pathogens, especially candida.

Thrush occurs when these pathogens are left to grow unchallenged by the immune system.

Therefore, it is important to brush your teeth or rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after taking an inhaler which contains a corticosteroid.

Can Seretide make asthma worse?

While taking Seretide, you may notice that your chest feels tighter, you may wheeze more, or you use more of your reliever inhaler. If you notice that your asthma symptoms become worse while taking Seretide, inform your doctor as soon as you can as it may be symptoms of a chest infection or another serious illness.

You should continue to take Seretide normally. Do not increase the dose to compensate if your symptoms are getting worse.
