Answered questions

How long does it take serevent to start working?
I just started it 5 days ago for my asthma, but it doesn't seem to be helping and i didn't know if it takes awhile before you see relief from wheezing and coughing. My doctor left town so i cannot ask her. Asked by Gaynell Fantauzzi 1 year ago.

Serevent is a long acting beta agonist. This just means that it lasts about 12 hours in your system dilating your airways. It does not take the place of short acting bronchodilators (like albuterol). It should work on the first day that you take it. It may be working for you and you are not aware of it. Check your peak flows daily. Do one before the Serevent and then wait an hour or so and then try it again. You may see an increase in the reading. If you don't feel it is working, and there is no improvement in your peak flows, it is possible that this drug is not for you. Talk to your doctor when she gets back and discuss your other options. Good luck. Answered by Terrilyn Secundo 1 year ago.


Why shouldn't I take Serevent alone?
I've been taking Serevent for quite some time(works great) and the doctor I switched to is telling me I can't take it without some kind of steroid because it's dangerous but didn't give me a convincing argument.

serevent only opens airways by relaxing muscles in your air passages. The steriod reduces the swelling in the airways. The airways can some times become swollen without the steriod, that sometimes despite full relaxation of the muscles cannot open the airways, and the patient collapses from lack of oxygen. I hope this information helps. Ur doc is not BSing u. In medical school a guy showed us a graph how increasing use of bronchodialators (eg serevent) is proportional to increasing death rates from asthma. Ur doc is jus telling u what he knows. no bull Answered by Marlys Shadazz 1 year ago.

You know that during an asthma attack, bronchial constriction is the primary symptom. Serevent is a long-acting beta-agonist that allows bronchial muscles to relax, which in turns allows asthmatics to breath normally. But there's a problem with Serevent. It can cause acute asthma attacks (it was never intended to treat these) and death. GlaxoSmithKline was ordered by the FDA to add a Black Box warning to the packaging and they have yet to comply. It's strongly recommended that a corticosteroid be taken concurrently to reduce airway inflammation. Your new doctor is well informed. The more recent studies showed an increase in hospitalizations and deaths among those using long-acting beta-agonists, sic. Serevent. The FDA knows this and sent out this information to providers before the results of the studies were even published. I don't know what you regard as "quite some time" but you should sit up and take notice of this. Long-term use is 4 or more years. Your new physician wants to keep you alive and well. Instead of not being convinced, do some research on your own time. Type in "Dangers of Serevent" in your search bar and you'll get 126,000 reasons to comply with your doctor.

Whats the difference between Serevent and Advair?
Asked by Dusty Wilbourn 1 year ago.

Serevent (Salmeterol) is long acting b-2 agonist which causes airway muscles relaxation thus allowing airways to open helping in easy breathing. Used for prevention of asthma and COPD. Advair is combination drug of salmeterol with steroid fluticosone. Fluticosone has antianflammatory property so combination provides coverage of both inflammatory and bronchoconstrictive aspects of asthma .Because of complimentary actions of both drugs together, it provides superior control of asthma. Answered by Cristal Morningstar 1 year ago.

Serevent (Salmeterol) is mainly for exercise induced or nocturnal asthma. It is a bronchodilator so it helps to open up the airways when an attack causes bronchial muscles to tighten up and reduce the amount of air you can move. This is a longer acting form of a bronchodilator. Advair (Fluticasone/Salmeterol) is a combination drug. It is Serevent that has a corticosteroid added to it. Fluticasone helps to reduce inflammation caused by chronic asthma. So Advair helps to prevent an attack by reducing inflammation and muscle constriction. Answered by Valerie Bofinger 1 year ago.


Is serevent bad? 10 points!?
I'm afraid to take it because of the sudden death thing.. What is that and how is it caused? Asked by Brigida Pait 1 year ago.

I said no to my doctor. I am taking albuterol and qvar instead of serevent. Just tell your doctor you want something else. The way they explain it anyway, makes like it never really happens. Why bother with something like that if there are better drugs. Evidently the sudden death is cause by heart arrhythmias cause by serevent getting your heart so excited that it beats wrong and can't get enough blood pumped around to sustain life. Another problem is sometimes instead of helping the asthma, it causes a worse attack or it doesn't help at all. Answered by Rana Romandia 1 year ago.

Thanks to all who answer Answered by Arnette Froehlich 1 year ago.

Yes, call the poison control center in your area. If not that then go to the ER. Salmeterol overdose can cause rapid heart rate, hypertension, agitation, etc.... They may need to monitor your vital signs for the next few hours, and administer beta blockers in a controlled setting if necessary. Also, make sure you understand which inhalers are for rescue and which are for maintenance. Maintenance inhalers aren't useful for acute attacks and only lead to overdose as a patient keeps trying to get them to work quickly. Salmeterol is long-acting by design so the effect are going to be there for a number of hours. So, don't ignore it. Answered by Valerie Hasko 1 year ago.

If Serevent isn't working & Pulmicort didn't help before, can they work together somehow since they dont work individually? Also, I have an Albuterol (rescue) inhaler for quick relief. It says that I can take it up to 4 times a day every 4-6hrs. How close together can I take doses? If I take it & then an hour & a half later I'm short of breath and wheezing can I take it again? I have only been on Pulmicort again for 2 days now & I know that it usually takes about 2 weeks or more to see any improvement. I used to run track.

I have struggled with chronic asthma my whole life, I am 33 now. I spent my childhood and teenage years taking prednisone just so I could breath. My Doctor tried everything to get me off steroids.

My daughter is asthmatic, she used to be on your medication before but it did not work very well. Now she takes seretide 125mgs 2 puffs twice a day and a tablet of singulair 10mg at night before going to bed, her asthma is more controlled now. What you should do before running take a few puffs of ventolin to open your airways. My daughter was recommended this by her doctor. Also have you had any allergy testing? My daughter had this test and at least we know apart from her asthma what she's allergic to for eg: birds, dogs,cats and birds. I think you should go and see your doctor and tell him how you feel.
