Inhaler options multiply with launch of new salmeterol/fluticasone MDI

Sereflo (salmeterol/fluticasone) is indicated for adults with asthma where the use of a long-acting ß2-agonist and inhaled corticosteroid is appropriate.

Sereflo (salmeterol/fluticasone) provides an additional option for asthma patients needing a combination inhaler.
Sereflo (salmeterol/fluticasone) provides an additional option for asthma patients needing a combination inhaler.

Sereflo is licensed for patients with moderate to severe asthma who are not adequately controlled on a lower strength corticosteroid combination product. It can also be used in patients already adequately controlled on a mid- or high-strength inhaled corticosteroid and a long-acting β2-agonist. 

The metered-dose inhaler is available in two strengths:

  • 25/125 (salmeterol 25 microgram, fluticasone propionate 125 microgram)
  • 25/250 (salmeterol 25 microgram, fluticasone propionate 250 microgram)

Use of a spacer is recommended only for Sereflo 25/250, with which the Volumatic device and the AeroChamber Plus are both compatible. If a spacer is required for use with Sereflo 25/125, prescribers are advised to issue patients with an alternative inhaler. 

The efficacy and safety of salmeterol and fluticasone for the treatment of asthma are well established.
