AirFluSal is a treatment for asthma that prevents breathlessness and reduces the frequency of sudden attacks.
The medication's active ingredients help in keeping the airways open in the lungs, making it easier to allow air in and for normal breathing. Corticosteroids are also included in the medication to reduce inflammation and swelling.
Before you start taking this medication, your doctor or nurse will show you how to use it properly. AirFluSal inhaler is made of a canister within a plastic container with a mouthpiece. There is also a dose indicator at the front that tells you how many puffs are left.
Stand or sit straight up to administer the dose. Take off the mouthpiece cover and shake it 4 to 5 times. Then, exhale as far as you feel comfortable. Place the inhaler between your teeth without biting it. Close your lips around it. To release the medicine, inhale deeply and slowly. For at least 30 seconds, hold your breath and wait for the medicine to be released. After each use, always replace the mouthpiece cover.
After using the medication wash your mouth and brush your teeth. The residual medication can cause a strange taste or even thrush.
Two puffs twice daily are the recommended dose. However, your doctor will frequently monitor your asthma symptoms and may adjust your dose as necessary. Follow your doctor's advice and never take a lower dose unless instructed to.
The dose indicator counts down each time you use your inhaler. If the numbers drop, it is time to visit your doctor for a replacement.
You should not forget to take your AirFluSal. Instead, skip the missed dose and go straight to the next one. Do not double your dose to make up the one you missed.
You should not take AirFluSal more than you should. Contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately. Overdose can cause your heart to beat faster, make you dizzy, weaker, or give you headaches.
you have allergies to salmeterol, fluticasone propionate or any of the other ingredients of this medicine;
you have heart disease, including an irregular or fast heartbeat;

AirFluSal is a continuous treatment and should not be relied upon in the case of an attack of breathlessness. Always carry a fast-acting “rescue” inhaler for use in these circumstances.
Like any other medicine, AirFluSal may cause the following side effects:
Increased number of colds
Thrush (sore, creamy-yellow, raised patches) in the mouth and throat
Sore tongue and hoarse voice, and throat irritation
Aching, swollen joints and muscle pain
Fever or chills
Bruising and fractures
Inflammation of sinuses
A reduction in the amount of potassium in the blood
If any of these or other side effects persist or worsen, as breathing difficulty, fainting or skin reactions, then consult your doctor immediately.
