Sereflo is a medication that helps with asthma. It prevents attacks of breathlessness and reduces flare-ups.
The medication's active ingredients help to keep 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 the inhaler properly. The Sereflo 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 well. 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, you will need to inhale deeply and slowly. After holding your breath for a few seconds, take the inhaler out of your mouth and slowly exhale. You should wait for a few seconds before you take another puff. After that, replace the cover of the mouthpiece.
After using the medication, wash your mouth and brush your teeth. The residual medication can cause a strange taste or even thrush.
Two inhalations per day are recommended. They should be spaced out (12 hours apart, as that is the time that the medication lasts). This inhaler is only recommended for adults. Your doctor will determine the strength of your inhaler according to your symptoms. You should not change this dose unless you are specifically instructed.
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 Sereflo. However, skip the missed dose and go straight on to the next one. Do not double your dose to make up for the missed dose.
You should not take more Sereflo. Talk to your pharmacist or doctor if you feel you have taken too much. Overdose can cause your heart to beat faster, shake more, and even have headaches.
you are allergic to any of the other ingredients of this medicine or to any other medicine;

Sereflo is a continuous medication and can not be relied upon in case of an attack of breathlessness. Carry a fast-acting “rescue” inhaler for such circumstances.

Joints and muscle pain
Bruising and fractures
Inflammation of sinuses
Decreased levels ps potassium in the blood
If any of these or other side effects persist or worsen, then consult your doctor immediately.
