Serevent Medication - Uses & Side Effects
Generic Name: Salmeterol xinafoate
Salmeterol is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing muscles in the airways to improve breathing. SALMETEROL (Serevent®) is a slow-acting bronchodilator, a medicine that opens up air passages and makes breathing easier. Salmeterol is for regular use to help prevent asthma attacks or to treat the symptoms of chronic lung disease like emphysema or chronic bronchitis. It can also be used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm, at least 30 to 60 minutes before exercise is started. You must have a quick-acting bronchodilator (such as albuterol) readily available for use in an asthma attack.
