What is Seroflo Inhaler?

Seroflo Inhaler is a combination inhaler that is used for the prevention of asthma symptoms. It contains two different active ingredients, which work in slightly different ways to reduce your risk of an asthma attack.

Seroflo inhalers contain fluticasone, a preventer medication which reduces lung inflammation, and salmeterol, a reliever medication that opens the airways during an attack. You can get Seroflo inhalers in two forms: a metered dose inhaler or MDI (a more traditional aerosol inhaler) or a Rotahaler (like a diskus inhaler).

How does Seroflo Inhaler work?

Salmeterol and fluticasone are the active ingredients in Seroflo. It’s a double action inhaler – it prevents the symptoms of asthma and gives ongoing relief when used regularly.

The fluticasone in Seroflo Inhaler prevents the cells in your lungs from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation; and the salmeterol in Seroflo Inhaler relaxes the muscles in the airways to keep them open and help you breathe easier.

What’s the difference between Seroflo normal Inhaler and Seroflo Rotahaler?

Both Seroflo MDI and Seroflo Rotahaler deliver a measured dose of their active ingredients into the lungs, but the way they do it is a little different.

The regular MDI is a canister filled with liquid, while the Rotahaler contains dry powder. And the way you administer them is slightly different too. With the MDI, you need to manually push down on the canister to release the spray. But the Rotahaler is ‘breath-actuated’. There’s a lever that you slide on the inhaler to prepare it, and you can then inhale the dose from there.

Are there different Seroflo Inhaler doses?

Yes. Seroflo inhaler comes in a range of doses— 50mcg, 125mcg and 250mcg. Seroflo also comes in tablet forms (rotacaps) of 100mcg, 250mcg and 500mcg. These tablets are for inhalation only and shouldn’t be swallowed.

The right dose of Seroflo depends on the severity of your asthma. Our doctors can advise you on a suitable dose and explain how often you should use your inhaler or rotacap.

How to use Seroflo Inhaler

Seroflo comes with an information leaflet that explains how to use the Seroflo MDI and how to use the Seroflo Rotahaler.

It’s important to learn how to use your inhaler properly. If you’re unsure on how to use Seroflo, our doctor can help. Just sign in to your account and send them a message.

Seroflo Rotahaler instructions

  • Hold the outer case in one hand, and put the thumb of your other hand on the thumb grip
  • Push your thumb away until you hear a click
  • Slide the lever away from you until you hear a click and see the dose counter decrease by ‘1’
  • Put the mouthpiece to your lips and breathe in through your mouth
  • Remove the rotahaler from your mouth
  • Wait 10 seconds before taking another dose
  • After the final dose, rinse your mouth with water

Seroflo Inhaler instructions

  • Breathe slowly
  • Stand or sit upright
  • Remove the mouthpiece cover
  • Check that the mouthpiece is clear
  • Shake the inhaler four or five times
  • Hold the inhaler upright with your thumb at the base of the mouthpiece
  • Breathe out as far as possible
  • Place the mouthpiece between your teeth and seal your lips around it
  • Breathe in through your mouth as you press down on the top of the canister
  • Hold your breath for a few seconds
  • Wait 30 seconds before taking another dose
  • After taking the final dose, rinse your mouth with water

How long does Seroflo Inhaler take to work?

It should start working within a few hours, but Seroflo can take two to four weeks to become fully effective. In clinical trials, 50% of participants achieved a ‘well controlled’ week after 16 days of treatment with Seroflo (fluticasone + salmeterol). For those steroids alone in the same study, this was 37 days.

If you’ve been using Seroflo for a while and don’t think it’s helping to improve your symptoms, it’s best to let your doctor know, so they can look at tweaking your dose or suggest a treatment that works better for you.

FAQ: Seroflo Inhaler

Have something specific you want to know about Seroflo Inhaler? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Is Seroflo Inhaler a steroid inhaler?

Answer:
Seroflo Inhaler contains a corticosteroid called fluticasone. This reduces inflammation in the lungs by preventing your cells from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation in the lungs and airways.

The other active ingredient, salmeterol, is a long acting beta-2 agonist. This helps to open up the airways and makes breathing easier.

Which is better: Seroflo Rotahaler or Seroflo Normal Inhaler?

Answer:
It depends what you find easier to use, and which dose you need. They both do the same job, just in different ways. And the dosing is slightly different. Your doctor can help you decide which inhaler is best for you.

The active ingredients in Seroflo Inhaler enter your lungs as a mist, and the same active ingredients are found in the Seroflo Rotahaler in powder form. The inhalers look different. The MDI is an ‘L’ shaped inhaler, and the Rotahaler is barrel-shaped.

Some people find the Seroflo Rotahaler easier to use because there’s no need to time your breathing as you take the dose of medicine.

The traditional aerosol inhaler (which is what Seroflo MDI is a modern equivalent of) has been a popular form of treatment for asthma for over 50 years. Being easy to manufacture makes it highly affordable. Children and older people can find it difficult to time their breathing correctly when using an MDI and this reduces the amount of medicine that reaches the lungs. Historically there has been concern about the environmental impact of aerosol inhalers and their effect on the ozone layer, but many inhalers, including Seroflo, are now made using CFC-free propellants.

Is Seroflo Inhaler safe during pregnancy?

Answer:
Yes. It’s safe to use Seroflo Inhaler during pregnancy.

If you have asthma, you are likely to be closely monitored throughout your pregnancy due to the changes that your body goes through when you’re pregnant.

Is Seroflo Inhaler the same as Serobid?

Answer:
Seroflo and Serobid are different. The two active ingredients (fluticasone and salmeterol) in Seroflo mean that it’s a combination treatment, while Serobid only has one ingredient (salmeterol xinafoate).

Serobid is a preventer inhaler that is used regularly to keep asthma flare ups under control. They both contain the same reliever ingredient (salmeterol), though.

Are there alternatives to Seroflo Inhaler?

Answer:
There are other combination inhalers that can be used as an alternative to Seroflo Inhaler.

Combiwave SF, Flutidin S, Ludoflu-S, Salflute and Flutrol 250 contain the same active ingredients (salmeterol and fluticasone) and work in a similar way.

Can Seroflo Inhaler also be used in COPD?

Answer:
Yes. Seroflo Inhaler can be used to treat asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) because it helps to prevent and relieve the effects of inflammation in the lungs. But the dose of Seroflo Inhaler prescribed for COPD may be different to that prescribed for asthma.

COPD is the name given to a group of lung conditions that cause breathing difficulties including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Do I need a prescription for Seroflo Inhaler?

Answer:
Yes. Seroflo Inhaler is a prescription only treatment, so our doctor will need to make sure that it’s a safe and suitable treatment option for you, and they’ll need to ensure that you’re taking the correct dose to control your asthma.

Can you take Seroflo Inhaler and Ventolin together?

Answer:
You can take Seroflo and Ventolin alongside each other, because they’re different types of inhalers. Seroflo is an inhaler that helps to prevent asthma, and you’ll use it as a regular medicine you take every day at fixed times. Ventolin is an on-demand inhaler that helps to relieve asthma symptoms when you get them. So, they do different jobs.

On occasion, you might be advised to use your reliever inhaler immediately before your preventer inhaler, because this can sometimes help you administer the preventer dose better.
