Advair Diskus Inhaler treats and prevents wheezing and shortness of breath brought on by chronic lung conditions including asthma (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema). Fluticasone and salmeterol are two of the drugs it contains. 

Fluticasone is a member of the corticosteroid medication subclass. It lessens airway inflammation and edema, which is how it works. The group of medicines known as long-acting beta-agonists includes salmeterol. It loosens the muscles that surround the airways, allowing them to open and facilitating easier breathing.

Enclose the mouthpiece with your lips. Through your mouth, take a long, deep breath. Keeping your mouth shut, hold your breath for 5 to 10 seconds, or as long as you can comfortably do so. Once we rinse the mouth, one can spit out the water. The dosing instructions are explained to the patient. It is in addition to the side effects of the drug.
