Uses of Seretide Accuhaler 50/500mcg
Seretide Accuhaler 50/500mcg is a mixture of two medicines – Salmeterol and Fluticasone Propionate. It helps patients breathe easier and treats asthmatic symptoms like shortness of breath and wheezing.

On the other hand, Fluticasone Propionate is a type of steroid that inhibits the release of a chemical messenger that triggers inflammation or swelling in the airways.
