Uses
Serevent Accuhaler (Salmeterol) is given to patients as a maintenance (long term) treatment aimed at preventing asthma attacks and breathing difficulties caused by lung diseases such as emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may sometimes be used to prevent bronchospasms caused by exercise. Doctors will generally only prescribe it if treatment with other medications, such as corticosteroids fails to control the symptoms. It is normally used in combination with other medications, such as corticosteroids.

Dosage and Administration
Serevent Accuhaler (Salmeterol) is administered via inhalation, using the inhaler provided. The effects are normally noticed 10 to 20 minutes after administration, and may last for up to 12 hours. A medical consultation is required prior to use, so that the correct dosage can be prescribed. You must only administer the dosage prescribed by your doctor. Adult patients treating asthma may be told to administer 1 puff twice per day. Those affected by severe asthma may be told to inhale 2 puffs twice per day. Treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease usually requires 1 puff twice per day. Children are normally prescribed a different dose than adults.

If you are unsure of how to use the inhaler, ask your doctor for instructions or refer to the leaflet provided with the medication. Improper use of the inhaler could lead to decreased effectiveness. To use it, hold the inhaler in one hand and put the thumb of your other hand on the grip. Push the thumb away from your body until you hear a click. This opens the inhaler. To place the medication in the inhaler, you must turn the mouthpiece towards your body and slide the lever away until a click is heard. Insert the mouthpiece into your lips, and breathe in deeply through your mouth. Remove the inhaler and hold your breath for 10 seconds, after which you may slowly exhale. You may wish to rinse your mouth with water after using the inhaler, so as to prevent throat irritation or infection.

Side effects
You may notice some side effects when using Serevent Accuhaler (Salmeterol) such as:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Tremors
  • Irritation of the throat
  • Ear pain
  • Sleep disturbances

While you are using this medication to treat your condition, it is necessary to tell your doctor if any side effects persist or become bothersome. There is also a slight possibility that this medication may cause serious and harmful side effects. Immediately consult your doctor if you notice chest pain, a worsening of asthma symptoms, muscle weakness, pain, bruising or any other symptoms not listed here.

Precautions
If you experience breathing difficulties immediately after administering this medication, you should stop using this inhaler. Your doctor will most likely tell you to use a quick relief inhaler when this occurs, and to seek immediate medical attention.

If you have a history of diabetes or heart complaints, high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid, seizures or liver disease, it is essential that you inform your doctor before taking this medication.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Serevent Accuhaler (Salmeterol) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
