About Advair Diskus (Fluticasone-Salmeterol)
How does it work?
Advair Diskus (Fluticasone-Salmeterol) contains two medicines that help the lungs. Fluticasone is a corticosteroid that helps soothe inflammation (swelling) in the lungs. Salmeterol is a bronchodilator, which helps open up the airways. Together, they are more effective than either medicine by itself.
What does it treat?
Advair Diskus is an asthma treatment that helps manage asthma symptoms. It can also help reduce the number of asthma attacks and how severe they are. It’s not a rescue inhaler, so don’t use it if you’re actively having an asthma attack.
What forms does it come in?
Advair Diskus comes as a special inhaler. It releases medicine as you inhale.
Advair Diskus vs. Fluticasone-Salmeterol
Advair Diskus and Fluticasone-Salmeterol are the same medicine. Advair Diskus is just the brand name version of this asthma treatment. Depending on your insurance, Fluticasone-Salmeterol may be less expensive.
How much will it cost?
Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If an asthma prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Fluticasone 100 mcg-Salmeterol 50 mcg/Dose Blistr (Powder Inhaler) start at $77.98.
