About Advair HFA (Fluticasone Propionate-Salmeterol)
How does it work?
Advair HFA contains two medications: Fluticasone and Salmeterol. Fluticasone reduces inflammation (swelling) in the airways and Salmeterol relaxes the muscles in the airways. They work together to make it easier to breathe for people who have asthma.
What does it treat?
Advair HFA is an asthma medicine that helps people manage symptoms like chest tightness, wheezing and trouble breathing. It can also help prevent asthma attacks when used regularly. It’s not a rescue inhaler, so don’t use it if you’re having an asthma attack.
What forms does it come in?
Advair HFA is available as an inhaler that delivers medicine directly to your lungs.
Advair HFA vs. Fluticasone Propionate-Salmeterol
Advair HFA and Fluticasone Propionate-Salmeterol are the same medicine. Advair HFA is the brand-name version. Fluticasone Propionate-Salmeterol is the generic version and may be available at a lower cost depending on your insurance.
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 Propionate 45 mcg-Salmeterol 21 mcg/Actuation (120 inhalation canister) start at $199.86.
