Are There Any Side Effects When Using Different Asthma Medications?
I want to ask about the difference between 50/250 seretide and 50/500, because at first my mother used to use 250 and this accidentally bought 500, are there any side effects when using 250 with 500 different?
Hello Hendra, thank you for asking.
The drug you mentioned is intended to treat bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This drug is a hard drug that requires a prescription to be purchased at a pharmacy. Its composition consists of salmeterol xinafoate and fluticasone propionate. The written number is the dose of the drug contained in it. Therefore, between the numbers 50/250 and 50/500 certainly differ in dosage. The dose of fluticasone is greater in 50/500 type drugs.
We recommend using drugs that are in accordance with the recommended dosage. Consult with the doctor who treats your mother. If the doctor allows you to use type 50/500 drugs, then please start therapy. If not, then the drug must be replaced with the right dose. Side effects may appear, such as:
Headache. Raspy. Pain or dryness in the throat. Heart beat. Sleep disturbance. Worry. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. So, make sure your mother consult with a doctor first, to make sure whether or not the drugs can be used.
