Seretide contains two medicines, salmeterol and fluticasone propionate: Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator. Bronchodilators help the airways in the lungs to stay open. This makes it easier for air to get in and out. The effects last for at least 12 hours. Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid which reduces swelling and irritation in the lungs.
How to clean Seretide?
Cleaning your inhaler to stop your inhaler blocking, it is important to clean it at least once a week. To clean your inhaler:
- Wipe the inside and outside of the mouthpiece and the plastic casing with a dry cloth or tissue.
- Remove the mouthpiece cover.
- Do not remove the metal canister from the plastic casing at any time.
- Replace the mouthpiece cover. It will ‘click’ into place when fitted correctly. If it does not ‘click’ into place, turn the mouthpiece cover the other way round and try again. Do not use too much force.

Thrush (sore, creamy-yellow, raised patches) in the mouth and throat. Also sore tongue and hoarse voice and throat irritation.
