Advair Diskus is intended to be used long-term. You need to keep taking the medicine until your doctor tells you otherwise.
Advair Diskus Powder is a long-acting corticosteroid and bronchodilator combination. It works by reducing inflammation and widening the airways in the lungs, which helps you breath more easily.
