I couldn't find enough reviews to come to a conclusion about which medicine would be best for asthma maintenance.
Both Advair and Dulera contain a bronchodilator and a steroid, so they should have the same effects. But then different people have different experiences with different medicines.
Advair contains fluticasone and salmeterol.
Fluticasone is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. Salmeterol is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing muscles in the airways to improve breathing.
Fluticasone and salmeterol inhalation is used to prevent asthma attacks. It is also used to prevent flare-ups or worsening of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) associated with chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema.
Dulera Inhalers contains a combination formoterol and mometasone. Formoterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways to improve breathing. Mometasone is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.
Dulera is used as a maintenance treatment for asthma in adults and children who are at least 12 years old. This medication is not for use in treating an asthma or bronchospasm attack.
