Pulmicort can't replace Advair because Advair has a steroid and a beta agonist in it, whereas Pulmicort only has a steroid in it.

Pulmicort can't replace Spiriva. Spiriva is an anticholinergic agent. It works by enlarging the airways to allow easier breathing. It comes as a capsule containing dry powder, which is inhaled through the mouth using the HandiHaler device.
