Breo Ellipta and Advair Diskus are both preventative medicines used to treat asthma or COPD (chronic obstructive respiratory disease).
Advair Diskus and Breo Ellipta both contain a corticosteroid (fluticasone) to treat the underlying inflammation component of asthma, and long-acting bronchodilators (salmeterol and vilanterol respectively) to prevent the bronchospasm (airway narrowing) component of asthma. Salmeterol and vilanterol are beta-adrenergic medicines that causes bronchodilation (relaxes smooth muscles).
Advair Diskus is usually taken twice a day compared to Breo Ellipta which only needs to taken just once a day.
In the short term it will probably be ok but check with your doctor first.
