Reviews for Salmeterol

Serevent Diskus (salmeterol) for Bronchospasm Prophylaxis: "I have had Asthma since very young. Until I started using Serevent, I had some type of bronchitis, or pneumonia every 2 months and was constantly on antibiotics. Since using Serevent, regularly, I may have one episode a year of bronchitis, Upper Respiratory or pneumonia. To me Serevent has been a life saver and life changer. Just wish they would come out with a Generic."

For Asthma, Maintenance: "Do not take an overdose on this medication. Even just a few puffs left me shaking vigorously feeling dizzy and heavily belching., Not only that but caused me to pass out. Furthermore, weeks later, you are still not right and you will be more sensitive to light."

For COPD, Maintenance: "I have had mild asthma from being a child, however due to smoking I now have both asthma and COPD. I have always struggled with beta-2 agonists like albuterol or terbutaline becuase they caused a lot of side effects for me such as palpitations, tremor and nervousness. I relied heavily on ipratropium (Atrovent) and inhaled beclomethasone before trying salmeterol. This is a great drug because it prevents wheezing, tightness, coughing and breathlessness without causing and side effects. I take it before going out of the house on errands or physical activity and in combination with the steroid I now rarely need to use ipratropium as a rescue medication. I have tried both the powdered form and the MDI and I can definitely say the MDI is better."
