Advair HFA contains 2 medicines, fluticasone propionate (Flovent) and salmeterol (Serevent). Fluticasone is an inhaled corticosteroid medicine, which helps to decrease inflammation in the lungs. Inflammation in the lungs can lead to asthma symptoms. Salmeterol is a long-acting beta2-agonist (LABA) medicine used to help relax the muscles around the airways in your lungs, helping to prevent symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and shortness of breath. Advair HFA is used in the treatment of asthma and also to prevent symptoms of asthma in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older.
