Advair, which is a combination of fluticasone and salmeterol, is a treatment used for the management of asthma. It is marketed by GlaxoSmithKline, and its total sales are around $7 billion dollars a year. Advair is a combination of inhaled steroids and long acting beta-adrenoceptor agonist (LABA). There have been concerns that the drugs that make up Advair have serious side effects. For example, salmeterol might increase the chance of asthma-related death. Other drugs that might exacerbate asthma problems in similar ways are Serevent and Foradil.

In effect, these drugs (LABAs) reduce the frequency of asthma attacks, but might in certain circumstances make those attacks be more likely to cause serious injury. The steroid component, the anti-inflammatory component, of Advair is meant to reduce the severity of the symptoms.

The FDA has issued warnings against taking Advair, and it has has been suggested that it should not be used as a first-line treatment against asthma. Additionally, some studies have claimed that Africa-Americans are at higher risk of injury from taking Advair.

Advair side effects include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Oral Candidasis
  • More Severe Asthma Attacks
  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • Bronchial Inflammation
  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • Increased risk of Osteoporosis
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Death

While the number of deaths and serious injuries has been comparatively small as compared to some other dangerous drugs, there have been enough deaths that would suggest that there exists a real correlation.
