Serevent is a controversial asthma drug marketed by GlaxoSmithKline. It is known generically as Salmeterol. In the past, it used to be available in metered-dose inhalers, but today it is available only as a dry powder inhaler. The Food and Drug Administration has issued a number of warnings to the consumers about the potential dangers of this drug. The unfortunate side effects of Serevent include the propensity to cause death. In fact, a number of deaths have been reported from the use of Serevent.
FDA regulators have been pressing for greater regulation of anti-asthma drugs that use the ingredient Salmeterol, because of the clinically conducted studies that have demonstrated certain inhalers increase the risk of death. On study found that out of 13,176 patients taking Serevent, 13 of them suffered asthma-related deaths, while only 3 in the similarly sized control group suffered similar fates.
A different, older study showed that 37 people had died as a result of taking Serevent. These deaths likely occurred because Serevent can produce bronchial inflammation and sensitivity at the same time as it relieves common asthma symptoms. Furthermore, patients have been told to seek medical attention if thy experience fast heart rates, high blood pressure, and worsening breathing problems.
In 2005, the FDA issued a Black Box Warning about Serevent causing severe asthma attacks that might lead to death.
