WARNING: Rarely, serious (sometimes fatal) asthma-related breathing problems have occurred with the use of long-acting inhaled beta agonists (e.g., salmeterol). This product contains salmeterol in combination with fluticasone (a corticosteroid). It is not known if adding a corticosteroid changes this risk. Therefore, in patients with asthma, this drug should only be prescribed when one long-term medication (e.g., inhaled corticosteroids) does not control breathing problems or when more than one long-term medication is clearly needed to control breathing problems. Before using this medication, it is important to learn how to use it properly. Discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with this medication with your doctor.
