What is Seroflo 500

Seroflo 500 Rotacap combines two medicines that make breathing easier by opening the airways. 

It contains two salts: Fluticasone Propionate (500mcg) and Salmeterol (50mcg). 

Effectively treats Asthma (wheezing and shortness of breath) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD).

Seroflo Rotacaps 500 is manufactured by Cipla. 

Your doctor will prescribe and tell you how often you must use a Seroflo inhaler. 

Seroflo 500 Uses

Seroflo inhaler 500 can help prevent an asthma attack if you take it before exercise or some triggers. This medicine allows you to exercise more without worrying about wheezing, coughing, or shortness of breath.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a lung disease that lasts for a long time and makes it hard to get the air out of the lungs (airflow obstruction). 

Because of this blockage, patients have trouble breathing or get tired quickly due to breathing strain. COPD is an umbrella concept for chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and a combination of the two.

Asthma

Asthma is a condition that makes the airways inflamed and narrow and might make more mucus. 

It can make breathing hard and cause coughing, a whistling sound when you breathe out (called wheezing), and shortness of breath.

Working of Seroflo 500

Seroflo 500 Rotacaps combine two salts, Salmeterol and Fluticasone Propionate. 

Salmeterol is a long-acting beta2-adrenergic receptor agonist. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and making them wider. 

Fluticasone Propionate is a known steroid. It works by reducing the generation of prostaglandins (chemical messengers) that produce airway inflammation (swelling). Fluticasone contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

Together, they help treat the symptoms by making breathing easier.
