SEREVENT: Twice-a-day prevention of asthma symptoms. SEREVENT is the only long-acting, inhaled bronchodilator. SEREVENT is designed to help prevent your asthma symptoms before they start. When used just two puffs, twice a day - morning and evening - approximately 12 hours apart, SEREVENT helps keep air passages open so your breathing remains free and clear. Results compared to fast-acting bronchodilators: • Less chance of waking up in the middle of the night, coughing or wheezing • Fewer symptoms with exercise • Fewer episodes of difficult breathing With SEREVENT as one part of your treatment program, you may be able to reduce the number of times you have to use your fast-acting bronchodilator and get on with your life with less fear that asthma symptoms might be sneaking up on you. SEREVENT: What you need to know. •SEREVENTis not a substitute for fast-acting bronchodilators to treat sudden asthma symptoms and should never be taken more than twice a day. SEREVENT is a preventive medication that takes longer to be effective. So when sudden asthma symptoms occur, you will still need your fast-acting bronchodilator prescribed by your doctor. •SEREVENT also is not a substitute for medication that controls inflammation in your lungs (inhaled or oral corticosteroids). SEREVENT can be a valuable preventive medication, but it is intended to be just one part of your treatment program. •Do not stop or change the dosage of your other asthma medications without talking toyour doctor. Even if you feel better, any change in dosage or medication could result in your condition worsening. Of course, if your condition worsens, contact your doctor immediately. Is SEREVENT right for you? Only your doctor can decide. SEREVENT is available by prescription only and is indicated for patients 12 and older. The most common side effects of SEREVENT are: headache (10%), tremor (3%), and cough (3%). Of course, no medication works unless you are committed to stick with it. So see your doctor about SEREVENT. It can help you control your asthma instead of letting your asthma control you.
