Seretide is indicated in the regular treatment of asthma where use of a combination product (long- acting β2 agonist and inhaled corticosteroid) is appropriate:
The recommended dose of Seretide Evohaler 25/50mcg, 25/125mcg or 25/250mcg is two inhalations, twice daily.
Seretide Evohaler comes in three different doses allowing flexibility of dosing for your patient with asthma at low, medium and high dose steroid1.
GSK has reduced the list price for Seretide Evohaler 25/125mg and 25/250mcg between August 2018 and December 2018. GSK anticipates that new prices will be reflected in the January 2019 Drug Tariff update4.
The Seretide Evohaler list price reductions are great news for patients with asthma who prefer a MDI and even better news for those who are already using a Seretide Evohaler.

At high dose, Seretide Evohaler 25/250mcg is the same price as Fostair 200/6 mcg at £29.32.
Cost savings are no longer a driver to switch away from Seretide Evohaler to Fostair Inhaler, allowing for choice of inhaler to be based on patient preference.
