Seretide Evohaler comes in three different doses, allowing flexibility of dosing for your patient with asthma at low, medium and high dose inhaled steroid4
Seretide Evohaler 50/25 is licensed for use in paediatric asthma for patients 4 years and above.4
Low Dose (50/25 two puffs B.D)
Medium Dose (125/25 two puffs B.D)
over £5 cheaper than Fostair 100/6 (two puffs B.D)1,2
High Dose (250/25 two puffs B.D)
same price as Fostair 200/6 (two puffs B.D)2,5
Seretide is proven to achieve and maintain guideline-defined asthma control3

The optimal particle size range for delivery to the lungs is 1-5um. Seretide particles are within this range10
There is no evidence that extrafine particles are associated with additional clinically relevant benefits compared with Seretide11,12
This was observed for a number of efficacy endpoints in an extensive scientific literature review and systematic analysis of RCT data, including:
Therefore you can be confident that particle size does not need to be a factor when choosing between Seretide and Fostair.
When clinically indicated, maintenance and reliever therapy (MART) can be a viable option for patients. However, are you aware of some of its limitations?
Less than 20% of MART-treated patients achieved control, according to GINA criteria13,14
MART-treated patients are only rescue free 4 days a week and many still use a separate reliever15
1 in 5 MART-treated patients have a severe exacerbation each year15
