Flovent and Advair Together

Has anyone heard of taking Advair and Flovent together at the same time?

Re: Flovent and Advair Together

No, you would take one or the other- not together. Flovent is just an inhaled steroid, while Advair is an inhaled steriod combined with a salmeterol. You would take Advair if your asthma wasn't controlled by Flovent.

Re: Flovent and Advair Together

Only if you need a very high dose of steroid, I suppose. Normally it's one or the other.
