Sirdupla is a medicine that helps manage severe asthma and other breathing problems. This is a maintenance inhaler that is designed for long-term treatment of the ailment rather than short-term relief. Sirdupla contains two active ingredients namely, Salmeterol and Fluticasone Propionate. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that works to keep the airways to the lungs open. Its effects last for up to 12 hours. Fluticasone Propionate is a glucocorticosteroid that reduces inflammation and irritation in the lungs.

Salbutamol is a fast-acting medication designed for quick relief in an attack of breathlessness. This medication is recommended as a ‘rescue’ inhaler for people suffering from asthma and other breathing problems. Usually, Salbutamol is given in the form of an inhaler. This is a medication that falls under the category of bronchodilators. It works by relaxing the muscles of the lungs and airways to make it easier for you to breathe. 

Salbutamol and Sirdupla are both medicines prescribed to people suffering from asthma or other breathing problems. However, there are two major differences in these medications –

  • Sirdupla is a medication that helps manage asthma and other breathing problems. This medication is effective when used regularly over the long term.
  • Salbutamol is a rescue medication that should be used when you experience breathlessness or tightness of the chest.
  • Patients with asthma are usually advised to use Sirdupla for long-term relief and Salbutamol for emergency use to take when experiencing an attack.

Patients with asthma are advised to use Sirdupla everyday even if they have no symptoms. And Salbutamol only when they have symptoms or attacks of breathlessness.

Sirdupla is an effective medication to manage asthma and other breathing problems. It helps to prevent attacks of breathlessness and to reduce the intensity and frequency of flare-ups.

The two active ingredients in Sirdupla work to relax the muscles of the lungs and airways to help you breathe more easily. The medication also reduces the inflammation and irritation in the lungs.

There are two active ingredients in Sirdupla, namely - salmeterol and fluticasone propionate. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator ingredient that effectively activates the beta-2 receptors in the airways to relax the muscles in the airways to make breathing easier. Fluticasone Propionate is a glucocorticosteroid that helps to reduce the swelling and irritation in the lungs and airways for patients with asthma and other breathing problems. 

Sirdupla is a medication recommended to patients with asthma and other breathing problems. There are various benefits of taking Sirdupla –

  • Sirdupla comprises a highly effective bronchodilator called salmeterol which works to relax the muscles of the airways and lungs. Its effects last for up to 12 hours.

  • With regular use, Sirdupla can help reduce the frequency and intensity of flare-ups and attacks of breathlessness in asthma.

  • As Sirdupla is administered in the form of an inhaler, the medication reaches the lungs directly. This significantly reduces the quantity of medication needed in one dose thereby reducing the risks of side effects.

  • Asthma can be a debilitating condition that makes it difficult for you to go about your daily activities. Sirdupla can help you manage your condition to help you function normally.

  • The effectiveness of this medication increases with regular use over a long duration.

Usually, for asthma and other breathing problems, the recommended dosage is two inhalations, twice a day. It is advisable to place these doses 12 hours apart. If you forget a dose, skip the missed dose and continue to take the medication as usual. Do not take a double dose to make up for the missed one.
