What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Advair

    Does Advair have a steroid in it?

    Yes, Advair contains a combination of fluticasone (a steroid) and salmeterol (a bronchodilator). Fluticasone prevents the release of substances causing inflammation, while salmeterol relaxes airway muscles.

    What does Advair do for your lungs?

    Advair helps prevent asthma attacks and flare-ups in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It improves breathing by relaxing airway muscles.

    What to avoid when taking Advair?

    Avoid using another medicine containing a long-acting beta-agonist (LABA) while on Advair. It won’t replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. Rinse your mouth after use to prevent fungal infections.

    Who shouldn't take Advair?

    Do not use Advair if you are allergic to fluticasone, salmeterol, or milk proteins. Severe allergy to milk proteins is a contraindication.
