About Combitide 250mcg Octacap 30s

Combitide 250mcg Octacap 30s is a respiratory medication, primarily used to treat and prevent asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) like bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes) and emphysema (shortness of breath). Asthma is a chronic (long-term) respiratory condition in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs.

Combitide 250mcg Octacap 30s is a combination of two drugs: Salmeterol (bronchodilator) and Fluticasone propionate (corticosteroid). Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator which works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways. Thus, it makes breathing easier. Fluticasone propionate belongs to the class of corticosteroids that works by acting on the nasal lining's inner cells and stops releasing certain chemicals in the body that cause inflammatory reactions. Thereby, provides relief from sneezing, runny or blocked nose and sinus discomfort.
