Salmeterol - Overview
Salmeterol, marketed under the brand name Serevent, is a medication used as maintenance treatment in some people with asthma. People who need a salmeterol prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe salmeterol inhaler medication when appropriate to do so.
What Is Salmeterol?
Salmeterol xinafoate prescription medication belongs to a class of medications known as long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonists. Salmeterol medication is sometimes prescribed for maintenance treatment of asthma and reducing bronchospasm in certain patients. Salmeterol has high selectivity for beta2-adrenoceptors which are present in bronchial smooth muscle. Salmeterol's mechanism of action is thought to involve the stimulation of various enzymes that increase cyclic AMP levels and cause relaxation of the smooth muscle. The salmeterol inhaler also seems to have other effects on plasma proteins and eosinophils and the medication is frequently combined with fluticasone in the branded medications Advair and Wixela.
Salmeterol - Dosage and Price
Salmeterol prescription medication is meant to be administered via the orally inhaled route. The typical dosage of salmeterol is salmeterol 50 mg - one inhalation twice daily in the morning and evening. Salmeterol xinafoate itself is minimally soluble in water and is found as a white powder. The therapeutic effect of salmeterol is not contingent on plasma levels as salmeterol works locally in the lung. Salmeterol is extensively bound to proteins in the plasma and is largely excreted in the feces. Salmeterol is expensive, costing almost $400 for one salmeterol inhaler containing 60 blisters of 50 mcg of salmeterol. Salmeterol coupons may be available online and some insurance plans will cover costs associated with a salmeterol inhaler prescription.
Can I Buy Salmeterol Online?
Salmeterol is a prescription medication and one cannot just buy salmeterol online without first consulting a medical provider to get a salmeterol prescription. Because of these restrictions, salmeterol OTC is not available. People who need a salmeterol prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe salmeterol inhaler medication when appropriate to do so.
Salmeterol - Side Effects
Salmeterol prescription inhalers can cause side effects when used. Side effects that can occur from salmeterol medication use include chest pain, palpitations, tremor, anxiety and feelings of nervousness. Salmeterol and alcohol should typically not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to salmeterol should not use the medication. Before using salmeterol prescription medication, it is recommended to discuss possible side effects and other concerns with one's medical provider and pharmacist.
