Question: I have taken the inhaler Advair discus in the past.The strength is 250/50.
It's bee about a year since I've used it for my asthma cough. Today my nose and sore throat turned into a cough. My primary care doctor isn't able to take my call at this late hour. I have an XXXXXXX discus but **I forgot the dosage. I seem to remember three puffs per day but I want to check it out with you.
Thanks so much!

Brief Answer:
Twice per day inhaler.

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

Usually, we recommend Advair inhaler in two dosages or puffs per day.

But it would be better to use it for one month in such conditions.

You will be better soon again.

Hope to have been helpful.

Take care.
