February 20, 2008 | by DoctorSolve

Salmeterol Xinafoate (Serevent Diskus) is an aerosol inhaler used for the treatment of Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including emphysema and chronic bronchitis. It works by relaxing the muscles in the walls of the bronchial tubes, allowing the passageways to expand and carry more air.
