Seventeen subjects with mild-to-moderate asthma completedthis randomized, double blind, cross-over, double-dummy study. On four studydays, baseline forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) was recorded and thesubjects were challenged with methacholine until FEV1 fell by at least 30%.

Comparison of the effectiveness and safety of formoterol versus salmeterol in the treatment of patients with asthma: A systematic review and meta-analysis. By Ashraf Velayati, Seyed Alireza Hosseini, Ali Akbari Sari, Farideh Mohtasham, Mostafa Ghanei, Mohsen Yaghoubi and Reza Majdzadeh.
Foradil (formoterol) is good for controlling and preventing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) symptoms, but it's not a rescue inhaler and requires a jet nebulizer machine. Serevent Diskus (salmeterol) works well to control both asthma and COPD but doesn't have the same anti-inflammatory effect that inhaled corticosteroids have, so you can't use Serevent Diskus (salmeterol) alone to.

Product overview Drug action Flutiform(4)is a CFC-free aerosol combination of fluticasone propionate (an ICS) and formoterol fumarate (a LABA) in a pressurised metered dose inhaler. The potency of fluticasone is approximately double that of beclometasone (except Qvar and Fostair devices) or budesonide(5). Formoterol has a more rapid onset of action than salmeterol(6).Learn More

Doctors give trusted answers on uses, effects, side-effects, and cautions: Dr. Ahdoot on seretide vs symbicort: You can't really compare the two. They are 2 different meds with two different indications.Learn More
Design: open-label non-inferiority randomised trial. Population: 202 people aged 18 years and over with mild-to-moderate to severe persistent asthma for at least 6 months. More than 90% were taking an ICS at baseline and 77% were taking a LABA.Learn More
Comparison of the Bronchodilating Effects of Inhaled Formoterol, Salmeterol and Salbutamol in Asthmatic Patients.Learn More
Background: Formoterol and salmeterol are two long-acting b 2-agonists given by inhalation, with bronchodilating effects lasting for at least 12 h after a single administration. Formoterol has a faster onset of action compared with salmeterol. The aim of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis on the data published from previous review in order to calculate pooled.Learn More
New long-acting beta 2-adrenoceptor agonists, salmeterol and formoterol, have recently been marketed for treatment of asthma, but studies comparing the clinical efficacy of the two drugs have not been published. We report on an asthmatic patient who had a striking difference in bronchodilating effect of the two drugs, formoterol being more effective than salmeterol both in immediate response.Learn More
Unlike formoterol, salmeterol has a slower onset of action because of its higher lipophilicity. This is because the drug has a functional group called aryl alkyl group. This functional group has a chain length composed of eleven atoms from the amine.Learn More
To ensure safe use, the CHM has advised that for the management of chronic asthma, long-acting beta 2 agonist (salmeterol) should:. be added only if regular use of standard-dose inhaled corticosteroids has failed to control asthma adequately.Learn More
Long-acting Bronchodilators: Salmeterol, Formoterol, and Arformoterol What are they? Long-acting bronchodilators are medicines that relax and open your airways. When used every day, long-acting bronchodilators will help prevent asthma symptoms. They can work to prevent symptoms for up to 12 hours. Long-acting bronchodilators include.Learn More
