Serevent and Advair
Cellino & Barnes is currently evaluating cases of injury due to the use of asthma medication marketed under the names Serevent and Advair. Serevent and Advair are prescribed to help control and prevent symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and shortness of breath. They also allow the muscles around the lungs to stay relaxed.
A new “black box” warning cautions users of salmeterol, one of the active ingredients in Advair and the active ingredient in Serevent of the increased risk of asthma-related deaths.
The new Advair and Serevent labels advise the drugs should only be used when other asthma medications do not work, or if the asthma is so severe, the medication would be beneficial for the patient.
If you or a loved one has been injured and believe it may have been as a result of taking Serevent or Advair, call us now at (800) 888-8888 or contact us.
