Combitide 250 Inhaler 9.2 gm is a combination of two medicines, namely: Salmeterol (bronchodilator) and Fluticasone. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles in the airways and increases airflow to the lungs. It makes breathing easier by widening the airways. Fluticasone belongs to the class of corticosteroids. It acts by blocking prostaglandins’ production (chemical messengers) that cause inflammation (swelling) of the airways.
