What is Sirdupla?

Sirdupla is a treatment for asthma and other breathing problems and is taken with an inhaler. It helps the airways in the lungs to stay open and avoid breathing troubles associated with asthma and other conditions that can cause breathlessness.

How does Sirdupla work?

Sirdupla contains two active substances which are called salmeterol and fluticasone propionate. Salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that works on the lungs to keep them open and make it easier for air to travel in and out of them. The effects of salmeterol last for at least 12 hours. Fluticasone propionate is a glucocorticosteroid, which basically means it reduces swelling and irritation in the lungs, which is typically the main factor when people experience breathing difficulties.

Using Sirdupla is a preventive measure and is not meant as a quick fix. If a sudden attack of breathlessness or wheeziness were to occur, then patients should use a fast-acting ‘reliever’ inhaler. Sirdupla serves as a way of reducing the risk of such attacks from occurring.

Can I use Sirdupla?

Sirdupla is designed to be used by adults aged 18 or above who require regular treatment for asthma or similar breathing-related issues. There are certain circumstances that may apply to you which could make Sirdupla unsuitable.

You should consult your doctor or pharmacist before using Sirdupla if you have medical conditions such as the following:

  • Heart disease (including a fast or irregular heartbeat)
  • High blood pressure
  • An overactive thyroid gland
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes mellitus (Sirdupla may increase your blood sugar)
  • Low potassium in your blood
  • You have or have previously had tuberculosis or other lung infections

You should also speak to your doctor or pharmacist about any other medicines you are currently using or have recently taken. Some medicines could interfere with the effects of Sirdupla or vice versa. In particular, it’s important to mention if you are currently or have recently used any of the following:

  • Beta-blockers (such as propranolol and atenolol)
  • Medicines which can increase heart rate (may be referred to as beta-agonists)
  • Corticosteroids (by mouth or by injection)
  • Medicines to treat infections (such as ketoconazole and erythromycin)
  • Medicines for HIV treatment (such as ritonavir)
  • Diuretics (also known as water tablets) which treat high blood pressure
  • Xanthine medicines (often used to treat asthma)
  • Other bronchodilators (such as salbutamol)

Sirdupla dosage instructions

With your prescription of Sirdupla, there should be an information leaflet with detailed instructions on how to operate and maintain your inhaler correctly. When prescribed, you should use Sirdupla every day until your doctor advises you to stop. Don’t stop using Sirdupla or alter the dose without consulting your doctor first.

This medication is available in two strengths. Whichever one you have been prescribed, the typical dosage is two puffs twice a day. You will likely start on the weaker strength version of this medication to begin with and then you may be prescribed the stronger one later on, depending on how you respond to initial treatment. Your doctor will want to regularly check your symptoms while you’re using Sirdupla to see if they are improving, staying the same or possibly getting worse.

Sirdupla side effects

Like with all medicines, it is possible to experience side effects while using Sirdupla, although not all users will experience any. The side effects that are most likely to be experienced include the following:

  • Headaches
  • An increased number of colds if a patient has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Thrush in the mouth and throat. Rinsing your mouth out and/or brushing your teeth after each dose of medicine could help reduce the risk of this issue.
  • Aching, swollen joints and muscle pain
  • Muscle cramps

Patients with COPD could also potentially face additional side effects such as pneumonia, bronchitis, inflammation of the sinuses, bruising and bone fractures.

Other side effects are possible but are also a rarity. Some of the rare side effects can be serious though, so you should speak to your doctor if you experience any that are particularly distressing or prolonged.

Get in touch with your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department if you experience the following:

  • Signs of an allergic reaction, including itchy skin or swelling around the face, lips, tongue or throat
  • An uneven, rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Breathing difficulties or wheeziness which get worse straight after inhaling Sirdupla. If this does happen, stop using this medication and use your fast-acting reliever inhaler to help with your breathing.

What if I forget to use Sirdupla?

If you forget to take a dose of this medication, then just take the next one at the usual time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten one ever.

What if I use too much Sirdupla?

If you accidentally inhale more of this medication then you were supposed to, speak to your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible. You may experience some symptoms if you overdose on this medication.

Possible symptoms include a faster than usual heartbeat, feelings of shakiness, dizziness, headache, muscle weakness and aching joints. If you take larger doses of this medicine for a long period of time, it may reduce the amount of steroid hormones produced by the adrenal gland.

Dosage Instructions
Inhale TWO puffs twice a day.
