Seroflo 500 Rotacap 30 is a respiratory medication primarily used to treat and prevent respiratory disorders like asthma attacks and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Seroflo 500 Rotacap is a combination of two medicines, Salmeterol 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 that cause inflammation of the airways.
