Advair twice a day: You are being treated by your doctor with advair250/50 which is a combination inhaled medicine containing inhaled steroid and long acting bronchodilator and is considered as controller medicine by inhalation and you may be prescribed reliever inhaler like albuterol for acute episodes in between it is ok to use albuterol inhaler for acute episodes with advair twice a day. Need change in BP meds.
