In brief: Seretide vs Advair

Seretide is the name for advair outside the us.
It also contains fluticasone and salmeterol. Hopefully you have a reputable supplier and the inhalers you are receiving are genuine. I am always cautious about foreign pharmacies. You should see your physician again. Gsk is making advair available for free at participating pharmacies by e-voucher if your insurance has stopped covering it.
