Found "reduced adrenal function" as a side effect of advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone).Is it same as adrenal fatigue;does it mean acceptance of "adrenal fatigue" concept?

Corticosteroids. The adrenal glands produce corticosteroids, as commanded by the pituitary gland. When taking a corticosteroid med, the pituitary detects the high level & reduces the signal to the adrenals. After taking corticosteroids long enough, it takes time to ramp up corticosteroid production again, leading to adrenal insufficiency if the corticosteroid med is suddenly stopped. This is not "adrenal fatigue."

Mental change? Just about anything from having odd thoughts to depression to nightmares to drowsiness, etc. Although many of these effects are listed separately. If you really can't define a "mental change" it is probably not related to the medication.

What are the side effects of advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone) and is it safe to use for 6 months or more?

Safe to use. Advair contains fluticasone, a steroid, and salmeterol, a long acting bronchodialtor. Any inhaled steroid can cause thrush so be sure to rinse your mouth well after use. I've also seen hoarseness with advair, especially if one does not inhale forcefully. Salmeterol can cause leg cramps at night. Regular use of advair is much safer than the alternative of episodic use of oral steroids.

Do you know if advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone) is still effective after 30 days?

Look at expiration. In general all dry powder inhalers expire a certain number of days after the foil pouch is open. Check with your pharmacist or look at the package information included in your prescription.

About asthma advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone) medicine? Can you take it all year long without complications?

Brush your teeth. Yes, complication rates are near zero if you rinse out your mouth and brush your teeth after using it.
Yes. Advair has a long-acting beta-agonist and a steroid inhaler in one. It can be used for long-term asthma control. After each use, rinse your mouth and spit it out to avoid thrush, a fungal infection of the mouth and a common side-effect. You should also have a short -acting beta-agonist inhaler for breakthrough symptoms as advair should not be used for acute symptoms.
