While the use of inhaled LABAs are still recommended in asthma guidelines for the resulting improved symptom control, [12] further concerns have been raised. A large meta-analysis of pooled results from 19 trials with 33,826 participants, suggests that salmeterol may increase the small risks of asthma-related deaths, and this additional risk is not reduced with the additional use of inhaled steroids (., as with the combination product fluticasone/salmeterol ). [13] This seems to occur because although LABAs relieve asthma symptoms, they also promote bronchial inflammation and sensitivity without warning. [14]

Fluticasone; vilanterol inhalation is not indicated for use in children. The safety and efficacy of the combination have not been established in infants, neonates, children, and adolescents. Available data from controlled clinical trials suggest that long-acting beta-agonists increase the risk of asthma-related hospitalization in pediatric and adolescent patients. Among subjects aged 12 to 17 years, asthma-related hospitalizations occurred in 4 subjects (%) treated with Breo Ellipta 100/25 (n = 151) compared with 0 subjects treated with fluticasone furoate 100 mcg (n = 130). There were no asthma-related deaths or asthma-related intubations observed in this trial. Growth inhibition has been observed in some children following therapy with high-dose fluticasone propionate inhalations (., Flovent). Children receiving fluticasone inhalations should be monitored closely for growth inhibition; the effect of fluticasone on final adult height is not known.

Whilst the use of inhaled steroids and long acting beta-adrenoceptor agonists (LABA) are recommended in asthma guidelines for the resulting improved symptom control, [1] concerns have been raised that salmeterol may increase the small risks of asthma deaths and this additional risk is not reduced with the additional use of inhaled steroids. [2] Other side effects from this drug combination may include increased blood pressure, change in heart rate, an irregular heartbeat, increased risk of osteoporosis, cataracts, and glaucoma. [3]

Talk to your doctor about how you should take your other oral or inhaled medications for asthma during your treatment with salmeterol and fluticasone inhalation. If you were using a short-acting beta agonist inhaler such as albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin) on a regular basis, your doctor will probably tell you to stop using it regularly but to continue to use it to treat sudden attacks of asthma symptoms. Follow these directions carefully. Do not change the way you use any of your medications or stop taking any of your medications without talking to your doctor.

Although I am not a medical doctor (MD), I am a former RN/registered nurse, with many years of experience dealing holistically with various ailments, including conquering my husband's and my previous VCD attacks (and helping many, many others to conquer their VCD). The advice I can give you, is not medical advice--it is practical advice. The practical advice can help you to make a plan, about what you can try doing (and not doing), and also includes seeing various VCD-knowledgable specialist doctors, to be safe, and to get fully and accurately diagnosed, and correctly treated for your specific situation.
