Serevent (salmeterol), is now approved for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

    The long-acting beta-agonist, Serevent (salmeterol), is now approved for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It used to be approved just for asthma.

    Serevent will be used as an alternative to Atrovent (ipratropium)...some patients will use them together.

    One advantage is that Serevent is dosed BID...instead of TID to QID like Atrovent.
