Serevent Inhaler (Salmeterol)

Serevent (Salmeterol) is employed as a long-term (maintenance) medication to stop or lessen wheezing and breathing difficulties brought on by asthma or persistent lung conditions (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema).

It should only be used long-term if your existing asthma drugs are unable to control your symptoms (such as inhaled corticosteroids). To help you breathe more easily, this drug relaxes the muscles that surround your airways. Additionally, it prevents asthma brought on by physical activity (bronchospasm).

  • If your current asthma medications are unable to control your symptoms, only utilise it long-term (such as inhaled corticosteroids). Asthma cannot be treated with Serevent alone.

  • An inhaler for immediate relief should always be carried with you. It is advised that young children and adolescents who must take Serevent to treat their asthma use a Serevent with fluticasone combination medication.

So far I have been very pleased with my…

So far I have been very pleased with my experience of making an order with LifeRx. From the time I set up my account to the time I had my order in hand was 16 days, with frequent email updates during the time period (by the way, I live in Florida and my order was 180 count of 5mg Eliquis, not generic). Hopefully my future involvement with LifeRx will continue to be as pleasant as my experience so far.

Talk About Saving Money...

I have been using another Canadian Pharmacy for years. Slowly but surely they have jacked their prices up. LifeRx saved me almost 50% over the other store. They brought a three month, US $1500 Eliquis price down to $76. Talk about money in the bank.

1st Rx order went MOSTLY well

All went well for the initial order and I received the Rx timely. I was quite disappointed that I was not informed as to the ship status at any time after placing the order. So I had no idea if I would receive it prior to running out of my current Rx.

Also, my new Rx sent to LifeRx Pharmacy had 3 refills listed on the Rx but upon receiving the order, the label said there were 0 refills available. Do not understand that?

Tamsulosin .2mg (low dose)

I ordered Tamsulosin .2mg (low dose). This is not distributed directly in the US, all you can buy here is the .4mg which produced unacceptable side effects for me. LifeRX had the best price and the delivery time was only two weeks which is excellent. The ordering and payment process was easy. LifeRX Pharmacy is highly recommended for price and performance.

Mixup with delivery address

It was easy to talk to customer service but I had difficulty understanding my agent. She was helpful and we did solve the issue. I did receive my medication. My next order will go better, I am sure of that.
