Advair Diskus is an oral inhaler that contains two types of asthma medication. One is fluticasone propionate a steroid that reduces inflammation in the lungs. The other salmeterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that opens up the airways. Together the two ingredients provide better control of asthma than either does individually. It will not relieve an asthma attack that has already started.
