In a St. Joseph Health Scene Report, if you suffer from asthma, federal health officials are recommending you stay away from the drug known as Serevent. Researchers say the drug produces a significantly higher rate of complications when compared to older treatments. There is a much more promising report from the FDA about the popular asthma drug, Advair. The drug does not appear to produce an increased risk of serious respiratory complications seen with similar new medicines.
