Washington, D.C. (AHN) - Asthma experts at the University of Iowa renew earlier warnings about medications that combine salmeterol with an inhaled corticosteroid.
The Iowa doctors say that in some patients, the combination of the medications in drugs such as Advair can make asthma more severe, or even fatal.
The experts describe two cases handled by Iowa doctors in a letter to the "New England Journal of Medicine."
