    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    Hi, Though Fluticasone-Salmeterol (Adviar) and Budesonide-Formoterol are meant to treat asthma but both are different drugs. For Some patients Advair will give allergic effect and for some patients Budesonide-Formoterol will give allergic effect So your physician will prescribe either Advair or Budesonide-Formoterol based on your health conditions.
