This is Dr. David

fluticasone is an inhaled steroid that should be dosed once a day.

I would not give another dose of Seretide Accuhaler which contains Fluticasone again on the same day.

if he has asthma issues, he may benefit from another rescue inhaler like albuterol inhaled or or Xolpenex inhaler or nebulizer
