Seretide inhaler is not usually recommended for babies of 1 year as it has not been approved for use in this age group. Seretide is a combination of a cortisione for inhalation called Flixotide together with a long acting bronchodilator called Serevent.It is due to there being insufficient information on the safety of this bronchodilator component of Seretide in young infants that Seretide is not recommended at this stage.
