I'm a sicu student. I'm quit confused with berodual and seretide. They are both to treat asthma. What's the main difference between those two drugs? Why seretide can be prn and berodual can not? Anyone can help? Thanks so much.

Seretide is NOT for PRN usage. It is equivalent to advair in the USA. (sounds like you aren't in the USA) BeroDual is a bronchodilator from my understanding of the website. (not a med given in the USA) Equivilant to the combivent in the USA.
Seretide has a steroid in it along with a long acting bronchodilator. Berodual is a short acting bronchodilator which can be used as needed.
