From Zenhale leaflet:

ZENHALE is used twice a day to help people 12 years of age or older who need treatment for asthma and the doctor recommends a combination product. ZENHALE is not a rescue medication. Your doctor should prescribe a rescue medication for you. Use the rescue medication if you have sudden asthma symptoms.
ZENHALE is for patients with asthma that:
• was not well controlled with other asthma controlling medications or
•    is severe enough that the doctor recommends starting asthma treatment with two asthma medications
