Symbicort combines an inhaled corticosteroid medicine, budesonide and a LABA medicine, formoterol. Inhaled corticosteroids help to decrease inflammation in the lungs, thus preventing asthma symptoms. LABA medicines are used in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma and help the muscles around the airways in your lungs stay relaxed to prevent asthma symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath. These symptoms can happen when the muscles around the airways tighten making it hard to breathe. Symbicort is a long-acting bronchodilator medication used to control symptoms of asthma, and prevent symptoms such as wheezing in adults and children ages 6 and older. It is not known if Symbicort is safe and effective in children less than 6 years of age with asthma. Symbicort is also used to treat COPD, a chronic lung disease that includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. Symbicort is used long term, to help improve lung function for better breathing in adults with COPD. Use Symbicort exactly as prescribed. Rinse your mouth with water and spit the water out after each dose (2 puffs) of Symbicort. Do not swallow the water. This will help to lessen the chance of getting a fungus infection (thrush) in the mouth and throat. Other COPD treatment are: Ventolin, Pulmicort, Atrovent
One-year safety and efficacy of budesonide/formoterol in a single inhaler (Symbicort Turbuhaler) for the treatment of asthma - June 2003, L Rosenhall, A Elvstrand, B Tilling, I Vinge, found that "Budesonide/formoterol in a single inhaler is as safe and effective in the long-term treatment of asthma as budesonide plus formoterol via separate inhalers."
