FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs):

What is Symbicort?

Symbicort is used to treat lung conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It contains two active ingredients:

  • Budesonide: It is an inhaled corticosteroid that helps to reduce inflammation in the lungs.

  • Formoterol: It is a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) that relaxes the muscles around the airways. It helps to open the airways and makes it easier to breathe.

It is not known if Symbicort is safe or effective in children under 6 years of age with asthma.

Uses and Benefits of Symbicort

Symbicort is prescribed for the treatment of the following lungs problem:

  • Asthma: Symbicort prevents the symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and shortness of breath in patients above 6 years of age.

But the medicine is not for patients whose asthma can be controlled with a low to medium dose of inhaled corticosteroid.

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): COPD is a chronic condition that includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Symbicort helps to manage the symptoms of COPD and reduce the number of flare-ups.

Do not use Symbicort to treat sudden breathing problems and keep a rescue inhaler with you all the time.

Do not use the medicine more often than recommended. You should not change or stop taking the medicines without consulting your doctor.
