Additional Information

Budesonide is a steroid that reduces inflammation in the lungs, and formoterol is a long-acting bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles around the airways. Symbicort Turbuhalers are available in different sizes and strengths, so it is important to choose the right one for your needs. If you have never used a Symbicort Turbuhaler before, or if you are unsure which one is right for you, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

What is the difference between Symbicort and Salamol?

Symbicort and Salamol are both inhalers that are used to relieve asthma symptoms. They both contain active ingredients that reduce inflammation in the lungs and relax the muscles around the airways. However, Symbicort also contains a long-acting bronchodilator (formoterol) that can provide quick relief from asthma symptoms. Because of this, Symbicort is often used as a "rescue" inhaler for people with severe asthma attacks. Salamol does not contain a bronchodilator and is typically used as a "maintenance" inhaler to prevent asthma symptoms from occurring.

How do I use a Symbicort Turbuhaler?

When using a Symbicort Turbuhaler, it is important to follow the instructions on the packaging carefully. To use a Symbicort Turbuhaler, remove the cap and hold the inhaler upright. Prime the inhaler by turning the dial to the "Start" position and then release two puffs of medication into the air, away from your face. Inhale deeply and evenly, and hold your breath for 10 seconds before exhaling. If you are using more than one puff of medication, wait at least 30 seconds between puffs.

What are the side effects of Symbicort?

Common side effects of Symbicort include headache, sore throat, cough, and upper respiratory tract infections. Some people may also experience anxiety, shaking, or nervousness. If you experience any of these side effects, speak to your doctor.

Can I take Symbicort while breastfeeding?

Symbicort is not recommended for use during pregnancy unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, speak to your doctor before using Symbicort. Symbicort is also not recommended for use while breastfeeding. If you are breastfeeding, speak to your doctor before using Symbicort.
