What is Symbicort Turbuhaler used for?

Symbicort Turbuhaler, with the generic name budesonide and formoterol fumarate dihydrate, is an oral inhalation prescribed to treat asthma. It is being prescribed as a maintenance treatment for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) with chronic bronchitis and emphysema. This is classified as a corticosteroid and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist.

This is available in Symbicort Turbuhaler 160/ 4.5 mcg, 100/6 mcg, 200/6 mcg, and 400/12 mcg dry powder inhalers.

How does Symbicort Turbuhaler work?

This inhalation is a combination of an inhaled corticosteroid and a beta2 agonist. Budesonide is a potent steroid that prevents and decreases swelling in the airway, including the lungs. Formoterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes smooth muscles and opens up the airways.
