SYMBICORT TURBUHALER (BUDESONIDE/FORMOTEROL FUMARATE DIHYDRATE)

Symbicort Turbuhaler Description

Symbicort Turbuhaler is prescribed as a preventive medication to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (chronic bronchitis and emphysema). The two active ingredients in Symbicort Turbuhaler are Budesonide and Formoterol Fumarate Dihydrate. When inhaled as directed, Budesonide is taken in and absorbed into the cells of your lungs and airways. This corticosteroid then prevents the release of certain chemicals in your body, usually as an immune response to a threat or injury that causes inflammation. This action will reduce swelling and inflammation so your airways and lungs are able to function better.

Formoterol Fumarate Dihydrate is a long-acting beta 2 agonist that is also taken into your lungs and airways and acts on the beta 2 receptors. The stimulation of these receptors relaxes the muscles that surround your airways so your breathing is improved. Your wheezing and coughing are eased and you can carry on with your daily schedule without being out of breath.

You will need a prescription from your doctor to purchase Symbicort Turbuhaler, which is also available as the generic Budesonide/Formoterol Fumarate Dihydrate. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Symbicort Turbuhaler

The majority of people with asthma also have allergies. Air pollution, smoke, dust mites, obesity, stress, and genetics can be to blame for your asthma attacks when you are exposed to any triggers that put your immune system into alert mode. Inflammatory chemicals are produced and sent to the source of your allergic reaction, which is your lungs. Your breathing becomes difficult as your airways swell with inflammation.

COPD is the collective name for two other breathing disorders, chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Chronic bronchitis eventually causes scarring of the lining of your bronchial tubes from the inflammation and decreases the air flow to and from your lungs. This leads to a thick mucus build-up that has you coughing most days. Emphysema causes the walls of the air sacs in your lungs to become thin and frail and eventually irreversibly damaged. Smoking is the main culprit of COPD and although Symbicort Turbuhaler can reduce your symptoms, it is not a cure for asthma or COPD.

Before You Use Symbicort Turbuhaler

Discuss other current medical conditions or allergies you have and list all Rx drugs and over the counter medicines you are taking, including homeopathic preparations and vitamin or dietary supplements. Your doctor can then determine if Symbicort Turbuhaler is safe for you to use. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant or are breast-feeding as it is not fully known if Symbicort Turbuhaler may cause harm to your unborn or nursing baby.

Is There a Way to Buy Symbicort Turbuhaler Cheap?

The price of Symbicort Turbuhaler varies according to whether you purchase brand name or generic drugs, and where you choose to have your prescription filled. One of the most cost effective ways to purchase Symbicort Turbuhaler is to buy generic Budesonide/Formoterol Fumarate Dihydrate online at NorthWestPharmacy.com. Brand name and generic Symbicort Turbuhaler differ only in their non-medicinal formulations; the active medicinal ingredients are the same.

Warnings for Symbicort Turbuhaler

You should always rinse your mouth out after inhaling from the Symbicort Turbuhaler to prevent a fungal infection from developing in your mouth or throat. Symbicort Turbuhaler is not effective for stopping an asthma attack or for quickly reducing symptoms of COPD. Your doctor should prescribe a fast-acting bronchodilator and it should be kept close-by at all times.

Possible Side Effects of Symbicort Turbuhaler
