Know More About Symbicort

Uses of Symbicort 

Controlling and preventing the symptoms of Asthma is made possible with the use of Symbicort. Its main ingredients are budesonide and formoterol. Budesonide works by reducing inflammation in the body. Meanwhile, Formoterol functions by relaxing the muscles located in the airways, which in return improves breathing activities. The same medicine is utilized in controlling symptoms of COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. 

The combination of budesonide and formoterol is also available under the brand names DuoResp Spiromax and BiResp Spiromax.
