What is Symbicort Turbuhaler?

Symbicort is a combination inhaler that combines the medications budesonide and formoterol in order to control and prevent asthma symptoms including shortness of breath and wheezing. Budesonide is a corticosteroid that reduces the swelling and irritation of the airways. Formoterol is a long-acting beta-agonist that works by opening the airways in the lungs in order to make breathing easier.
Symbicort Turbuhaler is an inhalation device with a different delivery system than a Symbicort inhaler.
Symbicort is not a rescue medication and should not be used to treat asthma or bronchospasm attack.
