How does Pulmicort work?
When Pulmicort is inhaled, it is absorbed by the cells of the lungs. The medicine then reacts with the cells of the lungs and prevents inflammation causing chemicals. Asthma triggers which are the result of the obstruction of your air passages (caused by inflammation and surplus production of mucus) can be controlled by using this medicine which eases the air passage providing comfort and relief. The lungs will have proper air circulation, preventing choking and breathing difficulties.
How do I take pulmicort?
Pulmicort is taken through a nebulizer or inhaled as a dry powder. This steroid needs to be taken only under the supervision and prescription of a doctor and the dosage needs to be continued and should not be stopped suddenly. Pulmicort is used to control and prevent asthma triggers and is in no way a treatment for the actual asthma attack. Prior to taking this medication, make sure that you tell your doctor if you have any other medical condition.
Are there any side effects?
Usually Pulmicort like any other inhaled steroid possesses good levels of tolerance, but there are certain side effects associated with it. Some of the common side effects which can be experienced while using this medicine are:
- Abdomen pain
- Chest pain
If you experience any of the side effects mentioned above, contact your doctor immediately. Increased doses and prolonged usage of any steroid may lead to cases of osteoporosis; hence care should be taken while using the medicine to ensure good health and effective treatment.
