Symbicort

(10 customer reviews)

Symbicort is medication used to control asthma in patients who are 12 years and older. Asthma is normally associated with symptoms such as shortness of breath and wheezing and Symbicort helps to prevent these symptoms. In order to be effective, this medicine must be used on a regular basis. Further, this is not a type of medication that provides quick relief. Therefore, in case of an asthma attack, use quick relief medication instead.
 
Symbicort contains 2 key ingredients; budesonide and formoterol. Budesonide or Pulmicort is an ingredient that is an anti inflammatory corticosteroid. It basically helps to reduce irritation and swelling in the airways. Formoterol, on the other hand, is a fast acting and long lasting drug responsible for the dilation of the respiratory tract.

How does Symbicort work?

Symbicort is formulated by combining two (2) active ingredients called budesonide and formoterol. Budesonide works by preventing and reducing the inflammation of the respiratory tract. It is commonly referred to as a corticosteroid or steroid drug. However, it is different from the infamous anabolic steroid. Corticosteroids work as anti-inflammatory agents.
Budesonide is responsible for inhibiting the release of certain chemicals (plays a major role in the production of allergic and immune reactions that result in inflammation) from the cells. In other words, inhibiting the release of these chemicals reduces the inflammation of the airways.

Formoterol, on the other hand, works as a long acting beta 2 agonist. It works by reacting to the receptors of the lungs (beta 2 receptors). Through this, Formoterol helps in relaxing the airways muscles, which opens the airways.

How do I take Symbicort?

Before using the medication, shake the inhaler properly for five (5) seconds. Inhale this medication orally as prescribed by the doctor. Symbicort should be taken two (2) times a day (morning and evening), where there is a gap of 12 hours).
In order to prevent yeast infections and irritation in the mouth and throat, patients must gargle and rinse their mouth after using Symbicort. You must never swallow the rinse water.

The dosage of Symbicort usually starts low. Afterwards, depending on the patient’s response to the treatment, the dosage is adjusted. Note that Symbicort is only a preventive drug against asthma attacks. It is not effective in stopping an actual asthma attack. Hence, it is important to take this medication regularly and accordingly.

Are there side effects?

Symbicort may cause side effects such as:

  • Trembling
  • Increased heart beat
  • Oral thrush
  • Insomnia
  • Respiratory spasms
  • Palpitations
  • Rashes and itchiness

Stop taking the medicine and contact your doctor as soon as you start experiencing any of the above mentioned side effects.

    I was diagnosed with allergy related asthma when I was four years old. I’ve been on several maintenance medicine, but never thought they did much. I was hospitalized when I was 15 with asthmatic bronchitis and my doctor decided to put my on Symbicort which was finally allowed in the US at the time. Since then my asthma has turned around 180 and I haven’t had any major issues. I’ve taken two puffs twice a day for the past 7 years and it’s truly a lifesaver. It even opens my airway within 5 minutes of taking it.

    The dosage of 160/4.5 makes me very, very nervous.

    I have been on Symbicort inhaler for a couple of years for Asthma which I seem to have picked up since our last move to Vernon BC. and during this time have completely lost my taste buds. I am a retired professional chef and tasting food is important to me. I can hardly taste any salt seasonings etc . I can not smell things like peppermint, curry paprika etc. Right now I am just cooking from experience and I do not like it one bit.

    I’m kinda surprised at some of the negative reviews too. I’ve had asthma all my life and this miracle drug put asthma in its place (not active). I get asthma from allergies and cardio exercises. Was given a sample by a doctor I used to work for because I kept using my ProAir every 30min throughout the day. After that sample of Symbicort, my life changed forever. I don’t know what it is about this drug, but it only takes 2 puffs and BAM, my asthma isn’t a problem until next year. Can’t live without it. Its amazing stuff right here. I live by this drug (unfortunately) but fortunate that it gives me freedom from asthma for almost a full year. Problem free.

    Mine is a seasonal asthma and until Symbicort I ended up in the ER several times a year (spring, summer, fall). That’s when I take 2 puffs X 2 times a day and have yet to have an attack. Winter, only 1 puff every other day. Sure, I have occasional wheezing, but that’s why I have Ventolin. Looking back (10 plus years), I have to tell you – I’m really happy not to have to use Prednisone, possibly ever again.

    Symbicort worked for about a year. Then one day as I got to work I could not see very well from my left eye. I went to the eye doctor only to be told that my retina had fluid in it. After answering all the questions the conclusion was that the steroids in the medication was affecting my vision. Moreover, my wrist joint and back started to hurt often. My family physician recommended other drugs but I decided to stop all my medications an go on a whole food diet. I must say it has been six weeks and I don’t need the inhaler, my joint pains are gone and my vision is getting back to normal. It was a blessing to have the drug but I felt that I made a pact with the devil since it almost destroy the rest of my body.

    before starting symbicort my lung function was 43%, 2 weeks into using symbicort my lung function went up to 74%, a true blessing. The only side affect I had was thrush. I found that eating keifers yogurt with probiotics did the trick, my throat is fine. Symbicort is amazing

    I used to take Advair but it dried out my nose severely and then my doctor gave me Symbicort and been using it for 5 years now without any side effects. It has been great, hardly ever have to use my Ventolin.

    Dr prescribed me this after advair stopped being covered by my insurance . I’ve been using it for about 2-3 years now. For me the symbicort is more effective than any other control medicine I’ve used. I hardly ever have to use my rescue inhaler and I used to use my ventolin all the time . Now my ventolin actually expires before I can use it . Symbicort is amazing !! Only con is if you stop using it for a few days you really start to feel it – chest tightness, shortness of breath, etc . So it’s really important to keep up with your refills on this medication.

    I find Symbicort quite effective for keeping away flare-ups when I use it consistently. I used to only take it once my symptoms were already bad and it did nothing to help me then, but now in my teens I’ve remembered to take it every day for the last year or two. 1 puff in the morning and 1 in the evening. When I notice yellow symptoms I increased to 2 morning/2 evening and then the flare-up lasts about a week instead of 3 or 4. Exercise and cold are my major triggers. I don’t really notice any side effects, but it seems like they’re pretty common. That plus the cost makes me interested in something different.
