What is Generic Symbicort Inhaler and what is it used for?
Symbicort is an inhaler used for the prevention of asthma symptoms. It must be used daily to be effective, even after symptoms have gone away. If you have ever had an asthma attack, you should use another inhaler to relieve your symptoms because Symbicort is a long-acting asthma medication and does not provide immediate relief.
What are the advantages of this treatment over the alternatives to Symbicort?
Symbicort uses the two active ingredients budesonide and formoterol fumarate dihydrate in an inhaler. Budesonide is a corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory properties that prevents the swelling of the lungs that causes an attack. Formoterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles of the airways and counteracts the contractions that can cause breathing difficulties.
A prophylactic inhaler can be extremely helpful for those who suffer from regular asthma attacks. If you want to buy Symbicort, you will get a treatment containing two active ingredients that work together to minimize lung inflammation and clear the airways. Patients who use this treatment regularly are less likely to suffer from attacks during exercise or stress.
How does Symbicort work?
The two active ingredients in Symbicort are inhaled to reduce airway inflammation and clear mucus that has formed. Asthma is usually caused by irritation that leads to inflammation of the airways. Budesonide prevents inflammation and reduces the need to use an inhaler to relieve symptoms.
Formoterol prevents the muscles in the lungs from contracting when a substance that can trigger asthma is inhaled. This relieves difficulty breathing and coughing, while keeping the airways open.
The medication often takes effect in 3 to 4 minutes, although this may vary slightly from person to person. When Symbicort is used regularly twice a day, it helps improve lung function significantly.
What you should know before using Generic Symbicort Inhaler
This asthma prophylaxis will work well for you, provided you are not hypersensitive to any of the active ingredients.
It is important to properly assess your suitability for this asthma treatment. Talk to your pharmacist before using Symbicort if you have:
- Infection of the lungs or airways
- High blood pressure
- Heart problems, such as irregular heartbeat, fast heartbeat, narrowed arteries or heart failure
- Thyroid or adrenal gland problems
- Low potassium levels in the blood
- Severe liver or kidney problems
Symbicort may interact with certain medications. So you should tell your doctor about the medications and supplements you are taking, especially if you are using any of the following:
- Potent cytochrome inhibitors
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants
How do I use the Symbicort inhaler?
Symbicort is the most common type of inhaler for people with asthma, who have difficulty creating pressure in the bottle when inhaling. The turbulator allows you to release the medication first by turning the red knob back and forth. This allows you to inhale through the mouthpiece and receive the dose without pressing on the inhaler.
To prepare your inhaler, take it out of the package and write the current date on it. Before you use your inhaler for the first time, you must prepare it. You should also prepare your inhaler if you have lost it or if you have not used it for more than 7 days. To do this, do the following:
- Hold the inhaler upright with the red head down
- Shake it well for 3 to 6 seconds
- Remove the nozzle by pressing gently on both sides and then pull it out
- Hold the inhaler facing you and turn the red handle until you hear a click
- Breathe in through your mouth as deeply and forcefully as possible
- Shake the inhaler again for 3 to 6 seconds and repeat the spray attempt
- After using your inhaler, you should replace the cap on the mouthpiece
- Rinse your mouth with water and spit out the water
Symbicort should only be used in patients whose asthma cannot be controlled with asthma medications alone.
It is important that you take Symbicort as supportive therapy. Even if you find that your breathing improves over time, you should continue to take the medication.
When using Symbicort, you may find that you need to use your inhaler to relieve the symptoms of choking pain less often than before. However, it should be noted that Symbicort is not a symptom-relieving inhaler and cannot be used as a substitute for treating symptoms that suddenly get worse.
If your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse, you should see your doctor immediately.
How do I read the activation counter on my turbohaler?
You will find the counter on your inhaler at the top of the metal container. The arrow shows the number of breaths or puffs remaining. When you first prepare your inhaler, the counter will read 60 or 120, depending on the size you are using. Each time you use the inhaler, the arrow on the counter moves down.
When the arrow gets close to 20, you will see that it is in the yellow zone, which means it is time to refill. Dispose of the inhaler when the arrow points to the red zone and the number 0, or 3 months after you remove it from the package, whichever comes first. Your inhaler may not be empty and still work, but you will not receive the correct amount of medicine if you continue to use it.
