How Should It Be Stored?

Symbicort should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Once a Symbicort inhaler is removed from its packaging, it must be discarded after three months, even if it is not empty.
Keep Symbicort and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Symbicort?

If you do not take your dose as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.


The Symbicort inhaler is available in two strengths:
