Symbicort for Asthma

Symbicort® (budesonide and formoterol) is a prescription COPD and asthma medication. Healthcare providers do not recommend Symbicort as a "rescue medication" for COPD or asthma attacks; this drug is used on a daily basis to help prevent attacks from occurring, not to treat them once they occur.
 
The medication contains a beta agonist and an inhaled steroid, drugs that decrease inflammation and open up the airways. Symbicort comes in a metered-dose inhaler that is typically used twice a day, with 12 hours between doses.
 
Before your healthcare provider prescribes Symbicort for asthma or COPD, make sure he or she is aware if you have osteoporosis, high blood pressure, or diabetes. You should also tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking to help prevent drug interactions.
