Product Details

Description:

SYMBICORT is a medicated inhaler used to prevent bronchospasm in patients suffering from asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This medication works as an asthma controller, made from a combination of two drugs - budesonide and formoterol. Pulmicort (budesonide) is a steroid that improves asthma symptoms by decreasing irritation and inflammation, while foradil (formoterol) is a long-acting bronchodilator that relieves bronchoconstriction.

Ingredients:

Budesonide/Formoterol

Directions:

SYMBICORT should be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all patient instructions for safe use. Do not take in excess amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor.

Generally, doctors will prescribe to take 2 puffs of SYMBICORT, twice per day, approximately 12 hours apart. If asthma symptoms do not improve, consult your doctor as they will likely adjust or change your medication. Do not change your dosage or medication schedule without advice from your doctor. Take SYMBICORT daily for optimal results.

Cautions:

To make sure you can safely use SYMBICORT, tell your doctor if you have any of these conditions:

  • any allergies to budesonide or other chemicals contained in SYMBICORT
  • any heart disease or conditions
  • high blood pressure
  • seizure disorders
  • infections (including herpes infection of the eyes)
  • diabetes
  • tuberculosis
  • thyroid disorder or an electrolyte imbalance (such as low potassium levels in your blood)
SYMBICORT is not recommended for use in pregnant women and those breastfeeding because it can harm a baby. Consult your doctor for more information. Long-term use of these steroids may lead osteoporosis, especially if you smoke, lack physical activity, do not get enough vitamin D or calcium in your diet, or if you have a family history of osteoporosis.

SYMBICORT should not be used to treat an asthma attack that has already begun as it may increase the risk of asthma-related death. Talk with your doctor about your individual risks and benefits.

Works better than Foradil alone
I've noticed an improvement in my breathing with symbicort opposed to Foradil. The only downside is you must rinse your mouth out after every use. A small price to pay.

Symbicort Inhaler
The inhalers I purchase from Canada Pharmacy are working just fine. I was happy to have the option of purchasing them from Canada Pharmacy after my health insurace refused to cover them anymore. The options they offered were not acceptable.

Generic is fine
Canada Pharmacy sent me the generic for Symbicort Inhaler and I find it to be every bit as good and effective as the name brand. It costs much less than the name brand, yet works as well. Before I used the generic I did a little research and got the confidence to give it a try. I am so glad I did. Thank you Canada Pharmacy.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
