Not recommended: Not recommended Because BREO and Symbicort are just different versions of the same combinations of two medications . A corticosteroid ( Cortizone type medication )and a long acting beta agonist. Taking both at the same time will double Dose of both these medications. Follow your doctor’s instructions in general Recommendations take one of these inhalers not both to avoid talking an excess of both

YES: If it was prescribed that way and it is needed. Some of the meds you mentioned are to be taken daily , some are as needed.
