Both Dulera and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) have the same long acting bronchodilator, they differ in the steroid content. Dulera contains mometasone. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) contains budesonide. Both agents are used to treat moderate persistent asthma.

The steroids differ. The bronchodilator is the same. In my experience, the steroid in symbicort works much better.
