Doctor insights on:
Formoterol And Mometasone
Yes: A scenario where one may be needing to take Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) and ventolin around the same time would be during some type of asthma/copd exacerbation. Remember though, Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) has a long acting form of albuterol (the active ingredient in ventolin). So normally, one would not need to take them both at the same time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can dulera and Advair be used together for emphysema or dulera and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol)?
Asthma controllers: Both are used as medications that control the underlying inflammation of asthma. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) also contains a long-acting bronchodilator that provides immediate relief of asthma symptoms. Cromolyn does not do this. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is much more effective. Cromolyn is a bit safer. The difference is moot. Cromolyn (intal) is no longer available on the american market. ...Read more
Not really.: I'll presume you're talking about acute bronchitis, which is a very different entity from chronic bronchitis, which is a form of chronic lung disease. For acute form, an inhaler combination of steroid and bronchodilator generally has no role. In copd, chronic bronchitis or emphysema, it may be useful. ...Read more
Both-read why: Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is a combination inhaler containing an steroid (for inflammation) and long acting bronchodilator. Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is used every day to control and prevent asthma. In contrast, albuterol is for quick relief and only used as needed. This is a good combination for patients with moderate to severe persistent asthma. An allergist can assist in further explanation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Corticosteroid asthma medicine symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) or advair diskus; which is better?
Both are good: It's a matter of personal response to the medications. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is an aerosol and the coordination required to inhale it is a little harder than the diskus. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) contains formoterol as the long-acting bronchodilator, and that works faster than the salmeterol in advair. Both come in different strengths as well. Try both and consider what each costs on your plan and the side effects you have. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: It is not unusual to prescribe them together especially when there is a flare up. ...Read more
Allergy/Asthma: First off, follow the doctor recs. If you are worried, you should ask the allergist.. But, yes, that is a safe regimen. It is actually a good therapy since the two nose sprays work very well together, the zyrtec is a good adjunct and Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is one of the best asthma medications. ...Read more
Does asthma inhaler symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and haldol, olanzapine interact with each other?
Pharmacist can check: I don't believe the combined use of those 3 medications are contraindicated. I would discuss it with either the prescribing physician and/or pharmacist. ...Read more
Combo vs single med.: Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is a combo inhaler made up of two medicines: Budesonide (steroid) and formoterol (long acting beta-agnoist). Oxis is branded medicine formoterol by itself. So, basically oxis + Budesonide = advair. Oxis is rarely used by itself these days. If you have asthma or COPD and having trouble, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Asthma pregnancy: Absolutely yes. It's very important that asthma be treated adequately during pregnancy. If you don't get adequate oxygen in your lungs, the baby won't get adequate oxygen through the placenta. Talk to your OB doctor about the importance of treating asthma during pregnancy. They will reassure you to make sure you're taking your medications to prevent a severe asthma flare that may harm the baby. ...Read more
