Can dulera (formoterol and mometasone) and ventolin be taken togeter?

Can dulera (formoterol and mometasone) and ventolin be taken togeter?

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 more

What are intal and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) turbuhaler for?

What are intal and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) turbuhaler for?

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

Does symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) help with bronchitis?

Does symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) help with bronchitis?

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

Which works better: dulera (formoterol and mometasone) or albuterol?

Which works better: dulera (formoterol and mometasone) or albuterol?

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 more

Corticosteroid asthma medicine symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) or advair diskus; which is better?

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 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.

Main difference between symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and oxis formoterol?

Main difference between symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and oxis formoterol?

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

Can i take symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) inhaler while pregnant?

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
