I have been diagnosed with asthma and told to take formoterol fumarate and mometasone furoate inhaler for lifelong. Is this the right treatment?

Is treating chronic cough with a combination of Budesonide+Formoterol Fumarate considered aggressive treaetment? Does benefit outweighs the risks?
Depends on cause.: Technically, that would depend on the cause of your cough, and as such the treatment you mention wouldn't be aggressive as much as it would be misdirected. This would be fine for asthma or COPD, perhaps, but not for allergies or reflux, which can also cause a chronic cough. ...Read more
Is combivair 200 (budesonide + formoterol fumarate) only for Asthma or has other uses such as chronic cough control as well?

I am advised to take 2-3 dosages of combihale fb 200 inhaler (budesonide-200mcg and formoterol-6mcg) 2 puffs each day. Is it safe for long term?

It seems to be somewhat attenuated when taken along with a steroid formulation such as Budesonide as in your case. Most people do fine using this long term, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Heared formoterol increases riskof death.My rota caps contains it 6mcg along with fluticasone.I use 2 rotacaps daily to treat asthma.Should I avoid it?
Combo vs single med.: Symbicort 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
