Just started taking symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) last week. Now I heave thrush. What's the best medicine. Thanks?
What are the symptoms of symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and other asthma inhaler medicines?
Inhalers: I assume you are asking about side effects. All combination inhalers, including advair, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and Dulera have a steroid component and a long acting bronchodilator. The steroids can cause oral thrush, so you need to drink water after use, the laba can cause you to be jittery, gives you palpitations insomnia. Most are generally well tolerated. Other inhalers have one of the components. ...Read more
Is symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) a good medicine to treat mid asthma with just deficit of 15% percent of breath? I'm fearing having colateral effects, I'm just 23.
Good med...: Because it is inhaled, very little of this med actually goes systemic so there are very few systemic side effects. Asthma has inflammation as well as bronchospasm so inhaled steroids are used to decrease the inflammation. Be sure to rinse and spit after each use of this inhaler to avoid oral thrush, a fungal mouth problem. ...Read more
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

Tendinitis: Budesonide as an inhaled steroid should have no detrimental effect on tendinitis. If your tendinitis is aggravated consider another reason.

Maintain not relief: Asthma is caused by inflammation. Which can trigger bronchial spasm. Together these can cause coughing, chest discomfort, shortness of breath or wheezing.
