Depends on conditio: Albuterol is a bronchdilater and Budesonide is an inhaled steroid(anti inflammatory) prescribed in children and adults for bronchial asthma. Depending on the severity of asthma it may have to be used often if needed and prescribed under medical supervision and it is safe.

Is it safe to use Albuterol and Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) together? My Wife was at her Dr yesterday for wheezing caused by allergies and started the 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

After taking Pulmicort flexhaler I start wheezing. I just started this medicine and I am not sure if it works well. I am still short of breath.
I just noticed I've been using Pulmicort asthma medicine 3 times today instead of 2. What should I do now?
Decrease to 2: Pulmicort is an inhaled corticosteroid that is used to control underlying airway inflammation in patients with asthma. The typical use is twice daily. If your symptoms are under good control and you've been using it 3 times a day, you can decrease to 2 times a day. Of course, you should check with the physician that originally prescribed it to you. ...Read more

What can I use besides pulmicort and asthavent pumps to get rid of my phlegmy cough, runny nose and weezy chest? Cough medicines are doing nothing
Depends: If you have asthma, daily use of Pulmicort may help but even then takes about 2 -3 wks to find out. Asthavent would be for as needed use. If you have runny nose, you will need a nasal steroid. We need to rule out other causes of cough as well including sinusitis. Perhaps it is time for you to consult an allergist. ...Read more
Mild persistent: If a person with asthma uses their albuterol to treat symptoms more than twice per week or has night-time asthma more than twice per month, then their asthma is poorly controlled and they need a controller medication. Albuterol is a "rescue" medication and only temporarily reverses symptoms without treating the underlying problem. Pulmicort is a controller medication. ...Read more
Depends: In general inhaled steroids are started when a child is experiencing frequent night cough (> 2/mo), frequent asthma symptoms/inhaler use (>2/wk), limited activities, frequent severe attacks (<6wks apart). You can also use steroid inhalers instead of Pulmicort or use singulair (montelukast) pills/granules instead of a steroid. The age of the child also plays a role. It's different for a 2mo old vs 14 yr old. ...Read more
