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
