Yes, if no thrush: Rinsing with water after using symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is sufficient for removing the leftover medication from the mouth after dosing, so that one does not swallow it.

Anyways, no harm swallowing water as long as it didn't *begin* in the lungs ...Read more

Managed BP with medication. Alternate Fasting daily. Exercise regularly:HIIT. How risky/difficult to water fast for 2/3 days? Do I need medical help?

You need nutrient calories and your brain needs glucose! A healthy 12 hour fast...stop eating at 8pm and breakfast at 8am! ...Read more
