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.
Yes. But this comes with some factors in play. Are you a diabetic? Are you allergic to any of the components? Benefits are that if you keep the inflammation down in your chest, you prevent some of the permanent damage that is done. This can result in a much better and longer life for you.

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...
