What are intal and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) turbuhaler for?

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.

See below. I'm not sure about the strength you listed. But the medications are an inhaled steroid to help with inflammation and a long acting beta agonist to cause bronchodilation.

What are some medication for asthma if symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) isn't working?

Several. Such as leukotriene modifier and Xolair. Occasionally theophylline may be helpful and alternate-day prednisone may need to be added. Anti-cholinergic has had a revival recently for bronchodilation. There are newer biologic products in the pipeline which may help.
