Budesonide and formoterol helps to prevent asthma symptoms and breathing problems.
Inhale budesonide and formoterol as directed by your healthcare professional.
Rinse your mouth after use.
Budesonide and formoterol works best when used every day.
If you need quick relief from asthma symptoms or breathing problems, use your ‘reliever’ medicine (e.g. salbutamol, terbutaline, ipratropium).
If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and inhale your next dose at the usual time. Otherwise, inhale the missed dose as soon as you remember. Do not inhale two doses at the same time.
