Symbicort ingredients

Common Questions and Answers about Symbicort ingredients


There are long acting broncho dilaters like serevent (and a few others as found in Advair, Symbicort and Dulera) and short acting ones like albuterol. There are about three different forms of albuterol - pributerol (Maxair), albuterol (ProAir and Proventil), and levalbuterol (Xopenex). Other broncho diliaters include caffeine, theophyline, anticholinergics like atrovent and spireva. Corticosteroids check the ingredients of Advair, Symbicort and Dulera.
When I was pregnant, my asthma attacks suddenly kicked up in winter - cold dry air is always bad for me but the pregnancy was making it worse. I started to take Symbicort, it helped a bit - my OBGyn was OK with that medication, you can mention it to your doctor. Not a miracle cure though. The Albuterol inhaler (blue spray?) never worked for me and it will also get my heart racing very badly.
Then he put me on Spiriva and I had no problem. If I'm not mistaken, doesn't this Dexamethasone have some of the same ingredients as Symbicort -- namely steroids?
he said it was unusual i did better on the test without the inhaler..he gave me symbicort 160/4.5 and a prescription for a albuterol nebulizer.....i am really frustrated and depressed now..i feel like crying at times..i dont know whats wrong with me..i've had x rays done...i've had an ekg test done...blood tests...all came out literally sick of all this...i want to feel healthy again... i want to feel like the old me and not worry about my breath all the time...
