Symbicort

Symbicort Inhalers are widely used for preventing attacks caused by obstructed airways (asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The NHS (National Health Service) in the UK and Medsafe in New Zealand recommend the regular use of Symbicort as a way of preventing attacks of breathlessness.

Symbicort works by relieving inflammation thus causing airways to widen, helping you to breathe more easily. Using Symbicort regularly at the same time each day is proven to relieve symptoms of airway diseases.


It is important to note that Symbicort will not give you fast-relief of your symptoms once an attack has started.
