Pulmicort Turbohaler 100mcg 200 dosages, Budesonide
THIS IS THE BRAND MEDICATION
Pulmicort Inhl Uses: Budesonide is used to prevent and
reduce symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. Controlling
breathing problems may decrease lost time from work or school. This medication
belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the
lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the irritation and swelling of the
airways. This medication must be used regularly to prevent breathing problems
(attacks of wheezing/shortness of breath). It does not work immediately and
should not be used to relieve an asthma attack. If an attack occurs, use your
quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.
Keep track of how often you need to use your
quick-relief inhaler and inform your doctor. If your quick-relief inhaler does
not seem to work as well, if you need to use more than usual of your
quick-relief inhaler for 2 or more days in a row, or if you need to use more
than one full canister of your quick-relief inhaler over a 2-month period, seek
immediate medical attention.
Budesonide may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
Please consult your physician before taking any medication.
