What is SYMBICORT?

To help improve your lung function, your doctor may want you to take a maintenance medicine—a medicine taken every day to help ease constriction and control inflammation in your airways.

SYMBICORT is a maintenance treatment used to help significantly improve lung function in COPD. When used as prescribed, SYMBICORT—an inhaler—has been shown to help patients breathe better starting within 5 minutes.*

*Your results may vary.

SYMBICORT may also help reduce your need to use your rescue inhaler.

Remember, SYMBICORT will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms.

Living with COPD


There are 2 medicines in SYMBICORT that work together to help improve lung function by both reducing the inflammation and relaxing the muscles around the airways:
 

ICS (ANTI-INFLAMMATORY)

The first medicine is an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) called budesonide. Budesonide helps to reduce inflammation (swelling) in the lungs and can help allow you to breathe more freely.

LABA (BRONCHODILATOR)

The second medicine is an inhaled long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) called formoterol. Formoterol helps to relax the smooth muscles around the airways in the lungs, allowing you to breathe easier.
