Uses
Foracort 400 Inhaler (Budesonide/Formoterol) works by opening up the airways and reducing inflammation. It is indicated for the prevention of bronchospasms due to asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This medicine combines 2 different ingredients, both of which act in different ways to help protect against asthma. Budesonide is a corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory properties and glucocorticoid action. It is known to work by acting on a wide range of different cell types and mediators of inflammation (such as histamine and leukotrienes), many of which are known to contribute to inflammation.

This helps to decrease and prevent inflammation in the respiratory tract. Formoterol is a quick acting beta 2 agonist (also called bronchodilator). It targets the beta 2 receptors in the bronchial smooth muscle, and stimulates them. As a result of this, the airways are able to widen, and this helps ease breathing difficulties due to asthma or COPD, which generally occur due to the airways becoming narrow. Although this medicine can act quickly to ease breathing, it is not effective for acute asthma attacks and is only used for prevention.

Dosage and Administration
Foracort 400 Inhaler (Budesonide/Formoterol) contains enough medicine to provide 120 measured doses. In all cases, the dosage will be adjusted according to the needs of each individual patient. Therefore, you will be required to follow the instructions of your doctor. Generally, this inhaler is used on a regular basis, for maintenance treatment. Your doctor may direct you to administer 1 inhalation 2 times per day. The maximum dosage that doctors prescribe is 2 inhalations 2 times per day. Never take more than the dosage recommended, and ensure that you fully comply with all directions provided by your doctor.
