Symbicort Rotacaps

Symbicort Rotacaps

Symbicort Rotacaps contains two active medication products: budesonide and formoterol. Budesonide comes from the pharmacological group of medications called corticosteroids. This medication is known for its healing effect on asthma by reducing the swelling in the airways of the lungs. On the other side, Formoterol is classified as bronchodilator medication that comes in action by relaxing the muscles around the airways in the respiratory system and helps to open the airways to ease breathing. When combined, these medications help to control the symptoms of asthma and prevent asthma attacks by keeping the airways open to make breathing easier.
