Symbicort 160mcg/4.5mcg Turbuhaler is a combination of two medication in a one inhaler. It works by inhibiting the release of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) and relaxes the muscles of the airways.
Your doctor will let you how long you need to use your inhaler. The effect of this medicine may be noticed after a few days, but it will only reach its full limit after a few weeks. This medicine must be taken on a regular basis to be efficient, so continue to take it even if you have no symptoms. That means that its doing its job.
Your symptoms can get worse if you stop taking them. It should not be used to alleviate the sudden shortness of breath.If there is a sudden shortness of breath, use the inhaler for relief. You need to make sure you have the right inhaler technique to get full advantage of this drug, otherwise it doesn't work as well.

Some of the side effects do not require any medical attention and resolve as the body responds to the medication. Consult your doctor if they continue or if you are worried about them.
The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting, respiratory infection, voice hoarseness, fungal infections in the mouth, coughing, headache, sore throat, musculoskeletal (bone, muscle or joint) pain, and increased heart rate.
You can prevent all of these symptoms by rinsing your mouth and throat with water or by brushing your teeth with your inhaler. There are other, more rare, side effects that may be severe. If you are unsure about them, speak to your doctor.
