What is Foracort Forte Inhaler?

Foracort Forte Inhaler is a combination of two medicines in one inhaler. It relieves the long-term symptoms of asthma and COPD, making breathing easier.

It works by inhibiting the release of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) and relaxes the muscles in the airways.

Your doctor will tell you how often you need to use your inhaler. The effect of this medicine may be noticeable after a few days but will only reach its maximum after a few weeks.

This medicine must be used regularly to be effective, so go on taking it even if you don’t have any symptoms.
