Description

What is a Foracort Inhaler?

The combination drug for the respiratory system includes the Foracort Inhaler 400. They are employed in the long-term maintenance therapy of COPD and asthma (characterized by wheezing and shortness of breath).

Formoterol 6mcg and Budesonide 400mcg are two salts found in Foracort Inhaler 400 that are useful for treating COPD and asthma.

The inhaler requires a prescription to use. It will be prescribed by your doctor, who will also recommend the right dosage based on your health.

Foracort 400 is produced by renowned pharmaceutical manufacturer Cipla Ltd.

What is Foracort Inhaler used for

Foracort Inhaler 400 aids in treating and preventing Asthma attacks and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

Foracort 400 Inhaler allows for increased physical activity without wheezing, coughing, or shortness of breath.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder is a lung disease that causes airflow obstruction, making it difficult to expel air from the lungs.

Due to this obstruction, patients have trouble breathing or become exhausted from the effort required to breathe.

How does Foracort Inhaler work

Foracort Inhaler 400 combines two medicines: Formoterol and Budesonide.

Formoterol belongs to Long-Acting Beta-Agonists (LABA) or Bronchodilators. 

It relaxes and dilates the respiratory tract muscles, making breathing easier for people with COPD and Asthma.

A corticosteroid, or steroid, Budesonide belongs to the same family.

It reduces the production of Prostaglandins, which are chemical messengers that lead to inflammation (swelling) of the airways.

Together, they control Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders (COPD) symptoms. 

Dosage:

Budesonide 400 mcg and Formoterol Fumarate 6 mcg are the active chemicals of Foracort Inhalers, which are used to treat allergies and asthma.

Although inhalers come in a variety of strengths and alternatives, they should only be administered with a prescription.

The frequency and dosage of Foracort Inhaler 400 should be discussed with your doctor because each patient’s age and disease severity are unique.
