Pulmicort Turbohaler contains corticosteroids that can naturally reduce inflammation. They are able to do this because they reduce the release of chemical compounds that cause inflammation of airways.
This action is helpful to patients with asthma, because inflammation within airways tends to be naturally higher resulting in an increased sensitivity to irritants. A reduction in swelling within airways can also improve a patient's overall comfort the longer they use this treatment for.
Pulmicort is generally safe to use with a very low risk of side effects, but there are certain health conditions that may restrict you from using this treatment. For example, you should not use this inhaler if you are allergic to the active ingredient, you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you have liver problems or you currently have or have ever had tuberculosis. It may also interact with medications such as mifepristone, some anti-fungal treatments, barbituates or steroidal contraceptives.
If you are considering ordering this treatment online, you should ensure that you fill out the online consultation as thoroughly as possible, so that our doctor can have a clear understanding of your medical history and current health.
It is an easy to use inhaler available in three different doses: 100mcg, 200mcg and 400mcg. For extreme cases of asthma, a daily dose of up to 1,600mcg can be recommended. Doses are generally spread over the course of a day: one in the morning and one in the evening. You should never increase or decrease how often you use your inhaler without discussing it with your doctor first.
To use the inhaler, simply twist the base and inhale the powdered version of the active ingredient. Bear in mind that this treatment contains lactose, which might not make it suitable for everyone to take.
Side effects are fairly uncommon, but some people may be more sensitive to this treatment than others. Luckily many of the most common side effects are mild and include effects such as oral thrush, which can be avoided by rinsing your mouth thoroughly after every use. You may also initially experience side effects such as depression, a feeling of restlessness, nervousness or changes in behaviour, but these tend to go away.
If any of the above-mentioned side effects persist, you start to develop an allergic reaction or you experience anything that is worrying you, you should seek medical help.
