Pulmicort Turbohaler is an asthma treatment manufactured by AstraZeneca. It is a preventer medication, which means that it stops asthma symptoms before they occur, by lessening inflammation in the airways. Dispensed through a turbohaler, it works in a similar way to traditional inhalers; but the user does not have to press down a button during use.

In the UK alone, over 5 million people are thought to be living with asthma, and receiving treatment. The condition causes a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including breathlessness, coughing and wheezing; and can sometimes culminate in an attack, whereby these symptoms can manifest in an intense episode.

What causes asthma is not completely understood. A heightened immune response is thought to be the main cause of inflammation, and this might occur when the body is exposed to certain triggers. These may include smoke, cold air, the presence of an allergen, vapours or particles from a chemical, or dust. Many people experience symptoms when they engage in intense physical activity, and some may even get an attack during periods of emotional stress.

Typically, inflammation in the bronchi and trachea (or the tubes which connect to the lungs, and the windpipe) causes the muscle walls which line these airways to tense up and contract. This makes these passages narrower, and makes breathing harder. In some cases, mucus can develop in these areas and make respiration even more difficult.

In Pulmicort is a functioning constituent called budesonide. This substance is a corticosteroid, which blocks the release of chemicals by the immune system in response to a trigger; thereby reducing inflammation and decreasing the likelihood of symptoms. It also works to prevent the production of obstructing mucus.

With our express service, you can get fast access to the asthma treatment you need online. Just take our short medical assessment.

How to use Pulmicort

To ensure Pulmicort is effective and keep the risk of side effects to a minimum, it is important to adhere to the guidelines specified in the patient information leaflet, and only ever use your medication in the manner your doctor has instructed.

  1. Inhale as prescribed.
  2. Depending on the seriousness of your symptoms, this will usually be either 1 or 2 inhalations, once or twice a day.
  3. A doctor may increase your administration if your symptoms are worsening.
  4. To prepare your turbohaler, twist the base in one direction, then back the other way, until you hear a click. It is now ready for use.
  5. Unscrew and remove the white lid.
  6. Breathe out as far as is comfortable.
  7. Place the turbohaler in your mouth.
  8. Inhale through the turbohaler.
  9. Slowly breathe out.
  10. If you need to administer more than once inhalation, repeat the above steps. 
  11. Following use, replace the lid.
  12. Never exceed the prescribed dose.
  13. This medication should not be stopped suddenly without first speaking to your doctor.
  14. If you forget to take it, do not compensate by doubling up on your next dose. Continue the course as before, and contact your doctor if you become concerned.

Please note that these directions are only a summary. More detailed instructions can be found in the leaflet supplied.
