The Symbicort Turbohaler contains two active ingredients: budesonide and formoterol. Budesonide is a steroid, which works by reducing the inflammation in the lungs. Whereas, Formoterol opens and relaxes the airways, making it easier to breathe. The Symbicort Turbohaler should not be used during an attack of breathlessness, as it is not designed for instant relief and it will not work. For this you should use a reliever inhaler such as Ventolin. If you would like to order inhalers through Dr Felix, simply complete the 2 minute online consultation. Our UK registered doctors will assess your responses, before issuing a prescription if the inhaler is safe for you. Dr Felix encourages regular check ups of your asthma with your local doctor or nurse.
Prescription fees enable our qualified doctors to issue you a prescription for your medication, just like if you visit your local pharmacy. Instead of a high flat rate like the NHS, we offer cheaper fees based on the total cost of your order.
