What is a Budecort 200 mcg Inhaler?

Budecort Inhaler is effective in preventing the symptoms of Asthma, like shortness of breath and wheezing. This Inhaler contains a steroid, but it is also a preventer.

Along with the Budecort inhaler, you also need to take a fast-acting reliever, as this drug will not stop your ongoing asthma attack that has started already. Budecort Inhaler contains Budesonide as its active ingredient and belongs to the class of medications known as glucocorticosteroids.

Doctors recommend this Inhaler to provide quick relief from the symptoms of Asthma and COPD. Asthma is a long-term respiratory condition in which airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus.

As a result, it becomes difficult for the patients to breathe properly. COPD is mainly a group of lung diseases that obstruct airflow from your lungs.
