Budesonide Salbutamol

Budesonide Salbutamol

How does this medication work?

Budesonide belongs to the class of medications called corticosteroids. It is used to treat asthma. It helps to control the symptoms of asthma and prevent asthma attacks by reducing the swelling in the airways of the lungs. When used regularly, it will reduce the number and severity of asthma attacks. It will not relieve an asthma attack once it has already started. Regular daily use is important for its effectiveness.
