What are the uses of the Foracort 6/200 MCG inhaler?

Foracort 200 inhaler is effective in treating the following medical conditions:

Asthma symptoms

Asthma is a respiratory disorder in which your airways narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus. Thus, it may cause breathing symptoms, but using a Foracort 200 inhaler may relieve these symptoms. You must note that this Inhaler will not help you with sudden asthma attack symptoms.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes congested airflow from your lungs. Such breathing disorders include problems like emphysema and chronic bronchitis. In this condition, the Foracort 200 inhaler helps to relax the muscles of the airways and helps in making breathing easier. You can start taking it as a maintenance treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

How does the Foracort 6/200 MCG inhaler work?

Foracort Inhaler is a combination medicine containing two active ingredients: budesonide and Formoterol. Both medicines work in different ways to improve lung function and decrease symptoms of asthma & COPD.

Budesonide, a synthetic corticosteroid, works by decreasing inflammation in airways. It does it by hindering the release of inflammatory mediators like leukotrienes and cytokines by controlling the activity of immune cells involved in an inflammatory response. Meanwhile, Formoterol is a long-acting beta-agonist bronchodilator that works by relaxing muscles in your airways. It aids in opening up the airways and enhances breathing.

Formoterol attains this by binding to beta-2 receptors in the lungs, leading to smooth muscle relaxation in the airway. After a single dose of Formoterol, you can get relief for almost 12 hours in symptoms of asthma and COPD because it is a long-acting medicine.
