Pulmicort with the active ingredient budesonide, a synthetic cortisone, can treat asthma. Pulmicort is a turbohaler, which is mainly used for the permanent treatment of respiratory diseases.
What is Pulmicort?
Pulmicort is a metered-dose asthma inhaler used to treat bronchial asthma, allergic asthma, bronchial carcinoma, pulmonary emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Budesonide, the main active ingredient, is a synthetic glucocorticoid which is a related substance to cortisone. Cortisone itself is a hormone produced by the body itself. The active ingredient budesonide, inhibits the body's own chronic inflammatory reactions and processes, and is therefore not only used for respiratory diseases, but also as a drug for the local treatment of non-infectious rhinitis, nasal polyps, inflammatory bowel diseases and chronic inflammation of the liver as a result of autoimmune hepatitis.
What exactly is Pulmicort used for?
For respiratory diseases, such as chronic bronchial asthma. In the case of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), if the doctor in the pulmonary function examination previously determined the necessity of glucocorticoids applied by inhalation.
However, the drug is NOT suitable for treatment of an acute asthma attack.
How does the Pulmicort Broncho Inhaler work?
The effect is anti-inflammatory. Infections and inflammations in the bronchial and respiratory tract subside with regular use, as the substance related to cortisone inhibit the body’s own processes which continue to nourish inflammation. In chronic diseases, the inflammations cannot thrive and the swelling of the affected lung membrane subsides.
