Details

Pulmicort inhaler is the topical dosage form used for targeted drug delivery. Medicine directly reaches to lungs without affecting other organs. It contains budesonide as the therapeutic entity. It is an anti-inflammatory agent which is used for symptomatic treatment of asthma and other lung disorders like emphysema and bronchitis. This inhaler has to be used only under the prescription of a doctor. It can be used with other anti-asthmatic medicines like bronchodilators. It is a corticosteroid which acts directly on the lungs reducing irritation, swelling of the airways.

INDICATIONS/USES

Budesonide is used for the prophylaxis of asthma in both adults and children of 6 years and above. Budesonide is used for mitigation of lung disorders such as bronchitis and emphysema. It is also recommended for patients who were previously on oral corticosteroid therapy.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Beclomethasone is a synthetic glucocorticoid similar to adrenal hormone cortisol. It blocks the inflammatory process by inhibiting the agents for inflammation like leukocytes, histamine, eosinophil, cytokines and neutrophils; it is responsible for suppressing humoral immunity. It also inhibits the cells which release inflammatory mediates. Theses mediators are responsible for allergic symptoms associated with asthma. Budesonide prevents exacerbations of asthma by acting as an anti-inflammatory agent.

DOSAGE

Dose of budesonide depends on the previous therapy and age of the patient. Always use the dose mentioned by your doctor.
