Details

Asthma and COPD are the allergic and inflammatory breathing disorders   Foracort inhaler is a co Budesonide and Formoterol Fumarate. Budesonide is a corticosteroid having anti- inflammatory activities and Formoterol is a bronchodilator which relaxes smooth muscles of air passages to improve air inflow and breathing. It is an inhalational product used to reduce the bronchospasm of asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This product should be used only on medical prescription of doctor.

How does it act?             

Foracort inhaler consists of Budesonide and Formoterol Fumarate. Budesonide is a corticosteroid exhibiting anti-inflammatory action. Budesonide inhibits various cells (e.g. eosinophil, mast cells, macrophages, neutrophils and lymphocytes) and mediators of inflammation (e.g. eicosanoids, histamine, leukotrienes, and cytokines) responsible for asthma. Formoterol is a ling acting beta2 receptor agonist (LABA) which initiates the activity of an enzyme known as adenyl cyclase. This enzyme converts adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). The increased amount of cyclic AMP results in bronchial smooth muscle relaxation and stops the release of inflammatory mediators.  This alleviates the symptoms of asthma and COPD.
