When the patient inhales this medication, Budesonide starts to act by controlling the rate of protein synthesis and then it inhibits the migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes as well as the fibroblast cells.

The cyclic AMP(adenosine monophosphate) is responsible for the relaxation of the bronchial smooth muscles of the lung. So when you take this combination medicine, Formoterol influence the adenyl cyclase, which is an intracellular enzyme. So this enzyme catalyzes sdenosine triphosphate and converted it to cyclic-3, 5-adenosine monophosphate (cyclic AMP). So the cyclic AMP increases in amount and it causes the relaxation of the bronchial smooth muscles. It also stops the release of histamines and leukotrines, which are the mediators of inflammatory mast cells and influence in reducing the respiratory airway inflammation.
