Pulmicort turbohaler is an asthma inhaler for the prevention of wheezing, shortness of breath, cough and other asthma symptoms. It belongs to a group of inhalers called steroid inhalers. It contains the corticosteroid budesonide, which reduces inflammation and swelling, thereby making it easier for you to breathe. The active ingredient budesonide is long-acting, which means the inhaler is not to be used to treat acute symptoms. You must make sure you always have a reliever inhaler at hand in the event of symptoms or an asthma attack.
Before you take the first inhalation from a turbohaler, you need to prepare it. In order to do so, take off the white lid and hold the inhaler in an upright position. Turn the grip at the base of the inhaler as far as you can in one direction and then in the other direction. Avoid holding the mouthpiece. You will hear a clicking noise, which means that the inhaler is ready for use.
To inhale again, repeat these steps in the same order. Once you have taken the last inhalation, put the white lid back on and rinse your mouth. Rinsing your mouth straight after an inhalation helps avoid side effects. You should clean your inhaler once a week, using a dry tissue (do not use water or detergent).
The medicine in Pulmicort needs to be taken every day in order to provide effective protection from asthma symptoms. Your GP will tell you how often you need to use your inhaler and whether you have to take one or two inhalations each time. You must follow your GP’s instructions carefully. Do not stop using Pulmicort, even if your symptoms improve. Always consult your GP before changing the number of inhalations you take. If your asthma gets better or worse, your GP will assess whether your medication or dosage needs to be changed.

Pulmicort Turbohaler 100 - 200 doses which contain 100 micrograms of budesonide each
