Symbicort Turbuhaler. The Specificity of Use
Symbicort is the multi-dose inhaler that makes possible to dose and to inhale the drug in very small doses. When you inhale, a powder from Turbuhaler is delivered to the lungs. That is why, it is so important to inhale intensely and deeply.
Preparing for the first use
It is necessary to prepare Turbuhaler for work before its first use:
- Unscrew and remove a cap.
- Hold the inhaler upright. Do not hold a mouthpiece, when you turn a dosing device. Turn the dosing device against the stop in one direction, and then against the stop in the opposite direction. Do the procedure two times.
Now the inhaler is ready for use and you do not have to repeat this procedure before each use. Follow the instructions below for drug administration.
Do not attempt to remove the mouthpiece, since it is fixed on the inhaler and is not de-caped. Turbuhaler’s mouthpiece goes round but do not wheel it needlessly.
Since the amount of the inhaled powder is very small, you may not feel taste of the powder after inhalation. However, if you follow the instructions, you can be sure that you breathe (inhale) the appropriate dose of the drug.
If you repeat the procedure of the inhaler’s load by mistake, you still get one dose of the preparation.
The sound you hear while shaking the inhaler is due to the drying agent but not due to the medicine.
How do I know when the inhaler should be changed?
The doses’ indicator shows the approximate number of doses, remaining in the inhaler. The countdown of doses begins with 60th or 120th dose (depending on the total number of doses of the purchased Turbuhaler).
You can be sure that Turbuhaler brings the needful dose of the preparation, even if you do not notice any changes in the display window of the doses’ indicator.
Red ground-color in the display window means that there are as little as 10 doses of Symbicort.
Number 0 on the red ground-color in the middle of the display window of the doses’ indicator means that the inhaler should be discarded.
Mark you, that even when the display window of the doses’ indicator shows number 0, the dosing device continues to turn. However, the indicator stops to trace the doses’ number (stops to move) and in there is the number 0 in the display window of the doses’ indicator.
Clean the mouthpiece with dry cloth regularly (once a week). Do not use water or other liquids to clean the mouthpiece.
Be careful while utilizing the inhaler, keep in mind that there may be some preparation inside the inhaler.

I am experienced asthmatic. Not long ago, my new pulmonologist prescribed me Symbicort. After the first dose I wanted to live again, after the second – it seemed as I got another pair of lungs. Now I live without shortness of breath)))
The schedule time of the drug is 3 months. I regret one thing only – I had to visit this pulmonologist back on the old days.
