ASTHMA

Asthma is a disease where the airways of the lungs become narrow and inflamed (swollen), making it difficult to breathe. This may be due to an allergy to house dust mites, smoke, air pollution or other things that irritate your lungs.
DuoResp Spiromax contains budesonide and formoterol in one inhaler.
Budesonide helps to improve your condition and to prevent asthma attacks from occurring. It is a "preventer" and needs to be taken regularly.
Formoterol helps you breathe more easily. It should also be taken regularly to help control your symptoms.
Budesonide and formoterol in combination, when used regularly, will help prevent asthma attacks and make it easier to breathe normally.
DuoResp Spiromax can also be used as a "reliever" when needed to treat your symptoms when your asthma gets worse and when used regularly will help prevent asthma attacks.COPD (which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema) is a long-term lung disease. There is often permanent narrowing and persistent inflammation of the airways.
Symptoms may include difficulty in breathing (breathlessness or wheezing), coughing and increased sputum.
