Buy Symbicort Inhaler Online

Buying Symbicort has never been easier. Buying medication from Canada Pharmacy Depot is quick, efficient and affordable. Order online or call us today and we will ship your prescription and over the counter medications directly to your door saving you long lines and unnecessary hassle going to your local pharmacy as well as up to 90% of the cost of your medication.

What is Symbicort?

Symbicort Inhaler is a combination inhaler containing both budesonide and formoterol and is used to prevent and control the symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as shortness of breath or wheezing. Budesonide is a corticosteroid which reduces the swelling and irritation of the airways whereas formoterol is a long-acting beta agonist which opens the airways in your lungs. Symbicort should be used regularly to make breathing easier. It does not work immediately and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma or bronchospasm attacks.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication. Follow your doctor’s directions.

  • Prime the inhaler by spraying it away from your face if this is your first use, if you have not used it for more than a week or if the inhaler was dropped.
  • Shake the inhaler well for five seconds before each inhalation. This medication is usually taken twice daily, twelve hours apart, in the morning and evening.
  • If your prescribed dose is two puffs or if you use any other inhalers, wait at least one minute between puffs. Use Symbicort after any other inhalers.
  • To prevent yeast infections, rinse your mouth out with water without swallowing after each use of Symbicort.
  • Clean your inhaler with a dry cloth at least once a week without taking your inhaler apart.
  • Ask your doctor how using Symbicort affects your dosing schedule of any other inhalers or corticosteroids as you may need to taper off or reduce the use of other medications.
  • Symbicort is most effective when it is taken regularly. Try to take this medication at the same times each day. It can take up to a week before your symptoms begin to improve. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens.
  • Symbicort is not a rescue medication and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma or bronchospasm attacks.


Make sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you have any drug or other allergies.
  • Which other prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take.
  • Your medical history especially of heart disease, thyroid disorder, liver disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, tuberculosis, seizures, a weak immune system, osteoporosis, glaucoma, cataracts, other vision problems or an electrolyte imbalance such as low potassium levels in the blood.
  • If you are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breast feeding. It is unknown if this medication will harm an unborn baby.

Also be aware that:

  • This medication may cause QT prolongation. This risk may be increased if you take any other medications which cause QT prolongation or if you have certain medical conditions. Older adults may be more sensitive to this. Ask your doctor for more information.
  • Symbicort may mask signs of infections, make you more likely to get infections or worsen current infections. Always wash your hands thoroughly and avoid people with contagious diseases.
  • Before any medical or dental surgery or procedures, you should tell all of your doctors and dentists that you use or have used a corticosteroid in the last 12 months.
  • Symbicort may temporarily slow down a child’s growth. Regularly see your doctor so your child’s height can be checked.

Side effects of Symbicort

Common Symbicort side effects may include but are not limited to:

  • Headaches.
  • Throat irritation.
  • Stomach upset.

Contact your doctor if you experience any of the following side effects of Symbicort:

  • Sudden severe worsening of breathing problems immediately after use. Use your quick-relief inhaler and contact your doctor if this occurs.
  • Raised blood pressure. Check your blood pressure regularly.
  • White patches in your mouth or on your tongue.
  • Signs of infection such as persistent sore throat or fever.
  • Mental or mood changes such as nervousness.
  • Vision problems such as blurred vision.
  • Sleeping problems.
  • Muscle cramps or shaking.
  • Increased urination or thirst.
  • Chest pain, severe dizziness, fainting, seizures or a fast, slow or irregular heartbeat.
  • Signs of an allergic reaction such as hives, difficulty breathing or a swelling of your face, lips or throat.


What is the difference between Symbicort Turbuhaler and inhaler?

The medication in both the Symbicort inhaler and Symbicort turbuhaler is budesonide and formoterol. However, the device is different and has a different delivery system. Always follow your doctor’s directions. 

What else is Symbicort called?

Symbicort is also known as Vannair. Vannair is not a generic alternative but the same brand name medication with a different name internationally. The generic alternative to Symbicort is known as budesonide/formoterol.

Hello, as a retired USA pharmacist, I can say that Canada Pharmacy Depot has 2 awesome points in my book. Number 1 is the saving cost. If I use my Medicare D plan, I'm into the "coverage gap" in January. It amazes me how over priced the USA system is, sad I have to say that, but it is totally true. Point Number 2 is your customer service. I used to try to go out of my way for patients. I'm definitely glad seeing the staff at Canada Pharmacy Depot embodies that same desire....KUDOS... Paul
