Pulmicort is a synthetic glucocorticoid?steroid that is related to hydrocortisone and cortisone – natural hormones produced by the bodyAnd PulmicortTurbohaler consists of Glucocorticoid steroids that reduce hyperactivity and inflammation in airways and is used for asthma treatment. However, Pulmicort inhaler should not be relied on for treating acute asthma attacks; it is typically used for the prevention of asthma attacks.

Clinical studies show that Pulmicortis effective in preventing asthma symptoms. Typically, Pulmicort starts showing its effect within 24 hours, but in some cases, it can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to see the full benefits.

Pulmicort (inhaled corticosteroid) affects inflammatory cells including eosinophils and mast cells, which signals the prevention of inflammation-causing hormones, such as leukotrienes, histamine, and cytokines. This, therefore, reduces the risk of asthma attacks.

Pulmicort prevents asthma attacks in two ways:

  • It stops the release of inflammation-causing chemicals, thereby allowing easy flow of air through relaxed airways.
  • Pulmicort consists of budesonide which gets absorbed in the lining of airways and reduces inflammation for easy breathing.

Pulmicort Inhaler, a dry powder inhaler, comes in two strengths – 90 mcg and 180 mcg. Different doses are prescribed by doctors as per different age groups and the severity of the condition.

Before using your Pulmicort inhaler for the first time, open it and twist the grip in either direction. You will hear a click sound after a twist. After this, repeat the twist once more. This process is called priming, which needs not be repeated even if Turbohaler isn’t used for a long time.

  1. Hold the grip in a way that the white cover points up.
  2. Unscrew the cover and hold the grip with one hand and the centre of the inhaler with the other.
  3. Twist the grip in one direction as far as possible and then the other direction.
  4. Breathe out and press your lips around the mouthpiece before breathing in.
  5. Breathe in as hard as possible and then remove the inhaler from the mouth.
  6. Hold the breath for a second and then exhale.
  7. Repeat the inhalation if your doctor has advised more than one dose.
  8. Cover the inhaler back and rinse your mouth or brush your teeth to avoid voice hoarseness and thrush.
  9. In case of a missed Pulmicort dose, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take the missed dose if it’s almost time for the next dose.
