Hello Manikandan.G

1. Full form 200 contains Beclomethasone (a cortico steroid) + Formoterol (a broncho dilator).
2. Formonide contains Budesonide(a cortico steroid) + Formoterol (a broncho dilator).

Both the preparations act in the similar way to provide relief in Asthma....i.e. by reducing the inflammation & causing broncho-dilation (dilating the smaller airway passages, relieving the obstruction & increasing airflow to lungs.

However, if you feel that you get better relief with the use of Fullform, then you can consult your treating physician & discuss regarding this matter.

Wishing you a Healthy Life.
Take care.
