How safe is symbacourt to take, taking nebulizer every 4 hours needed more help was given symbicourt I have asthma all my life, have used advair a few years ago, stopped because of loosing insurance. Lately having to use nebulizer every four or five hours, always feel tight. My doctor gave me three samples of symbicourt.

You can take symbicort, however it being a steroid aggravates the heart pressure, although it reduces the wheezing in the body. 

I suggest you bring the cough down with a gentle steroid like asthalin and then try out symbicort, Duolin etc.

But health foods like garlic, apples, wheat, etc helps a lot in bringing the wheezing down. You can get the info from healandhealth, I too am an asthmatic and feel for you. But Foods, fruits helps a lot too as it has done for me.

Hi.. Both advair and symbicourt are inhalational steroids.. These drugs are helpful in controlling the symptoms of asthma and help preventing the episodes.. Since they are inhalational drugs,  regular side effects of steroids are absent.. Hence you can safely use these drugs..
