Pulmonologist 's  Response
Obucort (budesonide) is an inhaled drug used in asthma and meptid is an analgesic (pain killer). I would suggest that your sister should get herself evaluated from a pulmonologist and get managed accordingly since a diagnosis has first to be confirmed and then treated. Also both asthma and TB require specialised investigations and can be treated accordingly under a specialist care.
