Symbicort may have few side effects like all drugs. However, very most of the times its a safe drug and does not cause any big problem.

We do give trials of it, so you may use it. However, if you don't feel very short you may wait for the tests before its use.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
