Foracort Rotacaps 400 mcg 6 mcg combines two medicines to relieve the long-term symptoms of asthma and COPD, making breathing difficult. The first active ingredient Budesonide is a corticosteroid drug that stops the release of inflammation-causing chemicals and substances in the body. Formoterol Fumarate, on the other hand, is a bronchodilator that functions by relaxing muscles in the air passages to enhance breathing.
This combination helps the airways in your lungs to stay open, thus causing the relaxation of muscles of these airways, which in turn allows an easy passage for air to get in and out. It will relieve symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing and coughing and help you perform daily activities more easily. This asthma medicine generally begins to work within a few minutes, and the effects may last up to several hours.
Foracort Rotacaps will not prevent an asthma attack that has already started. Don’t use this medication in such an incident.
Formoterol Fumarate may raise the risk of asthma-related death. Remember to use only as prescribed. Consult your doctor about the individual risks and benefits of this medication.
Do not use Budesonide and Formoterol Fumarate medication without your health care expert’s advice if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding. Don’t give this medication to children below four years of age. This medication may affect growth in children as it contains a steroid. Tell your doctor if you think your child’s growth pattern is improper while using this medication.
The use of medications containing steroids can be damaging to bone health and cause osteoporosis (porous bones). The risks increase largely if you smoke, don’t exercise, have vitamin D or calcium deficiency, or have a history of osteoporosis in your family lineage.
Headache, cough, upper respiratory tract infections, sinus inflammation, stomach discomfort, tremors, voice change, palpitations, and voice change. Most side effects do not require any medical help and resolve as your body adjusts to the medicine. However, it is important to contact a doctor if they become bothersome or persist longer.
Your doctor will advise you on how you need to use Foracort Rotacaps. You may notice noticeable improvement within a few days but reach its maximum benefit after a few weeks. For this medicine to be effective, it is important to use it regularly, even if you do not have symptoms. Stopping the medication early may make your symptoms worse. It is not intended to relieve sudden shortness of breath. If sudden breathing difficulties occur, use your rescue inhaler as your doctor prescribes. Furthermore, to benefit from the medicine, you must ensure you properly use the inhaler; otherwise, Foracort rotacaps do not work either.
