symbicort working

Jul 17, 2009 - 3 comments

Using 7 - 8 puffs/day of symbicort is helping control the symptoms better. Still struggle though with chest tightness and excess mucous on daily basis.

I'm glad Symbicort is working for you!  I hope some of the chest tightness, and mucus symptoms improve soon!

Thanks for the confidence booster :-) My doctor told me that one puff of symbicort is equivalent to two puffs of salbutamol (the fast acting stuff). taking 1 to 2 additional puffs during the day to help with the chest tightness. Doesn't necessarily get rid of it, but it does improve the peak flows.
