Product introduction

Budecort 0.5mg Respules (2ml Each) is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma (wheezing and shortness of breath). It is a steroid and is known as a "preventer". You need to have a fast-acting “reliever” as well because this medicine will not stop an asthma attack that has already started.

The effect of this medicine may be noticeable after a few days but will only reach its maximum after a few weeks. This medicine must be used regularly to be effective, so go on taking it even if you do not have any symptoms. No symptoms mean that the medicine is doing its job. If you stop taking it your asthma may get worse. It should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler "reliever". To get the benefit from this medicine you need to make sure you get your inhaler technique right, otherwise, it will not work as well.

The most common side effects are irritation in the throat, difficulty swallowing, and fungal infections in the mouth or throat. If you get these, do not stop taking it but do talk to your doctor. You can help prevent these symptoms by rinsing your mouth and throat with water or brushing your teeth after using your inhaler. There are other rare, side effects that can be serious. Talk to your doctor if youare worried about them. In general, you should be trying to avoid situations that make your asthma worse (your triggers) and try not to smoke.

So your child's doctor will have to determine whether your child's symptoms are caused by asthma, a condition other than asthma, or both asthma and another condition.There are many underlying causes of your symptoms.
