Mode of Action of Foracort 200mcg Synchrobreathe With Dose Counter Bottle Of 120md

How Does It Work?

  • Foracort 200 Synchrobreathe inhaler works by the combined action of Formoterol and Budesonide.
  • Budesonide is a corticosteroid medicine, which on inhalation reduces inflammation in the airways in a dose-dependent manner, thus reduces the chances of worsening asthma.
  • Formoterol acts on the muscles in the airway tract. In the presence of inflammation (like in asthma), these muscles lead to constriction of the airway and causing breathlessness.
  • Formoterol relaxes these muscles, facilitating the opening of the airway and thus relieving breathlessness.
