What is Pulmicort Turbohaler?

The Pulmicort Turbohaler is a preventer inhaler which contains budesonide in a dry powdered form and is used to prevent asthma symptoms. You should take your preventer inhaler daily.

The medicine is available in 100mcg, 200mcg and 400mcg dosages. Depending on your medical history and the severity of your symptoms, your doctor will prescribe the most appropriate dosage for you.

It is only available on prescription and can only be prescribed if you have been previously diagnosed with asthma.

How does Pulmicort Turbohaler work?

Pulmicort Turbohalers are intended to treat inflammation of the airways caused by asthma. The inflammation is caused by an autoimmune response to triggers such as:

  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Animal dander
  • Chest infections
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Exercise
  • Physical pain
  • Strong emotions (laughing and crying)
  • Weather (temperature and humidity)
  • Chemicals
  • Pollution

When one of these triggers affects the body - often through inhalation, histamines, leukotrienes, and cytokines are released. This caused inflammation in the airways and increases the amount of mucus produced in the lungs and airways, reducing airflow to the lungs.

Pulmicort's active ingredient, budesonide, is a corticosteroid which prevents inflammation and mucus secretion. Subsequently, the airways remain open and clear, making it easier to breathe.

How long does Pulmicort take to work?

Pulmicort begins to work within 24 to 48 hours, though the full effects may not be apparent until after a few weeks of continuous use.

How to use Pulmicort Turbohaler

The Turbohaler device is easy to use.

Before using your inhaler, check the number of remaining doses left.

Priming your Turbohaler

Before using your Turbohaler for the first time, you need to prime it.

To prime your Turbohaler, hold the inhaler upright with the mouthpiece pointing upwards.

Carefully remove the cap.

Turn the coloured base as far as it will go in one direction and then as far as it will go in the other direction. If done correctly, you should hear a click. It does not matter which direction you turn the base first.

Your Turbohaler is now ready to use.

Using your Turbohaler

To use your Turbohaler, hold the inhaler upright with the mouthpiece pointing upwards.

Carefully remove the cap.

Turn the coloured base as far as it will go in one direction and then as far as it will go in the other direction. If done correctly, you should hear a click. It does not matter which direction you turn the base first.

Gently breathe out away from your inhaler.

When you feel ready to breathe in, place the mouthpiece between your teeth and tighten your lips around the device. Do not bite the mouthpiece.

Breathe in deeply through the inhaler. You may not feel the medicine being inhaled.

Hold your breath for 10 seconds, or for as long as you feel comfortable.

Gently breathe out in a controlled manner.

If you need to take a second dose, repeat the steps above.

Once you have taken the required dose, put the cap back onto your inhaler.

After taking your dosage, rinse your mouth with water but do not swallow this water.

What should I do if I forget to take my Pulmicort Turbohaler?

If you forget to take a dose, skip the missed and continue to use your Pulmicort Turbohaler as you should. Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose you missed.

What should I do if I take too much Pulmicort?

If you take more Pulmicort than you should, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice immediately.
