When you have lung disease like emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), the inflammation or narrowing of the airway walls can lead to decreased airflow over time, which can result in shortness of breath, wheezing, or tightness of the chest. For people with severe asthma, exposure to inhaled irritants or triggers like pollen, dust, dander, and smoke can cause swelling and inflammation as well.

The good news is you don’t have to suffer: medicines like SYMBICORT by AstraZeneca help reduce the inflammation in the lungs and helps keep airways open. When used as prescribed, SYMBICORT is a maintenance treatment used to help significantly improve lung function in COPD, starting within 5 minutes (results vary). It will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms, but you may notice that you have less symptoms overall or use less rescue medicine.

Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and whether SYMBICORT is right for you. For product information, prescribing information, medication guide, and possible side effects, visit mysymbicort.com.
