Safety and tolerability

Symbicort has a proven safety profile

  • Since Symbicort contains both budesonide and formoterol, the same pattern of undesirable effects as reported for these substances may occur.1-3
  • The most common drug-related adverse reactions are pharmacologically predictable side-effects of ß2-adrenoceptor agonist therapy, such as tremor and palpitations; these tend to be mild and usually disappear within a few days of treatment.1-3
