Asthma

Asthma is a common lung condition that causes occasional breathing difficulties.

It affects people of all ages and often starts in childhood, although it can also develop for the first time in adults.

There’s currently no cure, but there are simple treatments that can help keep the symptoms under control so it doesn’t have a big impact on your life.

Symptoms
The main symptoms of asthma are:

wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing)
breathlessness
a tight chest, which may feel like a band is tightening around it
coughing
The symptoms can sometimes get temporarily worse. This is known as an asthma attack.

Several conditions can cause similar symptoms, so it’s important to get a proper diagnosis and correct treatment.

Your GP will usually be able to diagnose asthma by asking about symptoms and carrying out some simple tests.

Treatments
Asthma is usually treated by using an inhaler, a small device that lets you breathe in medicines.

The main types are:

reliever inhalers – used when needed to quickly relieve asthma symptoms for a short time
preventer inhalers – used every day to prevent asthma symptoms occurring
Some people also need to take tablets.

Causes and triggers
Asthma is caused by swelling (inflammation) of the breathing tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. This makes the tubes highly sensitive, so they temporarily narrow.

It may occur randomly or after exposure to a trigger. Common asthma triggers include:

allergies – to house dust mites, animal fur or pollen, for example
smoke, pollution and cold air
exercise
infections like colds or flu
Identifying and avoiding your asthma triggers can help you keep your symptoms under control.

Complications
Although asthma can normally be kept under control, it’s still a serious condition that can cause a number of problems.

This is why it’s so important to follow your treatment plan and not ignore your symptoms if they’re getting worse.

Badly controlled asthma can cause problems such as:

feeling tired all the time
underperformance at or absence from work or school
stress, anxiety or depression
disruption of your work and leisure because of unplanned visits to your GP or hospital
lung infections (pneumonia)
delays in growth or puberty in children
There’s also a risk of severe asthma attacks, which can be life-threatening.

Side Effects

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

If either of the following happen to you, stop using Pulmicort Turbohaler and talk to your doctor immediately:

Swelling of your face, particularly around your mouth (with possible swelling of the lips, tongue, eyes and ears), rash, itching, contact dermatitis (a skin problem), hives and bronchospasm (tightening of the muscles in the airways which causes wheezing). This may mean that you are having an allergic reaction. This happens rarely, affecting less than 1 in 1,000 people.

Sudden wheezing after inhaling your medicine. If this happens, also use your ‘reliever’ inhaler straight away. This happens very rarely, affecting less than 1 in 10,000 people.

Other possible side effects:
Common (may affect up to 1 in 10 people)
Thrush (a fungal infection) in the mouth. This is less likely if you rinse your mouth out with water after using your Turbohaler.
Mild sore throat, coughing and a hoarse voice.
Pneumonia (infection of the lung) in COPD patients.

Tell your doctor if you have any of the following while taking budesonide they could be symptoms of a lung infection:
• Fever or chills.
• Increased mucus production, change in mucus colour.
• Increased cough or increased breathing difficulties.

Uncommon (may affect up to 1 in 100 people)
Feeling worried, restless and nervous.
Depression.
Trembling and shaking.
Cataract (clouding of the lens in the eye).
Muscle cramps.
Blurred vision.

Rare (may affect up to 1 in 1,000 people)
Sleeping problems, feeling over-excited or irritable. These effects are more likely to occur in children.
Bruising of the skin.
Loss of voice.
Hoarse voice (in children).

Inhaled corticosteroids can affect the normal production of steroid hormones in your body,
particularly if you use high doses for a long time, for example 400 micrograms or more daily
for several years. The effects include:
– changes in bone mineral density (thinning of the bones).
– glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye)
– a slowing of the rate of growth of children and adolescents (rare). If high doses are given over several years, final adult height may be reduced by about 1 cm.
– an effect on the adrenal gland (a small gland next to the kidney) (rare).

These effects are much less likely to happen with inhaled corticosteroids than with
corticosteroid tablets.

Reporting of side effects
If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. This includes any possible side
effects not listed in this leaflet. You can also report side effects directly via the Yellow Card
Scheme at: www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard. By reporting side effects you can help provide
