Pulmicort Turbohaler is an inhaler. It contains a medicine known as a corticosteroid called Budesonide. Corticosteroids work by reducing and preventing swelling and inflammation in the lungs.
You’ll be prescribed a Pulmicort Turbohaler to treat asthma. Typically, a doctor will prescribe two types of inhalers. Pulmicort Turbohaler is one of these types and is called a preventer inhaler. The other type is known as a ‘reliever inhaler’.
The use of a preventer inhaler, as can be guessed from the name, is to prevent the symptoms of asthma by using it every day. A reliver inhaler is used when symptoms of asthma appear, making it easier to breathe again.
Pulmicort 100 Turbohaler
A Pulmicort 100 Turbohaler works as an Asthma treatment by reducing inflammation, swelling and irritation in the airways once it has been released deep into the lungs. Known as a preventer, Pulmicort 100 Turbohaler needs to be taken every day regularly, even if no symptoms are present.
On the chance of experiencing a sudden asthma attack, a Pulmicort 100 Turbohaler will not provide immediate relief of wheezing or breathlessness. A reliever inhaler is used for this situation and contains completely different medication.
Pulmicort Turbohaler 100
We currently sell three different strengths of the Pulmicort Turbohaler, Pulmicort Turbohaler 100. 200 and 400. The strength of medication you are prescribed will depend on the assessment of a doctor and whether or not the patient requires a higher or lower strength to manage their asthma.
If you feel that the Pulmicort Turbohaler 100 is too low for the severity of your condition, talk with your doctor about reassessing your condition and potentially increasing it to a 200 or 400 strength.
Pulmicort Turbohaler 100 Budesonide
The main ingredient called Budesonide in Pulmicort Turbohalers is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are regularly used to treat other conditions including –
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Urticaria (hives)
- Inflamed and painful joints, tendons and muscles
- & Many more
Steroids such as the one included in Pulmicort Turbohaler 100 Budesonide copy the effects of natural hormones produced by the adrenal glands. Once Pulmicort Turbohaler 100 Budesonide is inhaled, it begins calming the immune system down. By calming it down, inflammation and swelling is reduced making it easier to breathe.
Although not included in Pulmicort Turbohaler 100 Budesonide, sometimes a Budesonide inhaler will come mixed with formoterol. This is a type of inhaler that is classified as both a reliever and preventer. Some brands names include Symbicort Turbohaler & DuoResp Spiromax.

These conditions can progressively get worse over time and can limit an individual’s regular activities throughout the day.
People who have repeated attacks of breathlessness can use Pulmicort Turbohaler 200 and relieve symptoms of COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
COPD is a common condition that commonly affects middle aged or older adults who smoke. Symptoms can get worse over time, but treatment can help keep it under control. A large majority of people never realise they have it.
To significantly reduce the chances of developing COPD and having to use Pulmicort Turbohaler 200, smoking should be avoided.
As a largely preventable disease, if you already smoke, stopping can help prevent any further damage to the lungs.

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.
The main symptoms of asthma are:
wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing)
a tight chest, which may feel like a band is tightening around it
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.
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
infections like colds or flu
Identifying and avoiding your asthma triggers can help you keep your symptoms under control.
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.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
