About Pulmicort Turbohaler

Pulmicort Turbohalers are a preventative everyday treatment for the symptoms of asthma. This inhaler will help to control your asthma, as well as helping to prevent future attacks. Pulmicort works by reducing the inflammation within the airways, making it much easier to breathe. This is done with an active ingredient called budesonide, a corticosteroid.

Pulmicort is a popular alternative to aerosol inhalers. The medicine is present in powder form, and the device is activated by simply twisting its base and inhaling from the mouthpiece. This means that fewer steps and less coordination are required. The device also features an indicator window, which displays how many dosages are left.

Following a free consultation, you can purchase repeat supplies of Pulmicort Turbohaler through our online prescription service. This service is available to asthma sufferers who have been previously diagnosed with the condition by their GP.
