How Symbiva 200mcg Capsule works

Symbiva 200mcg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Formoterol and Budesonide which work well in worsening asthma or COPD.

Budesonide is a steroid which stops the release of certain natural substances that cause inflammation (swelling) in the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.
