    Expert advice for Levosalbutamol/Levalbuterol + Budesonide

    • Levosalbutamol/Levalbuterol + Budesonide is a combination of two medicines that makes breathing easier for patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
    • This medicine is for inhalation only. The tablet should not be swallowed.
    • It should be taken at the same time each day.
    • It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. Use your rescue inhaler to control sudden difficulty in breathing. 
    • Dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help.
    • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
    • Take the first dose of this medicine under medical supervision as it may cause wheezing or tightening of the airways (bronchospasm) immediately after using.
    • Your doctor may regularly monitor your  blood potassium level as low oxygen level in the blood (hypoxia) and medicines such as Levosalbutamol/Levalbuterol + Budesonide can lower blood potassium level.
    • Only miniscule amounts of Levosalbutamol/Levalbuterol + Budesonide may get absorbed into the bloodstream after inhalation. Hence, serious side effects are unlikely.
