You'll see asthma patients getting the new combo bronchodilator and corticosteroid inhaler called Symbicort...from AstraZeneca.

It contains formoterol, the same long-acting beta-agonist in Oxeze...and budesonide, the same corticosteroid in Pulmicort.

Symbicort is the second such combo inhaler to hit the market...following Advair (salmeterol-fluticasone).
