Is Symbicort safe?

Your Question:  I'm an asthmatic and have been taking Symbicort for three days, one puff twice a day.  Should I keep using it or stop?  From what I've read, I am afraid about side its side effects and that it may cause asthma-related death. 

My answer:  Your physicians prescribed this medicine because he believes the benefits outweigh the risks. It is a very good medicine for controlling and preventing asthma, and  is a top line asthma medicine. 
and, so long as it is used as prescribed, is considered safe. I wrote an article about just this topic a few years ago, and I will link to it here for you to review. If you have further questions please feel free to ask.
