Asthma

Drug Interaction

06/06/2006

Question:

Is it wise/safe to use both Azmacort inhaler and Pulmicort Respules at the same time (in conjunction with one another??)

Answer:

Both of these medications are inhaled corticosteroids. There are no drug interactions between these two medications.  However, it is typically not recommended to use both inhalers unless your doctor is trying to give you a higher dose of an inhaled corticosteroid but in that case they could increase the number of puffs of one or the other inhaler.
