Symbicort

Is Symbicort a pharmaceutical company? ## According to my container, Symbicort is made by the AstraZeneca UK Ltd. Or is it merely marketed by them? Oh, yes, I see that it's made by them at S-151 85 Sodertaije, Sweden, according to their leaflet ## Yes, Symbicort is made by AstraZeneca: mysymbicort.com/default.aspx ## That is correct, Symbicort is the name of a medication, not the name of a pharmaceutical company. As noted above, the pharmaceutical company that manufactures it is AstraZeneca. Symbicort is most commonly used to treat COPD, and asthma. Its typical side effects may include cough, rapid breathing, indigestion, throat irritation, and nausea. Is there anything I can help with?

tedral magnified senses

I thought i was mentally unbalanced. Seeing enlargements of real life in front of me. Increased hearing sensitivity. Shrinking rooms in front of me own eyes. For years thinking it was me. An unbalanced. Self. It all stopped as i got older until one day I was having an asthmatic condition and took the medicine the doctor had me take 3 times a day! Tedral!. The truck in front of my eyes, as i worked on the engine, seemed to shrink like what happened 5 ears previously. when I was taken tedral regularly. I wasn't crazy after all--- It was the medicine!

It would be nice to hear from others about their Tedral experience. This occurred 1952 ...

availability of or not of brondecon elixir

I recently went to my local chemist and was told that brondecon elixir is no longer available. WHY? It was the best stuff for a cough or cold and I want some for my bronchitus ## I had this issue also, i spoke with about 7 different chemists. They have stopped making it!!!!. I was it shock and horror, i suffer chronic asthma, it helped. I have been trying *NUELIN SYRUP* It is helping, but no as good. ## The only thing I can suggest is discussing it with your doctor to find another option that works for you. We have had several posts about this no longer being available, but I have no specific information as to why. What other options have you tried? ## Hi I always used brondecon too and since it went off the market I couldn't find anything as good until now... I am in Durban (SA) at...
