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: ## 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! Anyone else experience shrinking heads, feelings of speed' before the term existed? Why was it taken off the market? Everyone have these problems? It would be nice to hear from others about their Tedral experience. This occurred 1952 ...

tedral 25

What are the affects of tedral 25? ## Where can I find the medicne Tedral pills for my asthma it has been 20 years sence I last had them and the new stuff does not work. Any help would be great ## I'm looking too Bruce, in the same boat. Seems like it was pulled to be replaced with an expensive non-OTC alternative.

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...

Bronchitis, resultant asthma like symptoms

Severe bronchitis event, followed by bronchial spasms and all nite coughing. Now feel somewhat asthmatic,had asthma as a child up to age 12 now 81. Was the coughing injurious to the avolia and should I not be surprised if this became permanent. ## Hello, JaCee! How are you? Our bodies do change, as we age, so it is possible that you've just developed asthma, again. It could even be the factor behind your developing bronchitis, according to the NIH. It happened to me recently, too. I'm 45 and had not had any severe allergy problems in years and no asthma attacks, either… but suddenly, I started having respiratory allergy issues, again, they lingered for awhile, turned into bronchitis and I still get asthma attacks. It is annoying, but just the way our bodies work, sometimes...

Xolair WORKS for Chronic Hives

I have had chronic hives for 10+ years. I've taken Prednisone, Benedryl, Zantac, Zyrtec & Several other medications to lesson the effects of this awful curse.

I am so glad that you found something that's helping and I hope it continues for you! I've not had chronic hives, but I have gotten them...

Surprising side effects

Started using Symbicort with aerochamber couple days before Txgiving, in accordance with Dr.'s advice (first time user) - I've lost 1/3 of breathing capacity and developed asthma from exposure to toxic mold. First time I used it, felt trembley, nervous - like I was on amphetamines. However, did relieve tightness in chest and improved breathing. Persisted in spite of side effects - as days went on, Symbicort was seeming to help less and less. Also, the tone of my voice changed and was tremulous. Yesterday was the straw that broke the camel's back - I felt short of breath, very nervous and shaky - to the point where I considered a visit to the ER. Heart was also racing. Next day called the doc - explanation was "some people have a paradoxical reaction" (my interpretati...

Dark green and light green capsule with SA from mexico

I have a friend who is taking a capsule that she got from mexico. She says it curbs her hunger and gives her energy and focus while she is eating very little. Sounds dangerous, I'm trying to figure out what it is. The pharmacia opens the box, pops it out of the foil packs, and gives it to her to walk across the border without declaring. Any ideas what it is? Im scared it has ephedrine in it, and sometimes she drinks while on it, etc!
