Expect Some Patients to Get One Inhaler to Prevent AND Relieve Asthma Attacks

Some asthma patients using Symbicort or Zenhale controller inhalers won't get a separate rescue inhaler (salbutamol, etc) anymore.

Patients who take Symbicort (budesonide/formoterol) or Zenhale (mometasone/formoterol) twice daily to prevent asthma symptoms usually also get salbutamol PRN to relieve symptoms.

Now some patients will use Symbicort or Zenhale for prevention AND as needed to quickly treat asthma attacks.
