1. What Pulmicort Turbohaler is and what it
is used for
Pulmicort Turbohaler is an inhaler. It contains a
medicine called budesonide. This belongs to a group
of medicines called „corticosteroids‟. It works by
reducing and preventing swelling and inflammation
in your lungs.
Your doctor has prescribed this medicine to treat
asthma. Your doctor will prescribe two asthma
inhalers: Pulmicort Turbohaler and a separate
„reliever inhaler‟.

Use Pulmicort Turbohaler every day, as your
doctor has told you to. This helps to prevent
asthma symptoms from happening.

Use your „reliever inhaler‟ when you get asthma
symptoms, to make it easier to breathe again.

2. Before you use Pulmicort Turbohaler
Do not use Pulmicort Turbohaler if:

You are allergic (hypersensitive) to budesonide

or pharmacist if:

You have a lung infection.

You have a cold or chest infection or any
problems with your breathing.

You have or have ever had tuberculosis (TB).

You have liver problems.
Taking other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are
taking or have recently taken any other medicines.
This includes medicines that you buy without a
prescription and herbal medicines. This is because
Pulmicort Turbohaler can affect the way some
medicines work and some medicines can have an
effect on Pulmicort Turbohaler.
In particular, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are
taking any of the following medicines:

Steroid medicines.

Medicines to treat fungal infections (such as
itraconazole and ketoconazole).

HIV protease inhibitors (such as ritonavir and
nelfinavir).
Pregnancy and breast-feeding

talk to your doctor before using Pulmicort - do
not use Pulmicort Turbohaler unless your doctor
tells you to.

If you get pregnant while using Pulmicort
Turbohaler, do not stop using Pulmicort
Turbohaler but talk to your doctor immediately.

If you are breast-feeding, talk to your doctor
before using Pulmicort Turbohaler.

Important information about your asthma
symptoms
If you feel you are getting breathless or wheezy
while using Pulmicort Turbohaler, you should
continue to use Pulmicort Turbohaler but go to see
your doctor as soon as possible, as you may need
additional treatment.
Contact your doctor immediately if:
 Your breathing is getting worse or you often wake
up at night with asthma.
 Your chest starts to feel tight in the morning or
your chest tightness lasts longer than usual.
These signs could mean that your condition is not
being properly controlled and you may need different
or additional treatment immediately.
Use your Pulmicort Turbohaler every day. This
helps to prevent asthma symptoms from happening.
Your doctor will advise you of the correct dose to
treat your asthma. Your doctor will reduce your
medication to the lowest dose needed to control your
asthma.
If your doctor has told you to use your
Turbohaler twice a day:
Adults and children (13 years and above)
 The usual dose is 1 or 2 inhalations, twice a day
(in the morning and in the evening).
 Your doctor may increase this to a maximum of
1600 micrograms a day.
 If your asthma is getting worse and you are using
your „reliever inhaler‟ more often or you have more
symptoms:
- double your dose of Pulmicort Turbohaler
immediately and talk to your doctor as soon as
possible
- double your dose by taking twice as many
inhalations each time.
Children (5 - 12 years of age)
 The usual dose is 1 or 2 inhalations, twice a day
(in the morning and in the evening).
 The doctor may increase this to a maximum of 800
micrograms a day.
If your doctor has told you to use your
Turbohaler once a day:
 Only use your Turbohaler once a day if your doctor
has told you to.
 Use your Turbohaler at the same time each
evening.
Adults and children (13 years and above)
 The usual dose is 1 or 2 inhalations, in the
evening.
 If your asthma is getting worse and you are using
your „reliever inhaler‟ more often or you have more
symptoms:
- double your dose immediately and talk to your
doctor as soon as possible
- double your dose by taking the same number of
inhalations your doctor has told you twice a day
(once in the morning and once in the evening).
Children (5 - 12 years of age)
 The usual dose is 1 or 2 inhalations, in the
evening.
 The maximum dose is 400 micrograms a day.
Use your separate ‘reliever inhaler’ to treat
asthma symptoms when they happen. Always
keep your „reliever inhaler‟ with you to use when you
need it. Do not use Pulmicort Turbohaler to treat
asthma symptoms - use your „reliever inhaler‟.

Driving and using machines
Pulmicort Turbohaler is not likely to affect you being
able to drive or use any tools or machines.

How to prepare a new Turbohaler for use
Before using Pulmicort Turbohaler for the first time
you need to prepare the Turbohaler for use. .

Information you may have to carry while you are
using Pulmicort Turbohaler
If you are using a high dose of Pulmicort Turbohaler
your doctor may ask you to carry a steroid warning
card. This explains to others about your medication.

Unscrew the white cover and lift it off.

Hold your Turbohaler upright with
brown base at the bottom. Do not
hold the mouthpiece when you turn
the grip. Turn the brown base as
far as it will go in one direction.
Then turn it back as far as it will
go in the other direction. It does not
matter which way you turn first. You should hear a
click sound.
The Turbohaler is now ready for use, and you
should not repeat the above procedure again. To
take a dose, please follow the instructions below.
How to take an inhalation
Every time you need to take an inhalation, follow the
instructions below:
1. Unscrew the white cover and lift it off.
2. Hold your Turbohaler upright with the brown
base at the bottom.
3. Do not hold the mouthpiece when you load your
Turbohaler. To load your Turbohaler with a dose,
turn the brown base as far as it will go in one
direction. Then turn it as far as it will go in the
other direction. It does not matter which way you
turn it first. You should hear a click sound. Your
Turbohaler is now loaded and ready to use. Only
load your Turbohaler when you need to use it.
4.Hold your Turbohaler away from your mouth.
Breathe out gently (as far as is comfortable).
Do not breathe out through your Turbohaler.
5. Place the mouthpiece gently
between your teeth. Close your lips.
Breathe in as deeply and as hard
as you can through your mouth.
Do not chew or bite on the
mouthpiece.
6. Remove your Turbohaler from your mouth.
Then breathe out gently. The amount of medicine
that is inhaled is very small. This means you may
not be able to taste it after inhalation. If you have
followed the instructions, you can still be confident
that you have inhaled the dose and the medicine is
now in your lungs.
7. If you are to take a second
inhalation, repeat steps 2 to 6.
8. Replace the cover by screwing
it back on tightly after use.
9. Rinse your mouth out with water after inhaling
your prescribed dose.
Do not try to remove or twist the mouthpiece. It is
fixed to your Turbohaler and must not be taken off.
Do not use your Turbohaler if it has been damaged
or if the mouthpiece has come apart from your
Turbohaler.
Cleaning your Turbohaler
Wipe the outside of the mouthpiece once a week
with a dry tissue. Do not use water or liquids.
When to start using a new Turbohaler
When you first see a red mark in
the indicator window, there are
about 20 doses left. You will then
need to see your doctor
for another prescription.
When the red mark has reached
the bottom of the indicator window,
you must start using your new Turbohaler.
Note:
 The brown base will still twist and „click‟ even when
your Turbohaler is empty.
 The sound that you hear as you shake your
Turbohaler is produced by a drying agent and not
the medicine. Therefore the sound does not tell
you how much medicine is left in your Turbohaler.
 If you load your Turbohaler more than once by
mistake before taking your dose, you will still only
receive one dose.
If you use more Pulmicort Turbohaler than you
should
It is important that you take your dose as stated on
the pharmacist‟s label or as advised by your doctor.
You should not increase or decrease your dose
without seeking medical advice. If you use more
Pulmicort Turbohaler than you should, contact your
doctor or pharmacist for advice.
If you forget to use Pulmicort Turbohaler
If you forget to take a dose, skip the missed dose
and take the next dose as usual.
If you stop using Pulmicort Turbohaler
Do not stop using this medicine even when your
asthma gets better, unless your doctor tells you to.

4. Possible side effects
Like all medicines, Pulmicort Turbohaler can cause
side effects, although not everybody gets them.

If either of the following happen to you, stop
using Pulmicort Turbohaler and talk to your
doctor immediately:
 Swelling of your face, particularly around your
mouth (with possible swelling of the lips, tongue,
eyes and ears), rash, itching, contact dermatitis (a
skin problem), hives and bronchospasm
(tightening of the muscles in the airways which
causes wheezing). This may mean that you are
having an allergic reaction. This happens rarely,
affecting less than 1 in 1,000 people.
 Sudden wheezing after inhaling your medicine. If
this happens, also use your „reliever‟ inhaler
straight away. This happens very rarely, affecting
less than 1 in 10,000 people.
Other possible side effects:
Common (affects less than 1 in 10 people)
 Thrush (a fungal infection) in the mouth. This is
less likely if you rinse your mouth out with water
after using your Turbohaler.
 Mild sore throat, coughing and a hoarse voice.
Rare (affects less than 1 in 1,000 people)
 Sleeping problems, depression or feeling worried,
restless, nervous, over-excited or irritable. These
effects are more likely to occur in children.
 Bruising of the skin.
 Loss of voice.
 Hoarse voice (in children).
Inhaled corticosteroids can affect the normal
production of steroid hormones in your body,
particularly if you use high doses for a long time. The
effects include:
 cataract (clouding of the lens in the eye).
 glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye).
 a slowing of the rate of growth of children and
adolescents (rare).
 an effect on the adrenal gland (a small gland next
to the kidney) (rare).
These effects are much less likely to happen with
inhaled corticosteroids than with corticosteroid
tablets.
If any of the side effects get serious or if you notice
any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell
your doctor or pharmacist.

5. How to store Pulmicort Turbohaler
 Keep out of the sight and reach of children.
