You would need to discuss this with your doctor. They are used to treat similar conditions but work in slightly different ways.

Symbicort contains a combination of budesonide and formoterol. Budesonide is a steroid that reduces inflammation in the body. Formoterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways to improve breathing.

Combivent contains a combination of albuterol and ipratropium. Albuterol and ipratropium are bronchodilators that work in different ways to relax muscles in the airways and increase air flow to the lungs.
