Is Flovent a generic form of Symbicort?

Hello,

Symbicort is currently protected by a patent, which means that other drug companies cannot manufacture generic Symbicort until it expires. Because the active ingredient of any drug is often referred to as its "generic name," many people are under the impression that budesonide and formoterol are generic forms of Symbicort. However, these are actually the active ingredients of the drug and are not generic Symbicort.-

The first patent for Symbicort currently expires in September 2012.-

All the best and take care.-
