Trying to find an inhaler that works. Symbicort effected me the worst. After only 6 2 puff inhales. I stopped and can't wait for any damage I received and pain to go away.
How long after you stop taking Symbicort do the side effects go away?

Symbicort contains Budesonide and Formoterol.
Budesonide is an inhaled corticosteroid medicine that helps decrease inflammation in the lungs that can lead to asthma symptoms. Formoterol is a type of medicine that is used in patients with asthma. It helps the muscles around the airways in your lungs stay relaxed to prevent asthma symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath.
Following administration of SYMBICORT, the half-life of the budesonide component was 4.7 hours and for the formoterol component, was 7.9 hours. Clinically, after 4 half-lives, the amount of drug (6.25%) in the body is considered to be negligible in terms of its effects.
Therefore, the side-effect is expected to disappear between 18.8hours (if it's caused by the budesonide component) to 31.6hours (if it's caused by the formoterol component).
