Symbicort contains a steroid that can cause oral thrush, if the steroid is left in the mouth for a while. So it is best to wash out your mouth with water to cleanse out the steroid.

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.
