Budecort 400 Rotacap is used to prevent the symptoms of asthma (wheezing and shortness of breath). It is a steroid and is known as a “preventer”. You need to have a fast-acting “reliever” as well because this medicine will not stop an asthma attack that has already started.
Your doctor will tell you how often you need to use Budecort 400 Rotacap. It is important that you take the lowest dose needed to effectively control your asthma. The effect of this medicine may be noticeable after a few days but will only reach its maximum after a few weeks. This medicine must be used regularly to be effective, so go on taking it even if you do not have any symptoms. No symptoms mean that the medicine is doing its job. If you stop taking it your asthma may get worse. It should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler “reliever”. To get the benefit from this medicine you need to make sure you get your inhaler technique right, otherwise, it will not work as well.
