Inhaler combining albuterol, budesonide may stop asthma attacks

A recent scientific experiment has discovered that two medications are superior to one when it comes to halting asthma episodes in progress.

The research of almost 3,100 asthma patients discovered that a two-drug "rescue" inhaler functioned better

than a normal inhaler in preventing severe asthma exacerbations, allowing some patients to avoid hospitalization.

The unapproved inhaler comprises two long-used asthma medications: albuterol and budesonide.

Budesonide is a corticosteroid that regulates the airway inflammation that causes asthma.

To prevent bouts of wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath, patients with the illness often take a daily inhaler containing a corticosteroid (one brand is Pulmicort).
