How to buy Pulmicort online?

Pulmicort is a preventer inhaler in the form of a turbohaler available in 100mcg, 200mcg and 400mcg dosages that you can buy straight from OnlineClinic. Pulmicort is a preventer treatment so daily use is required to reap long-term benefits with this turbohaler proven to help alleviate symptoms of asthma and preventing the likelihood of an attack in the long run. As the dosages vary significantly, Pulmicort is versatile in helping many asthmatics, however mild or severe symptoms may be.

It's always advised to check the expiry date of your inhaler and keep a healthy supply so you can continue with the prevention. It can be frustrating heading to the doctor's every time you need a prescription, especially if you don't have time, so you can get your recommended dosage online with OnlineClinic by completing a quick consultation.

What is Pulmicort?

Pulmicort is an inhaler in the form of a turbohaler, which works in the same way as Aerosols and Autohalers in terms of reducing inflammation, but it is slightly different to ingest. Using Pulmicort is no more difficult than usual inhalers and is detailed below. In fact, one benefit other than the highly effective formula is that this powdered version is easy to ingest. Pulmicort is a preventer treatment used frequently regardless of your current scenario to thwart asthmatic symptoms; therefore it shouldn't be used in the event of an attack, but on a daily basis (usually once in the morning and evening).

This turbohaler can be used reliever inhalers such as Ventolin as well and is generally prescribed to those with severe asthma or continuous breathing difficulties.

Short facts about Pulmicort
How to use

Pulmicort is inhaled through a tube at the bottom of the turbohaler. Remove the cap and breath in fully. Try to hold your breath for 10 seconds. For most users, you take two puffs twice a day (morning and evening).

How it works

Pulmicort contains the synthetic corticosteroid, budesonide. This works by inhaled directly through the throat and lungs to minimise inflammation and symptoms of asthma such as wheeziness and coughing.


As Pulmicort is available in three dosages, many users find this turbohaler effective as it's tailored to their level of asthma. Pulmicort is best suited to those with mild to severe asthma.


The dosage available to buy online at OnlineClinic are 100mcg, 200mcg and 400mcg. The dose you require is recommended through your consultation with a medical professional.

Side effects

Side effects of Pulmicort are particularly rare, especially if the dosage is right for you. If you are experiencing side effects they tend to be either oral thrush or a sore throat, as inhalers are ingested directly.

How does Pulmicort work?

Whilst the way Pulmicort is taken varies slightly from a traditional aerosol style inhaler, the process in how it works is the same as any other asthmatic device, by using a synthetic version of corticosteroid that works by reducing any irritation and inflammation caused by asthma. In Pulmicort, this active ingredient is budesonide and is used for moderate to severe inflammation.

Pulmicort should be used continually over a long period of time to reduce wheeziness, breathlessness and hoarseness in the lungs and throat.

How to use Pulmicort?

The typical dosage requirement of Pulmicort is to be taken twice daily, however this can differ with each individual. You will also be recommended the ideal dose, whether that's 100mcg, 200mcg or 400mcg, and the patient leaflet is attached at the right of this page for more information.

  • Remove the cap and place in your mouth
  • Sit up straight or stand for maximum effectiveness
  • Exhale fully and place the nozzle into your mouth
  • Inhale fully and try to hold your breath for 10 seconds
  • Place the cap back on the inhaler

Two puffs taken twice a day (morning and evening) unless instructed otherwise by a medical professional.


At OnlineClinic, Pulmicort is available in three dosages; 100mcg, 200mcg and 400mcg. What dose you need will depend on the severity of your symptoms and is advised by a medical professional. The usual quantity is around four times a day (two puffs in the morning and two in the evening) so for 100mcg, you will be taking 400mcg per day.

Side effects and precautions

Side effects are rare with Pulmicort but can include oral thrush and/or a sore throat. You can have some water a couple of minutes after using Pulmicort that may reduce these chances further.

It is also worth mentioning any precautions associated with Pulmicort turbohaler, which should be considered before buying the medication. If you are /have:

  • Taking mifepristone
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Any liver issues
  • Tuberculosis
  • A chest infection or cold
  • A history of chest infections

If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in Pulmicort, you can be advised other inhalers you can buy for mild to severe asthmatic symptoms.

Note: Decisions about treatment are for both the prescriber and the person to jointly consider during the consultation. However, the final decision will always be the prescriber’s.
