Information about Rotacap. Foracort-400

FORACORT Rotacaps are a combination of budesonide, a potent glucocorticoid, and formoterol fumarate, a selective, long-acting beta2-agonist.

Budesonide is a potent glucocorticoid that binds with high affinity to the glucocorticoid receptor which works by stopping the release of certain chemical messengers that cause inflammation (swelling) of the airways.

Formoterol is a very potent, long-acting, beta2 adrenoceptor-agonist with a high intrinsic activity and a rapid onset of action which works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens the airways.


Formoterol (6mcg) + Budesonide (400mcg)


FORACORT Rotacaps are indicated in the regular treatment of asthma, where the use of a combination (long-acting, beta2-agonist and inhaled corticosteroid) has been found to be appropriate. It is also indicated in the symptomatic treatment of severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), with a history of repeated exacerbations despite regular therapy with long-acting bronchodilators.
