How it works
Ciclesonide inhibits the release of certain substances in the body that cause inflammation (swelling, redness, pain, etc.). Formoterol relaxes and opens the blocked air passages leading to the lungs; This improves the amount of airflow to the lungs and makes breathing easier. Thus, their combination is better effective for the treatment of asthma.
