Hi, I'm currently studying for the asthma diploma via educaton for health's elearning course. I've been reading (both education for healths coursework, and BNF) about symbicort and I've become confused as to its contents.
Both the BNF and education for health agree that it contains Formeterol as oxis 6 or oxis 12 and beclometasone 100, 200 or 400mcg.
They both agree that it comes as 100/6, 200/6 and 400/12.
Whilst the BNF states that oxis 6 is 4.5mcg and oxis 12 is 9mcg my coursework states that oxis 6 contains 6mcg of formeterol and oxis 12, 12mcg.
Which one is correct, or am I missing the point somewhere?
