Side Effects of Budesonide and Formoterol: Final Thoughts

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the budesonide and formoterol side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
