Dear Annessa
I don't think there is a generic of Symbicort - and it is well worth the money spent - you won't get the same effect if you use the cortisone and a beta stimulant apart. Symbicort is also longer acting than the normal beta stimulants. Air purifiers will only work if you can use it in a closed room when dust and pollen levels are high outside.
