Budesonide belongs to a class of medications known as corticosteroids, which are often used for their anti-inflammatory properties. It belongs to the same class of drugs as prednisone but is generally considered to be more targeted and with fewer systemic effects when used correctly.
Budesonide is primarily used to treat respiratory conditions, most notably asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). By reducing inflammation and swelling in the airways, it helps to ease breathing difficulties associated with these conditions.
In addition to its respiratory applications, budesonide is also used to treat other conditions.
Entocort EC (budesonide) is used in the treatment of certain bowel conditions like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Here, it works similarly by reducing inflammation, but in the lining of the intestines rather than the airways.
Tarpeyo (budesonide) is used for treating nephrotic syndrome, a kidney disorder characterized by excessive protein loss in the urine (proteinuria).
Budesonide comes in many different forms depending on the specific condition it is used to treat.
For respiratory conditions such as asthma, it is available as an inhaler or nebulizer solution, allowing the medication to directly reach the lungs.
For bowel conditions, it is available as capsules taken by mouth which target the digestive tract more effectively.
The dosage and frequency of budesonide varies depending on the condition being treated and individual patient factors. It is important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions carefully and not exceed the recommended dose.
In the United States, Budesonide is available under the following brand names:
- Entocort EC
Common side effects associated with Budesonide may include:
- Dry mouth
- Feeling tired
- High blood pressure
- Back pain
- Muscle cramps
- Runny nose, sneezing, coughing
- Abdominal pain
More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:
- Symptoms of flu (signs of an infection)
- Loss of appetite
- Severe headaches
- Easy bruising
- Swelling of the legs or arms
- Swelling of the face and neck
- Difficulty breathing
The above lists of possible side effects associated with Budesonide are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking Budesonide, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.
