Drug Description


This medication is indicated for the treatment of a specific gastrointestinal disorder known as Crohn’s disease. Although budesonide does not possess curative properties for this condition, it exhibits the potential to mitigate symptoms including pain and diarrhea. Budesonide, classified as an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid hormone, exerts its therapeutic effect by modulating the body’s immune response, thereby reducing the intensity of the natural defense mechanisms. 

Uses and Dosage 

Administer this medication orally as prescribed by your healthcare provider, either with or without food. take once daily in the morning. Swallow the medication whole with a generous amount of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters), unless specifically instructed otherwise by your doctor.refrain from crushing or chewing the capsules, as doing so may lead to a rapid release of the entire drug content, thereby increasing the likelihood of experiencing adverse effects. 

In the event that you encounter difficulty swallowing the capsules intact, certain brands may allow for opening the capsules and sprinkling the contents onto a tablespoonful of soft, cool applesauce in a clean container. Thoroughly stir the mixture and consume the entire dose without chewing. Follow it with a full glass of cool water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) to ensure complete ingestion of the prescribed dosage. take the entire mixture within 30 minutes of its preparation and avoid storing it for future use. Should you have any inquiries regarding your specific brand, kindly consult your pharmacist for further clarification.
