What is Budesonide?

Entocort (Budesonide) is a steroid which reduces inflammation and swelling within your digestive tract. Budesonide is used to treat mild to moderate Crohn’s disease which is an inflammatory bowel disease involving the body attacking the digestive tract lining causing pain, diarrhea, weight loss and fever. Budesonide may also be prescribed to treat other bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis.

How does Budesonide work?

Budesonide reduces inflammation, swelling, pain, diarrhea and other symptoms of Crohn’s disease inside the intestines and bowels and works by decreasing the body’s natural defense or immune response. Budesonide does not cure these conditions but does decrease the symptoms of bowel diseases.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Entocort is an oral medication which should be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. It can be taken with or without food.

  • Budesonide is typically prescribed to be taken in the morning and is most effective when taken regularly.
  • Do not stop taking this medication without consulting with your doctor.
