Uses And Benefits
Asthma patients use an inhaled form of budesonide daily. It helps reduce the number of asthma attacks and the severity of the attacks. This medication may be taken in combination with bronchodilators or other asthma medicines to make breathing easier. Although it helps reduce the number and severity of asthma attacks, this drug is not a rescue medication. This means that it will not stop an asthma attack that has already started.
This medication may also be considered as a treatment for mild to moderate Crohn's disease. It reduces inflammation in the digestive tract, and it helps improve symptom control. In addition, certain brands of this medication treat adults with mild to moderate ulcerative colitis.
