What is budesonide?
Budesonide is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

Budesonide is used to treat mild to moderate Crohn's disease.

Budesonide may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about budesonide?
While taking budesonide, tell your doctor if you have changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your arms, legs, face, neck, breasts, and waist), high blood pressure, (severe headache, fast or uneven heart rate, blurred vision), or a general ill feeling with headache, tiredness, nausea, and vomiting.

Grapefruit and grapefruit juice may interact with budesonide and cause increased levels of the medication in your blood. Discuss the use of grapefruit products with your doctor.

Do not increase or decrease the amount of grapefruit products in your diet without first talking to your doctor.

Avoid being near people who are sick or have infections. Call your doctor for preventive treatment if you are exposed to chicken pox or measles. These conditions can be serious or even fatal in people who are using budesonide.
