rectal budesonide drug Information

Medication Information: Ulcerative colitis is a disease in which inflammation develops in the large intestine (colon and rectum). The most common symptom at the time of disease recurrence is diarrhea mixed with blood. Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during pregnancy and in children. If these inflammatory areas are limited to the lower parts of the intestine, it is easier to control the disease. Budesonide is a steroid (corticosteroid) drug that helps reduce inflammation. The course of treatment with budesonide lasts only a few weeks, and you should stop taking budesonide rectally after the symptoms have resolved.
