When budesonide is inhaled it is absorbed into the cells of the lungs and airways. Here it works by preventing the release of certain chemicals from the cells. These chemicals are important in the immune system and are normally involved in producing immune and allergic responses that result in inflammation. By decreasing the release of these chemicals in the lungs and airways, inflammation is reduced.

Common side effects (more than 1 in
100 patients):
Thrush of the mouth and throat; you can relieve
this effect by making sure to rinse your mouth out
with water after you have taken a dose. Mild throat
irritation, coughing or hoarseness.
Rare side effects (less than 1 in 1,000 patients):
The following side effects may occur rarely,
particularly after taking a high dose for a long time,
or if oral steroids are taken concomitantly (or these
steroids have been taken in the past): an effect on
the adrenal gland (a small gland next to the kidney),
slowing of growth in children and adolescents,
changes in bone density, cataract (clouding of the
lens in the eye), glaucoma (increased intraocular
pressure). These side effects are less likely to occur
as compared to use of oral steroids.
Urticaria, allergic reactions including skin rash,
dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), angioedema
(swelling of the face, lips, tongue and/or throat,
sometimes with difficulties breathing or swallowing) –
if swelling occurs, consult the physician immediately;
bronchospasm (tightening of the airway muscles);
skin bruising.
Other reported side effects:
Sleep disturbances, nervousness, restlessness,
depression, anxiety and/or becoming very irritable

BUDECORT Inhaler is indicated for the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy in adult and pediatric patients. It is also indicated for patients requiring oral corticosteroid therapy for asthma

  • What is Pulmicort?

    Pulmicort (budesonide) is a corticosteroid approved as a maintenance treatment for adult and pediatric patients with asthma. It is available as an inhaler (Budicort Turbuhaler) or Budicort Respules (capsules) for dosage via a nebulizer.
  • When should Pulmicort not be used?

    Budesonide is not prescribed to treat a sudden asthma attack. It doesn’t work quickly enough to improve breathing. Instead, a rescue medication, such as Ventolin (salbutamol - also called albuterol) or Qvar (beclomethasone), should be on hand to quickly open the airways and help breathe more easily.
  • Can you take Pulmicort every day?

    Budesonide is commonly prescribed for use every day. Regular visits to a healthcare professional are advised to ensure that the asthma is not worsening, which may dictate a change in the dose of Pulmicort depending on the condition. Women who become pregnant while using Pulmicort should tell their doctor or pharmacist.
  • How long does it take for Pulmicort to take effect?

    It can take two days to a week before any changes are noticeable. It may take up to four to six weeks of regular use before budesonide fully takes effect. If symptoms do not improve or if they get worse, report this to the prescribing doctor.
  • Does Pulmicort lower your immune system?

    There are reports that budesonide, like other corticosteroids, may weaken the immune system, and vulnerability increases with stronger doses. It’s advisable to avoid being around people who have infectious diseases such as chickenpox or measles, flu and COVID-19.
