How does budesonide work

Common Questions and Answers about How does budesonide work


Avatar f tn Does the dr. give you Budesonide when your having a flare up or do you take it like Asacol on a regular basis to control Crohn's? I'm so afraid to take prednisone again, I didn't like how I had so many side effect with it. I have been hearing a lot about Methotextrate (thats what you meant by mtx, right?) All the things I have heard are good. Q: Do you take mtx on a reg. basis? From what it sounds like you do but just checking. Q: Do you have any side effects from mtx?
5247698 tn?1374543860 I am scared of letting my doc know because I don`t want to be taken off the program after all this work. She knows that I`m having trouble but not the severity. Please, if you can, tell me something encouraging or offer advise. Thanks - this board is great.
Avatar f tn I have seen a docter 3 times already but because of a lack of language ( understanding ) they can't tell me what's wrong and their medicine doesn't work either. I am coughing intensly and my chest is almost always hurting. It starts with a pricking sensation in my throat and then the coughing starts. It is so intense that I sometimes throw up because of it. Cough syrup has little effect. They gave me the following drugs: Benzonatate cap/ Bensau 100mg/cap.
Avatar f tn after reading the budesonide thread, i found that they are the same med.. and that it does not work on upper large colon so since he says the crohns has affected both large and small it seems like a waste to take this med anyway. i started taking acidophilus (spchk) and eating soft food only. hopefully this makes a change for the better so i dont ahve to get on the horsepills. thanks for responding.

Avatar m tn If you got your doctors notes does it include your lab work? CRP, sed rate, ESR... Any of them not in the normal range? I've heard of IBS turning out to be Crohns or Crohns and UC being switched, but never bring "down-graded". I have IBS on top of my Crohns which is possible. Honestly, I'd take all those records and get a new GI doctor or at least a second opinion. Also, have you been checked for celiac disease?
Avatar n tn I'm very interested in going to Canada to get this drug and see if it does work in preventing the outbreak of my internal allergic reactions caused by eosinophilic gastroenteritis. However, I forgot the name of the drug and what would I have to do (besides go to Canada) to get the drug? Please help!!!!!! Dear John, I believe you are referring to a steroid medication such as budesonide that is completely metabolized on first pass through the liver. This decreases the possibility of side effects.
20817736 tn?1521541318 My viral tests came back days later and were all negative except for EBV which showed -+++; which does not rule out re-infection. I had seen my primary care physician one month prior on 12/22 at which time my lab work showed normal LFTs (all past tests revealed no liver problems or abnormal LFTs), and was prescribed Cipro (which has been linked to DILI {Drug Induced Liver Injury} for suspected bronchitis.
Avatar n tn Is it OK to refuse treatment with Budesonide, because I work with close contact with infectious patients? Should I seek treatment for the vaginal ulcer with the GI or Gyne since I know it might be related to Crohns. I am Asian. No family history whatsoever. I don't drink alcohol, but I smoke. My past medical history includes Dengue Fever with platelet transfusion and 3 childbirths. Chronic constipation is my only significant past medical history.
Avatar n tn She would like to know any side effects that others have experienced taking this medication. Does anyone have any thoughts as to how long she might be on the Prednisone medication? Her ast level was 451, alt level was 471, as of April 16th. She just started the prednisone. She's been on it for 2 days. Any comments or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar f tn If you haven't been seen by a pulmonologist, you may benefit by seeing one - they would be better able to decipher if you do have asthma and how best to treat it. To me, it does sound like you're having asthma attacks. It also sounds to me like your attacks are definitely allergy related, so getting your allergies under good control would probably make a big difference in your breathing issues. Have you ever seen an allergist?
Avatar n tn If it is Chronic and on-going how long till emphysema (Now non smoker with a good excersize regime + balanced diet) Why does Sybicort 200(Formoterol and Budesonide)make me feel tight chested unable to breathe and Symbicort 100 makes me a little better but not 100%, should I be on something else? Do you feel the Bueytko method is an option I'm worried...its a lonley station!!
Avatar f tn ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ My 12+ year old Siberian Husky is sick. Is there some virus or some other health problems that my Veterinarian and I haven't thought of? One evening, my dog's stomach started gurgling so loud you could hear it from one end of the house to the other. And it went on for like an hour. It was crazy.
Avatar f tn I currently keep my Crohn's under control with weekly injections of 25 mg methotrexate, daily folic acid and 5 mg daily of the steroid Budesonide, which does not have the serious side effects of prednisolone as it is only metabolised in the small intestine, not the liver. My own experience has been with numerous gastroenterologists as I have moved around a lot with my and my husband's careers, and have never been advised to consult a "holistic" doctor.
Avatar m tn I've visited my doctor who checked me and found that my heart sounded healthy and my lungs are clear (save for my history of asthma), though she noted I am overweight by approximately 17-20 pounds (adding to my apnea) and I had developed nasal polyps (large enough that breathing through my nose is very difficult. I was prescribed budesonide and montelukast for asthma maintenance, mometasone for my polyps, and ventolin for emergency.
Avatar n tn , but the advice my doctors have always given me (and at one time I was being treated by the European specialist in Crohn's - since decamped to New Zealand, but I have an exceptional one now -youngish, early 40's who is passionate about IBD and does his research) - is that diet alone, no matter how healthy, (probiotic, macrobiotic etc.) will not keep the disease in remission, if indeed your son has the intractable kind I have.
Avatar n tn At that time her x-rays were completely clear. She has been getting worse. Yesterday her blood work came back from Monday and everything was fine. After the x-rays the vet did a CBC to check for infection and a high white blood cell count. She said she saw 3 small suspicious areas on the x-rays too in her chest but not in her lungs. Her heart is also normal. She is on the Methamazole cream that goes on her ears twice a day...alternating ears for hyperthyroidism.
173119 tn?1297003336 How are you and your daughter **** now? My best friend is suffering from what I suspect to be chromes disease, she is in much pain and lived in KY where she got terrible care and diagnosis changed every time she say a different doctor. Her brother died, my best friend, 2 years ago from a massive heart attack, but the year before that he had become emaciated and had much problems in the toilet area.
1394098 tn?1385963734 About the same time she got diarrhea. She doesn't go often but when she does, it's completely liquid. The only thing that the vet saw in her tests was elevated white cells. She didn't have any parasites. So over time, we ended up going through 3 different antibiotics and 2 rounds of prednisone. I have also tried some natural online products. Nothing has helped. She is down to about 5 lbs from her normal 8 lbs.
Avatar f tn She is taking a drug call Budesonide right now for IBD. It keeps her eating without her getting sick and throwing up. She also does not seem to need her inhaler as much. Your cat may just need to take the Pren for a little while longer until the inflammation clears up completely. I tried cutting my cat back and she lost weight and threw up--so she has to stay on the original prescription or she will do exactly what yours is doing.
3177469 tn?1344457868 Sorry, I wasn't sure how much you knew. I hope the few days you took the Incivek do not matter. Boceprevir has its share of sides but from what I have learned here on the forum they are not the same sides as the Incivek. At least not with the nausea & the fat requirement. I do not think you will react the same. It is good you have the Procrit lined up.
Avatar f tn Hi, How is your brother? Does he have history of allergies? Sinus Headaches may present with gnawing pain over nasal area, often increasing in severity throughout day. This can be due to an acute infection, usually with blockage of sinus ducts that prevent normal drainage ( hence, pressure). Migraine and cluster headaches are often misdiagnosed as sinus in origin. Further evaluation may be done to rule out infection, nasal polyps, anatomical deformities, such as a deviated septum.
1560663 tn?1298050127 I don't know how it works on a dog but if your vet says no ask another vet. I don't know what dose you would give a dog but I'm sure it would be fine for them if it's ok for a cat. I just don't know for sure about giving it to a dog. It has been a life saver, literally. If I miss giving it to him even once his stool will begin to harden and they are huge. I can't imagine passing a stool as big as he has had to so don't miss a dose.
Avatar f tn I believe many Bengals have a senstivive to fish, the pet store I work at has had a couple of litters that all were senstitive. Since she was fine on chicken and turkey, stay with food that doesn't have anything else. natural balance ultra has duck, turkey, chicken, and salmon in it. However, because of the blood I would also vet check and do blood tests if necessary to check for other things.
Avatar n tn What does the lotion "Lubriderm" contain that would cause an allergic reaction- redness swelling of hands & face- even palms? I am confident that this was from the Lubriderm as I wiped off an excess of the lotion on the side of my cheek and my cheek was red and swelling. My hands were worse as I had applied double the lotion when I started to itch -I thought it dryness due to the cold.
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics. Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING!
Avatar m tn Some people say it does help, might as well try it, maybe you'll be one of the ones it does work on, but i wasn't so lucky. What is Budesonide? I haven't tried that one yet. I can totally relate to you. I am going in next week for a ct scan of my throat, I've had tons of other tests done and they can't find anything but reflux. None of the meds for that has worked. Just curious, do you have a dog or cat?
Avatar f tn htm My one cat was found to have this during recent xrays but he's alot younger and its only just started, apparantly is a very painful condition when it becomes worse...hope its not the case, just a suggestion. let us know how Mitzi does ok....
Avatar m tn You need to follow a gluten free diet for 2 months to see if that works. If you need advice on how to do this then we can give you hints. It really sounds like celiac disease to me so you need to try this. It is hard but a lot of us have done this and it can be done.
902019 tn?1249865014 Well they just called, and it's AIP. My IGg4 was slightly elevated, and I couldn't understand what the biopsy revealed something with lympho*something or other* that had to do with my white blood cells. It's not cancer, so that's a relief!haha They are starting me on steriods, low dose, will pick up the script tomorrow.
