    Expert advice for Budesonide

    • Budesonide ‘dampens down’ inflammation in the lungs to provide long-term (maintenance) treatment of asthma and prevent disease progression.
    • Budesonide will not work for an ongoing asthma attack. Use your rescue inhaler to control sudden difficulty in breathing.
    • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
    • Take it at the same time every day to prevent asthma attacks.
    • Never breathe out into the mouthpiece.
    • Only minuscule amounts of Budesonide may get absorbed into the bloodstream after inhalation. Hence, serious side effects such or weight gain are unlikely.
