About BUDECORT 200MCG INHALER

BUDECORT 200MCG INHALER belongs to the class of medicine called 'corticosteroids' used to reduce inflammation in various conditions, including respiratory diseases like asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder). An allergic condition is an immune system response to a foreign substance (allergens) that is not typically harmful to your body which includes certain foods, pollen, or pet dander.

BUDECORT 200MCG INHALER contains ‘Budesonide’ that works by blocking various chemical messengers that are involved in allergic- and non-allergic-mediated inflammation. BUDECORT 200MCG INHALER decreases inflammation and irritation in the airways and making it easier to breathe. It treats various respiratory disease conditions including allergic rhinitis (allergy symptoms with itchy/watery eyes and stuffy nose), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (lung disease), asthma chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing caused by asthma. 

BUDECORT 200MCG INHALER is available in the form of oral extended (delayed) release tablets and capsules, suspension solution and powder for oral inhalation, over the counter spray for nasal application, and foam, enema, and suppositories for rectal administration. Some may experience common side effects like soreness and/or irritation in the mouth (including oral thrush), a mild sore throat, coughing or a hoarse voice, pneumonia (infection of the lung) in COPD patients. These side effects generally do not require medical attention and may go away during treatment.

Also, inform your doctor if you have any bacteria, virus, or fungal infections in your mouth, airways, or lungs.
