I used to take prednisone for flares but now don’t respond well due to side effects. Has anyone taken budesonide for flare ups? How has it helped?
Ulcerative Colitis (IBD) Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Hi! I’ve never taken budesonide, however, this is a good article regarding its use for UC and its adverse effects https://www.cochrane.org/CD007698/IBD_oral-budesonide-treatment-people-active-ulcerative-colitis
I LOVED Budesonide when I took it. I think it helped much faster and better than prednisone. Have you gotten it yet?
They want me to try mesalamine suppositories first
I hear good things about the Mesalamine suppositories.
Fair warning, Budesonide is expensive ($400!) but my Medicaid paid for mine.
