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?

      I hear good things about the Mesalamine suppositories. Fair warning, Budesonide is expensive ($400!) but my Medicaid paid for mine.

      I LOVED Budesonide when I took it. I think it helped much faster and better than prednisone. Have you gotten it yet?

      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
