Budesonide for Allergies
Budesonide is a prescription medication used to treat a variety of conditions, ranging from asthma to allergies to Crohn's disease. It comes in several different forms, including:
- Budesonide inhalation (Pulmicort®), for asthma treatment
- Budesonide nasal spray (Rhinocort Aqua®), for allergy treatment
- Budesonide capsules (Entocort EC®), for Crohn's disease treatment.
Budesonide nasal spray is a particularly useful medicine for treating allergy symptoms that primarily affect the nose, such as nasal congestion, sneezing, and runny nose. It can be used to treat both seasonal allergies and perennial (year-round) allergies. This medication is approved for use in adults and children who are at least six years old.
