Uses

Budesonide Compounded Capsules when given orally is typically used to treat inflammatory intestinal diseases, like chronic inflammatory enteropathies (or inflammatory bowel disease). As always, it is best to consult your veterinarian for proper diagnosis and uses.

Adverse Effects

Budesonide has been shown to cause HPA axis suppression in dogs when using the commercial formulation as well as compounded budesonide powder. Some studies have suggested that budesonide tends to cause less severe adverse effects as compared to prednisone, but findings have not been statistically significant. Budesonide is locally active in the FI tract, and as such, local adverse effects in the GI tract need to be considered.

Drug & Food Interactions

Aspirin: may cause increased risk of GI ulceration Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs): may cause increased risk of GI ulceration Oral Antacids: It is best to separate budesonide from oral antacids by at least 2 hours due to pH dependency of the dissolution of the drug. Azole antifungals (fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole): concomitant use can increase the budesonide absorption and distribution through an hepatic enzyme inhibition.

Budesonide is contraindicated in patients that are hypersensitive to it. Due to potential systemic corticosteroid effects, it should be used with caution in patients where glucocorticoid therapy is problematic. Reduced dosages may be required in those patients with impaired hepatic function. As always, please consult your veterinarian with any questions or concerns regarding any precautions, contraindications, or side effects.

FAQ

What is compounding?

Compounding is a method of preparing individualized prescription medications by licensed pharmacists. Compounding allows the practitioner, the pharmacist, and the pet owner to collaborate to create custom dosages, flavors, and dosage forms for pets to easily, safely, and effectively take their medication. Often pet owners struggle to give oral tablets which is why ExpressVet offers compounded oral liquids, transdermal gels, capsules, and treats to make taking care of your pet easy.
