Introduction

Budesonide is a synthetic corticosteroid having potent glucocorticoid activity and weak mineralocorticoid activity. It has approximately a 200-fold higher affinity for the glucocorticoid receptor and a 1000-fold higher topical anti-inflammatory potency than cortisol. Corticosteroids have been shown to have a wide range of inhibitory activities against multiple cell types (e.g., mast cell, eosinophil, neutrophil, macrophage, and lymphocyte) and mediators (e.g., histamine, eicosanoids, leukotriene, and cytokine) involved in allergic mediated inflammation.

Aeronid (HFA) Precaution

● Since budesonide is a glucocorticoid, general warnings concerning glucocorticoids should be followed.

● Risk of impaired adrenal function when transferring from glucocorticoid treatment with higher systemiceffects to glucocorticoid treatment with lower systemic effects, such as budesonide. Taper patients slowly fromsystemic corticosteroids if transferring to budesonide.

● Potential worsening of infections (e.g., chickenpox, measles, existing tuberculosis, fungal, bacterial, viral, orparasitic infection). Use with caution in patients with these infections.

● Reduced liver function affects the elimination of glucocorticoid, and increases systemic availability of oralbudesonide.

Interaction

Avoid Cytochrome P450 3A4 inhibitors (e.g. ketoconazole, grapefruit juice). It may cause increased systemic corticosteroid effects. Budesonide does not affect the plasma levels of oral contraceptives.
