Budesonide ER Drug Information

Ulcerative colitis can often be successfully managed through treatment with budesonide ER (Uceris™). As a corticosteroid, it works by decreasing the inflammation associated with ulcerative colitis. However, unlike many other steroids, it does not carry the same risk of side effects, which are often quite serious. This drug comes as a tablet that is usually taken once a day in the morning for up to eight weeks.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with budesonide ER, inform your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other medicines you are taking. In addition, you need to avoid grapefruit juice and other grapefruit products during treatment, as they interact negatively with the medication.
