    What is Uceris used for?

    Uceris or Budesonide is a type of corticosteroid. It is usually in the form of an extended-release tablet and treats Crohn’s disease symptoms. As long as this inflammatory disease of the bowel is mild to moderate, Uceris works effectively. Its role is to reduce inflammation in the small and large intestines. Available in different forms, Budesonide should be prescribed by a doctor to ensure that it helps you. It may also be suggested for conditions other than Crohn’s disease. If your doctor prescribes it for Crohn’s disease, take it without missing. Don’t stop therapy without telling them.

    How is Uceris dosage taken?

    The recommended dosage when treating a Crohn’s disease is 9mg one time per day. This tablet is taken orally before food in the morning. It will normally be stopped after eight weeks and by then it will have improved your symptoms. Swallow the extended-release tablet whole with a full glass of water; don’t split, chew or crush your medicine before swallowing. Even if you like drinking grapefruit juice or eating the fruit itself, avoid this during treatment. It is thought to increase the quantity of Uceris that is left in the body and this raises your odds of having side effects.

    Some people will be given a different dose than the 9mg. That’s because the doctor must consider various factors, including your weight, any diseases you have and any drugs you might be taking. If that’s the case, you should avoid altering the dose you are given. Take a skipped dose as soon as you can recall unless it’s about time to take the next planned dose.
