Entocort EC Details (Brand and Generic)

We currently have the brand Entocort EC capsules from Canada and the Entocort EC Enemas from the United Kingdom manufactured by AstraZeneca. The generic Budesonide also called Budez CR is manufactured by Sun Pharma and comes from India.


Entocort EC and the generic Budesonide in the strength of 3 mg capsules. The Entocort EC also comes in the strength of 20 mcg/ml (7 x 115 ml) Enemas.


Entocort EC (Budesonide) is a anti-inflammatory medication that used to treat certain bowel conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Budesonide does not cure these conditions but it may decrease symptoms such as pain and diarrhea. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract. However, inflammation can occur anywhere in the digestive system, from the mouth to the anus. Over time, the inflammation that is caused by Crohn’s disease can damage sections of the digestive system, causing additional complications, such as bowel obstruction. This medications works by decreasing the body’s natural defense response against the gastrointestinal tract.

Side Effects and Precautions

Budesonide usually has fewer side effects than other corticosteroids because budesonide exerts their effects directly upon the gut and only small amounts are absorbed into the body. The common side effects may include back or joint pain, bloating, cold symptoms, constipation, dizziness, feeling tired, headache, indigestion, sore throat, etc.

Seek emergency medical attention if you have any symptoms of an allergic reaction such as shortness of breath, hives, swelling of tongue and throat. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:

• Menstrual problems in women or impotence in men;
• Nausea, vomiting or rectal bleeding;
• Pain or burning when you urinate;
• Signs of too much steroid medicine in your blood (acne, bruising, thinning skin);
• Symptoms of stomach or intestinal bleeding;
• Swelling in your ankles;
• Unusual tiredness;
• Vision problems

Warnings and Interactions

You should not use Entocort EC if you are allergic to Budesonide or if you have any other allergies. Inform your doctor if you have ever had:
• An infection including chickenpox or measles;
• Cataracts, or glaucoma;
• Diabetes;
• Eczema;
• High blood pressure;
• Liver disease;
• Osteoporosis or low bone mineral density;
• Stomach ulcer;
• Weak immune system

Avoid large amounts of grapefruits and grapefruit juice while taking this medication as it can raise the levels of budesonide in your body and lead to increased side effects. You should also tell your doctor about all the prescription and OTC medications you take as there may be a drug interaction between Budesonide and other medications, especially: aldesleukin, blood thinners, mifepristone, and NSAIDs. This medication may lower your ability to fight infections. Limit alcoholic beverages as it may increase your risk of stomach bleeding. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
