Budesonide orodispersible tablet for eosinophilic oesophagitis – first line

Drugs

Gastrointestinal, Pancreatic and Liver Disease

February 2017


Budesonide orodispersible tablets are a new formulation of budesonide to treat eosinophilic oesophagitis in adults. Eosinophilic oesophagitis is an inflammatory condition that causes problems with eating and swallowing. Budesonide orodispersible tablets are dissolved in the mouth and slowly swallowed. Some studies have suggested that budesonide may reduce the inflammatory reaction that causes the symptoms of eosinophilic oesophagitis.
