I'm going to try Budesonide extended release 9mg for UC for only a few weeks since I developed a hypersensitivity reaction to mesalamine/balsalazide :-(
1) The only dose for budesonide/uceris extended release is 9mg in the U.S. The lower doses are entocort for chron's disease. You cannot break the capsule. Therefore, how do you taper this drug?
2) Is budesonide as tolerable as mesalamine?
