*Product images are for reference only

Generic name:
  • Budesonide
Other brand name(s): 
  • Uceris


Entocort EC (budesonide) is a steroid that reduces inflammation in the body. 

Entocort EC (budesonide) is used to treat mild to moderate Crohn’s disease. 

Entocort EC (budesonide) may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.


Capsule, extended-release (Entocort EC)

  • 3mg

Tablet, extended-release (Uceris)

  • 9mg

Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.

Take this medicine in the morning with a full glass of water.

For Crohn’s disease:

  • take three capsules once daily in the morning; or
  • take one capsule 3 times a day (morning, midday and evening), unless your doctor instructs you otherwise.

Do not crush, chew, or break a Entocort EC (budesonide) capsule or tablet. Swallow it whole.

Your dosage needs may change if you have surgery, are ill, or are under stress. Do not change your doses or medication schedule without advice from your doctor.

Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse while using Entocort EC (budesonide).

Entocort EC (budesonide) can weaken your immune system. Tell your doctor if you have signs of infection such as fever, chills, body aches, vomiting, or feeling tired.

If you use this medicine long-term, you may need frequent medical tests.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember it and then take the next dose at the right time.

Store at room temperature; away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.

You should avoid eating grapefruit and drinking grapefruit juice while taking budesonide.

Grapefruit juice slows down the body’s ability to break down budesonide, which could cause budesonide levels in the blood to rise dangerously high.

Because both budesonide and alcohol can cause dizziness, taking the two together may make it worse.

You should avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medication.

Avoid being near people who are sick or have infections. Call your doctor for preventive treatment if you are exposed to chickenpox or measles. These conditions can be serious or even fatal in people who are using Entocort EC (budesonide)

  • osteoporosis or low bone mineral density;

  • any allergies; or

It is not known whether this medicine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. If you have taken Entocort EC (budesonide) during pregnancy, tell your doctor if your newborn baby has symptoms such as weakness, irritability, vomiting, or feeding problems.

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue or throat.

  • stretch marks, changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your face, neck, back, and waist).
