If you show symptoms of an allergic reaction during your budesonide treatment, inform your doctor and seek professional medical assistance immediately. These symptoms may include, but are not limited to breathing difficulties, face swelling, lips swelling, tongue swelling, or throat swelling.
Other causes for alarm that should be reported to your doctor immediately are: thinning of your skin, prone to easy bruising, an increased amount of acne or facial hair, ankles swelling, physical weakness, fatigue, dizziness, feelings of fainting, nauseous, vomiting, bleeding of the rectum, painful or burning sensation when urinating, menstrual issues in women, impotence or lowered sex drive in men, stretch marks, body shape changes, or changes in the location of body fat.
It is very important to inform your doctor if you are showing possible symptoms of infection such as fever, body chills, aches in your body, vomiting or fatigue, as budesonide is known to potentially weaken your immune system.
Some of the more frequently occurring side effects that are not a cause for alarm are headaches, nausea, stomach pain, gas, bloating, constipation, tiredness, joint pain, acne, or common cold symptoms such as, nasal congestion, sneezing, or sore throat.
This is in no way an absolute list of all possible side effects. Other side effects not listed here may occur. If you are seeking a complete list of all possible side effects, consult with your doctor.
