What is Rhinocort?

Budesonide is a glucocorticoid steroid for the treatment of asthma, COPD and non-infectious rhinitis (including hay fever and other allergies), and for treatment and prevention of nasal polyposis. In addition, it is used for Crohn's disease (inflammatory bowel disease).

A new extended-release formulation of budesonide called "Uceris" has been recently approved by the United States FDA for ulcerative colitis.

It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, a list of the most important medication needed in a basic health system.
