ENTOCORT ENEMA (BUDESONIDE ENEMA)

Entocort Enema Description

Entocort Enema contains Budesonide, a synthetic steroid that may be prescribed for treating the painful inflammation experienced by those with ulcerative colitis (UC). This inflammatory bowel disease affects your large intestine and rectum and can cause bloody, runny stools, abdominal cramping, and stomach pains. The exact cause of UC is unknown. However, it is treated as an auto-immune condition where your own body’s defense system responds abnormally and believes that substances in your colon are a threat. The chemical response causes inflammation as a way to contain and destroy the threat.

Symptom Relief as Entocort Enema Reduces Inflammation

When you administer the Entocort Enema as directed, Budesonide is delivered directly to the affected area where it inhibits the production of the substances that cause inflammation. With the use of one Entocort Enema per night for four weeks, many individuals can go into remission for months. If there is little progress after four weeks, your doctor may recommend another month of using the Entocort Enema and then reassess your situation. There is no cure for UC, but Entocort Enema can provide relief from the symptoms and allow you to go about your daily life without pain.

Conditions Treated by Entocort Enema

Ulcerative colitis is not gender specific; it can affect men and women at any age and is thought to be more prevalent in those with close family members that have it. Some may only experience mild symptoms while others have a higher rate of absenteeism from work or school because the pain and constant need to have a bowel movement are unrelenting. Don’t ignore the symptoms, see your doctor and talk about the best procedure for a diagnosis and avoid the risk of complications from this inflammatory bowel disease.

Before Using Entocort Enema

Share information with your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx medications you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor decide if Entocort Enema is the right medication for you. Ask your doctor if Entocort Enema is safe to use if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding.

Important Information About Entocort Enema

Long-term steroid use can make it harder for your body to respond to physical stress, so if you are expecting to undergo any dental or surgical procedures, tell the attending physician that you are using Entocort Enema. You may also be more susceptible to infections because of your immune system being suppressed from the Entocort Enema. Notify your doctor about any vaccines you are due to have as they may not work as well because of the Budesonide in Entocort Enema.

It is usually recommended to give the Entocort Enema before bed as there may be some leakage. As such, you can lay a protective pad or sheet on your bedding to prevent any staining that could occur overnight.
