The active ingredient present in Budecort Rotacaps is Budesonide. Each Budecort 200 mcg capsule contains 200 mcg of Budesonide in the form of a dry inhalation powder.

Uses of Generic Pulmicort Flexhaler (Budesonide Powder For Inhalation)

Generic Pulmicort Flexhaler is used to prevent asthma attacks and not to treat an asthma attack that has already begun. Budecort Rotacaps works by decreasing irritation and swelling in the airways, which helps to control or prevent asthma symptoms. It contains Budesonide which is a corticosteroid. Budesonide prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

Budecort Rotacaps - Dosage

The dosage of Budecort Rotacaps (Generic Pulmicort Flexhaler) is given below:
Adults (including elderly) and children over 12 years:
200 mcg to 1,600 mcg daily, in divided doses.
200 mcg twice daily, in the morning and in the evening. During periods of severe asthma the daily dosage can be increased up to 1600 mcg.
In patients with well controlled asthma, the daily dose can be reduced below 400 mcg but should not go below 200 mcg.
Patients should be maintained on the lowest dose that will effectively control symptoms.

Children (5 years to 12 years):
200 mcg to 800 mcg daily, in divided doses.
The dose should be reduced to the minimum necessary to maintain good asthma control. The patient should be transferred to once daily dosing at the same equivalent total daily dose. The dose should subsequently be reduced to the minimum needed to maintain good asthma control.
Patients must be instructed to take the once daily dose in the evening. It is important that the dose is taken consistently and at the same time every evening.
Patients, specially those receiving once daily treatment, should be advised that if their asthma deteriorates (e.g. increased frequency of bronchodilator use or persistent respiratory symptoms) they should double their steroid dose, by administering it twice daily, and must contact their doctor as soon as possible.
In patients where an increased therapeutic effect is required, an increased dose of Budesonide rotacaps (Budesonide Powder for inhalation) is recommended because of the lower risk of systemic effects as compared with a combined treatment with oral glucocorticosteroids.
Budecort Rotacaps should only be inhaled with the Cipla Rotahaler device (Generic Handihaler). Budecort Rotacaps must not be swallowed.

Warnings & Precautions When Using Budecort Rotacaps (Generic Pulmicort Flexhaler))

You should not use Budecort Rotacaps (Generic Pulmicort Flexhaler) if you are having an acute asthma attack.The other warnings and precautions are:

  • Treatment with the recommended doses of Budesonide Rotacaps usually gives a therapeutic benefit within 10 days. However, certain patients may have an excessive collection of mucous secretion in the bronchi. In these cases, a short course of oral corticosteroids (usually 1 to 2 weeks) must be administered in addition to the aerosol. After the course of the oral drug, the inhaler alone should be sufficient therapy.
  • Transfer of patients on oral steroids to treatment with budesonide inhaler demands special care, mainly due to the slow restitution of the disturbed hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function, caused by extended treatment with oral corticosteroids. When the Budesonide Rotacaps treatment is initiated, the patient should be in a relatively stable phase. Budesonide Rotacaps is then given in combination with the previously used oral steroid dose for about 10 days.
  • Budecort Rotacaps are not intended for rapid relief of acute episodes of asthma or symptoms of asthma. In these situations an inhaled short-acting bronchodilator is required. Patients should be advised to have such 'rescue' medication with them at all times.
  • The main route of metabolism of Budesonide, as well as other corticosteroids, is via cytochrome P450 (CYP) isoenzyme 3A4 (CYP3A4). After oral administration of ketoconazole, a potent inhibitor of CYP3A4, the mean plasma concentration of orally administered Budesonide increased. Concomitant administration of other known inhibitors of CYP3A4 (eg, itraconazole, clarithromycin, erythromycin, etc.) may inhibit the metabolism of, and increase the systemic exposure to, Budesonide.
  • Reduced liver function may affect the elimination of glucocorticosteroids. The plasma clearance following an intravenous dose of Budesonide however was similar in cirrhotic patients and in healthy subjects. After oral ingestion systemic availability of Budesonide was increased by compromised liver function due to decreased first pass metabolism.
  • No overall differences in safety were observed between these patients and younger patients. Clinical studies did not include sufficient numbers of patients aged 65 years and over to determine differences in efficacy between elderly and younger patients. Other reported clinical or medical surveillance experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients.


Budecort Inhaler During Pregnancy

Budesonide (Budecort Rotacaps) is classified by the US FDA as Pregnancy Category B.
Several studies of pregnant women and from worldwide post marketing experience, have not shown increased teratogenic risk associated with inhaled Budesonide during pregnancy.
In animal studies, glucocorticosteroids have been shown to induce malformations. This is unlikely to be relevant for humans given recommended doses, but therapy with inhaled Budesonide must be regularly reviewed and maintained at the lowest effective dose.
Hypoadrenalism can occur in infants born of mothers receiving corticosteroids during pregnancy. Such babies should be carefully observed.
Use of Budecort Rotacaps (Budesonide Powder for inhalation) during pregnancy requires that the benefits for the mother be weighed against the risks for the foetus. Budecort Rotacaps should only be used during pregnancy if the expected benefits outweigh the potential risks. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.

Budecort Rotacaps During Breastfeeding

Budesonide, like other corticosteroids, is secreted in human milk. Studies with Budesonide delivered via dry powder inhaler indicates that the total daily oral dose of Budesonide available in breast milk to the infant is approximately 0.3% to 1% of the dose inhaled by the mother. Use of Budecort Rotacaps immediately after breastfeeding to maximize the time interval between dosing and breastfeeding to minimize infant exposure.
Do not use this medicine without telling your doctor if you are breastfeeding a baby. This medicine can affect the growth in children. Talk with your doctor if you think your child is not growing at a normal rate while using this medication.
