Thu, 21 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

Budesonide does have minor benefits in terms of lower CDAI scores and longer time to relapse of disease. However, these benefits are offset by higher treatment-related adverse event rates and more frequent adrenocorticoid suppression in patients receiving budesonide.
