Pulmicort Respules is an asthma medication used to manage and prevent asthma attacks in children aged 12 months to 8 years.

Budesonide is a corticosteroid that binds to receptors responsible for your body’s inflammatory response in your airways when inhaled which allows it to reduce and prevent inflammation. Thanks to this action, Pulmicort Respules increase pulmonary function which improves both daytime and nighttime asthma symptoms.

This asthma medication is a safe and effective therapy for managing and preventing asthma attacks in young children who cannot use other forms of treatment. Pulmicort Respules has been found to be as effective as traditional asthma medications and is well-tolerated with a low incidence of adverse events.

Uses and Dosage

The dose and administration of Pulmicort Respules that is prescribed will vary depending on the individual and severity of their asthma condition being treated. Follow all your doctor’s instructions and read packaging labels carefully to ensure the best therapeutic response.

  • Administer using a jet nebulizer connected to an air compressor with a mouthpiece
  • Ultrasonic nebulizers are not suitable for Pulmicort respule administration
  • Doses range depending on previous asthma therapies taken
  • If switching from bronchodilators, children should take 0.5mg divided or once daily
  • Those who previously took inhaled corticosteroids should take 0.5mg divided or once a day
  • Those who took oral corticosteroids should take 1mg once daily or divided into two doses
  • Children should not use more than 1mg a day
  • Children who do not respond to non-steroidal treatment may start by taking 0.25mg once daily
  • Rinse your mouth after inhaling your doses to prevent thrush
  • If using a nebulizer equipped with a face mask, wash the mask area of your face after each use
  • Do not allow a young child to use this medication alone
  • Contact your doctor if symptoms persist or worsen
  • Store at room temperature away from moisture and light
  • Keep the cover on the inhaler device when not using

Side Effects

Pulmicort Respules may cause some side effects to develop while improving airflow and pulmonary function to prevent asthma attacks. Speak with your doctor for more information regarding any symptoms that you may encounter when taking budesonide.

  • Runny or stuffy nose, sneezing
  • Red, itchy, and watery eyes

Some more serious adverse reactions may occur when inhaling budesonide. Stop using Pulmicort Respules and contact your doctor if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Worsening asthma
  • Wheezing, chocking, or other troubles breathing after inhalation
  • White patches or sores inside your mouth or on your lips
  • Blurred vision, tunnel vision, eye pain or swelling, seeing halos around lights

Allergic Reactions

Do not use Pulmicort Respules if you are allergic to budesonide, milk proteins, or any of the other listed ingredients. If you develop an allergic reaction, stop using this asthma medication and call your doctor.

Pulmicort Respules are designed to help manage and prevent asthma attacks in children and should not be used to treat an active asthma attack. Budesonide will not work quickly enough to treat an attack that has already begun; always use fast-acting rescue medicines for asthma attacks.

Seek medical attention if your breathing worsens quickly or if you think the medication is not working as well.

Avoid getting Pulmicort Respules mist in your eyes. If contact occurs, rinse your eyes with water.

Avoid being near sick or infected people while using budesonide because steroid medications can make you more susceptible to becoming sick. Contact your doctor if you are exposed to chickenpox or measles to receive preventative treatment. These conditons can be serious or fatal in steroid users.

To ensure your safety when using Pulmicort Respules, tell your doctor if you have ever had any of the following:

  • Food or drug allergies
  • liver disease
  • Osteoporosis or low bone mineral density
  • Glaucoma, cataracts, herpes infection of the eyes
  • Tuberculosis
  • Any type of bacterial, fungal, viral, or parasitic infection

Using any corticosteroid long-term, like budesonide, may lead to bone loss. Your risk is greater if you do not exercise, do not get enough vitamin D or calcium, or if you have a family history of osteoporosis.

Some drugs may interact with budesonide and cause adverse reactions. To avoid this, tell your doctor about all the medications that you take, including over the counter medicines, but especially any of the following:

  • Antifungal medicines
  • Immunosuppressive medications
  • Seizure medications
  • Other steroid medicines

Form and Strength

Pulmicort respule strengths:

  • 1mg/2ml
  • 0.5mg/2ml

Both Pulmicort respule strengths are available in quantities of 60 while the 0.5mg respules are also available in quantities of 20.


Do you need to rinse your mouth after using Pulmicort Respules?

Yes, after each dose of Pulmicort Respules you should rinse your mouth with water and then spit it out. This helps reduce your risk of developing oral thrush, a fungal infection in your mouth and throat, that can occur after using inhaled corticosteroids like budesonide.

Does Pulmicort Respules help with coughing?

Pulmicort Respules are designed to help manage and prevent asthma symptoms in children aged 12 months to 8 years old. When taken once or twice daily, this inhaler medication improves pulmonary function which decreases daytime and nighttime symptoms including coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
