Drug Class and Mechanism
Budesonide, the active ingredient of Budenase AQ Nasal Spray, is an anti-inflammatory synthetic corticosteroid.
Budesonide is a synthetic steroid belonging to the glucocorticoid family, a family in which cortisol (hydrocortisone) is the naturally occurring steroid. Hydrocortisone is produced in the adrenal glands. Glucocorticoid steroids have potent anti-inflammatory actions. When used as a nasal inhaler or spray, Budesonide goes directly to the lining of the nose, and only 20% of the administered dose is absorbed into the body.
