Budesonide inhalation suspension is only for use with a jet nebulizer machine. Make sure you know how to use your jet nebulizer machine before your child uses budesonide inhalation suspension.
Budesonide inhalation suspension is a liquid that is turned into a mist by a nebulizer and inhaled into the lungs.
The face mask should be properly adjusted to optimize delivery and to avoid exposing the eyes to the nebulized medication. Corticosteroid effects on the skin can be avoided if the face is washed after the use of a face mask.
- Budesonide inhalation suspension comes in a sealed protective aluminum foil envelope.
- Do not open the sealed pouch until you are ready to use a dose of budesonide inhalation suspension.
