Budenofalk rectal foam for ulcerative colitis

Dr Falk has launched Budenofalk (2mg budesonide) rectal foam, indicated for treatment of active ulcerative colitis limited to the rectum and sigmoid colon.

The new presentation is available as a canister containing 14 days’ treatment of budesonide foam (2mg per actuation). The recommended dosage for adults over 18 years is one actuation daily.

Treatment with Budenofalk rectal foam results in lower systemic steroid levels than oral therapy with systemic steroids. Transfer from other steroid therapy may result in symptoms relating to the change in systemic steroid levels.

Budenofalk is also available as 3mg capsules indicated for mild to moderate Crohn’s disease affecting the ileum and/or ascending colon and symptomatic relief of chronic diarrhoea due to collagenous colitis.
