Perscribed for chronic Sinusitis by Specialist at Southwest Medical after having sinus surgery three times, my husband went to specialist at SW Medical in Dallas. Due to the chronic nature of his problem, the doctor recommended using budesonide dispensed directly into his nostrils allowing the med to go into upper sinus cavity. This has helped his symptoms a lot but I have no clue the side effects when used this way.
Budesonide is generally well tolerated. Because it is inhaled it is less likely to produce the same side effects associated with the oral use of corticosteroids.

Sorry I do not have an answer but am in serious need of help. It sounds as though your husband had exactly the same experience as my wife. She had surgery at UT Southwestern and was prescribed budesonide by drops in the nose. That was about a month ago and during the last week her condition has worsened - coughing continually and, now, having much difficulty in breathing. How long did it take for your husband to experience relief of his symptoms? Any info would be so much appreciated. Neilson
