I also take 2 capsules a day (3 mg each).
I don’t know how or if it interfere s with a blood thinner. Your doctor my be able to tell you. From what I understand about this steroid it only works in the bowel. I take no other medications.
The only side affect I’ve noticed is cramping in my hands and feet.
Let me know if you find any other side affects.

Another side effect is weight gain. In addition to bruising and very thin skin on my hands (which seems to always be ripping off and bleeding) I gained 20 pounds in a matter of 4-6 weeks. I don’t know what else to do though, if I quit taking the budesonide 3mg then I can’t leave the house (bathroom) and that’s not good either.
