Pulmicort Turbuhaler (Budesonide)

I've been on the pulmicort turbuhaler for 9 days and my b/p is now very high. I'm taking it for asthma, but don't know if I should stop taking it? ## Budesonide is a steroid class medication, which has been known to cause elevated blood pressure as a side effect. However, you should speak to your doctor, rather than just stopping it, as you may need to try a different medication, and they may also need to prescribe something to help lower your blood pressure. How high has it been?
