Tarpeyo (Budesonide)

Prescription requiredOnly Available By Prescription
What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Tarpeyo, with its active ingredient Budesonide, is a breakthrough in the management of certain kidney diseases, notably those that cause significant proteinuria (excess protein in urine) in adults, such as IgA nephropathy (IgAN) when there is a risk of progressing to end-stage kidney disease. Budesonide works by reducing inflammation and the immune response, offering a targeted approach to managing kidney disease symptoms and progression. Manufactured with precision, Tarpeyo is designed for optimal efficacy and safety, aiming to improve the quality of life for individuals facing chronic kidney conditions.

Before you buy Tarpeyo, it is crucial that you talk to your healthcare provider about potential side effects and Tarpeyo price.
