Pulmicort and the common cold

just wondering if Pulmicort provides any relief or helps recovery from the common cold?

Will it help with stuffy noses or flem (phlegm) build up?

There are no studies on the use of Pulmicort (budesonide) to provide relief or hasten recovery from the common cold.  I found one study on rhinovirus infected asthmatic volunteers treated with Pulmicort (budesonide).  In that study inflammation was neither improved nor worsened by the administration of Pulmicort (budesonide).
