I'm glad you came clean and finally told the whole story and are seeing a pdoc. I just want to encourage you to give the medications a while to get into your system to see the true effects. You'll mostly need a combination of a few other medications added to it that we call a "cocktail" around here.
Let your pdoc know of any side effects or any changes in how you feel. Even the slightest little adjustment in the dosages makes a world of difference.
Also, most BP's find that meeting with a therapist helps their treatment/wellness/support package a lot!
I have crohns too and if you take entocort at any time, keep a close watch on yourself. I am only able to tolerate 2 a day before it will send me in a manic episode.
Good luck. I'm sure you will find a lot of support here on the BP forum.
