If one is having a flare, or it is thought there might be an infectious problem, then the meds they prescribed are not out of line. The Levaquin and Flagyl are a common combo given to CD patients. Some people with CD are put on those two meds for months at a time because it can control a flare. The Phenegran is to control nausea and I would expect they told you to only take that if you were troubled by nausea. Percocet is a pain killer and that would also be a "as needed" only med.
Could this be a flare? - Well, possibly, That is something the doctors will have to decide because they have access to your records and lab results.
Did you have as much diarrhea prior to starting the new meds? Often, antibiotics can cause diarrhea but Flagyl and Levaquin don't as much as others in most people. Can you tolerate dairy products? I always eat one half to a full container of yogurt every day when I am on antibiotics. I buy the kind with live cultures because it helps replace the natural gut bacteris that the antibiotics kill.
Entocort is a type of "topical" gut steroid. It treats the lining of the intestine. Normally someone taking it will find it reduces symptoms within a couple weeks to a month. However, it does not always work in everyone. Also, if you are having lots of diarrhea, the medication might be passing through your system too quickly.
When you are calling the GI's office, are you getting to speak to anyone? A receptionist? Nurse? What reason are they giving you for the doctor not calling you back? Has the nurse talked to you? You might need to be more insistent about
the severity of your problem. If the receptionist says the doctor will call you and then he doesn't, call the next morning - again. Politely, but firmly, ask to talk to the nurse. Explain what you have told us and your concerns.
Good luck and let us know how you are doing. Sorry, I couldn't be of more help...
