I have been on Entocort since March 2006. My GI tapered me off of it twice and both times I got partial obstruction and several abdominal pain. Entocort seems to be the best way to handle my inflammation, I know that every body is different though. But for me Entocort is a God send. I was on 9mg per day but am on 6mg per day now, I will stay at 6mg cuz I know from experience that if I lower it to 3mg per day I will be hurting.
