My daughter has been on Entocort for nearly two years and it has kept her in remission. The only time she flare was when she tried to go off that one last pill. Her doc did a slow taper - 9 mg for 5 weeks, 6 mg for 4 weeks, and 3 mg for a month...then to try to taper her off, he asked her to try taking one pill every other day. After just a few days she flared. So now there is no plan to take her off Entocort, any time soon.
Her blood work seems to indicate she is in remission, and she has no symptoms, but we are thinking of letting the doc do an SBFT to confirm that she is in remission.
