I have been taking Remicade, about six infustions so far, but haven't noticed big improvements. I had an appendix burst a month ago which sent the Crohn's into overdrive. My Primary gave me Prednisone for the first time, 2 20mg tabs daily, which gave me immediate relief. I only took it for 5 days but was astonished at the results.
My GI followed up by putting me on Entocort, 3 3mg tabs every morning, which has kept up the wonderful results. I still have loose BMs, but only once or twice a day, (a great improvement), but I was wondering if this was the normal dosage or would 4 tabs daily or if there was a stronger dosage that might mimick the prednisone.
Any input would be appreciated.
