Has anyone had root canals while on entocort?  Wondering if it makes you more susceptible to infection?  My teeth are awful!!! Not looking forward to this!!!

Hi,

(((hugs))) on having to have a root canal. I have had 2 root canals and have been on either pred or entocort and I didn't have any problems. I would make sure your dentist is aware of all the meds you are taking, and work together on this.

Best of Luck,
Julia

The prescribing info provided with Entocort says to increase the med and let your doc know.

I wouldn't be comfortable changing my dose. I would let the GI decide how to handle it.

Blessings!
