Hello! I have been in remission for the last 3 months or so. I am now in a mini-flare I would say. Just not feeling right, change in bowel habits, low grade fever, and very tired. My GI wanted me to add Entocourt (9mg/day) along with my pentasa. He wants me to take it for 6 weeks and then let him know how I'm doing. My question is, and I've searched on the site for the answer but didn't see it, have you tapered this or just stopped cold turkey like he wants me to do? I am only concerned because it's a type of steroid and obviously with pred you have to taper slowly. Thanks in advance!!
Diagnosed with crohn's in January 2008!

No longer on Nexium...well now i"m back on it!
I am 27 years old and have been married for 2 1/2 years. My husband and I are currently going to try to get pregnant. This is our first month trying, so wish us luck!!
