My GI thinks since my symptoms have not completely went away (or 80-90% better) that I need to go to 2 acacol 3x’s a day instead of the 3 acacol 2x’s a day and continue taking endocort 3mg 2x’s a day. I am to try this for a few months and see how I am feeling. He didn't see the need to change my medication.
My concern is I have been on endocort since January of 2008. My GI says that long-term therapy is sometimes necessary, however I worry about side effects considering endocort is in the steroid family.
Does anyone have any experience in the area of long-term endocort use? Or read anything about it?
