I took Entocort for 2 years and went off for a year. I had horrible reactions to Remicade.......docs took me off all meds except for Pentasa. Now they found a stricture and I will be going back on Entocort.....I guess it helped back then. I had trouble going off after using it for so long, I had withdrawals......but I can't take Prednisone, that's like taking crack for me! None of those effects with Entorocort, the steroid works just on the intestines.
