Welcome to Healing Well, jamisca! I'm sorry that you recently got the Crohn's diagnosis but am really glad that you found us. How have you been doing since you began Entocort? Has it helped your symptoms?
I took Entocort for about
3 months. In the beginning I did not have any side effects from it. Then my symptoms flared and the GI added prednisone along with the Entocort. Then I ran into problems, more from the prednisone than the Entocort.
We have had a lot of people here have good success with Entocort. A few people have had some side effects. A list of the side effects reported from Entocort can be found here: http://www.rxlist.com/entocort-drug.htm
