As you know, I have begun taking Entocort 9mg last Wednesday. I have tolerated it okay so far I guess, however, I am having some symptoms that don't seem right. For one, I am actually having more BM's than I was before. Secondly, the amount of gas is unbelievable! (My kids think this is hilarious! LOL) Also, my a** is really starting to get sore. SO, my question is, is this normal? Will my symptoms get better or should I contact the GI? No D, but I don't get D even in my worst times, just increased frequency. Nothing else has changed. However, interestingly I am losing weight faster (still doing WW) than I have been during the last few months. And for the person who asked about more frequent urination on Entocort, yes I am going a lot more, but only during the early hours of the day. Anyway, what do you think?
P.S.--It is helping the joint pain.
P.P.S.--I reached goal at Weight Watchers, finally! I lost a total of 32.6 lbs.
