Anyone ever been prescribed prednisone and entocort at the same time? I think I read of someone on here using both at the same time.

My daughter used Entocort to wean off prednisone. Introduced one pill of Entocort along with 20mg prednisone, then two pills Entocort with about 10 or 15 mg pred (it's been awhile), and then three pills Entocort on the day she tapered to zero pred.

That is interesting. I might ask my doctor to do that.
