Entocort does not have steroid-like side effects for most people. I took it for 8 weeks @ 9 mg and then did a slow taper over two more months. I did not have moon face, weight gain, insomnia, etc. I did have occasional heart palpitations or dizziness when I was on the full dose and had some difficulty concentrating on full dose and while tapering. Overall it worked for me and I would take it again if I had to.
