I've been on steroids for 7 years so my case is not the best. I stayed for almost 5 years on entocort and got rid of it by switching to cortiment which is budesonude also but it acts on the colon.
For tapering entocort in a smooth way, take one capsule 3 mg on one day and on the other day take two tablets with a total of 6mg. If you add 3 and 6, this will be 9mg divided by 3=4.5 mg. You can stay on this dose for 2 weeks until you go down to 3mg.
