Hi I'm new here and have a question:
 
Has anyone here with Crohn's gotten worse after starting Entocort EC and Azathioprine, then felt tons better after stopping the meds?  Blood tests got a lot worse too.
 
Thanks,

I was on Entocort 9mgs for five weeks. I had horrible headaches every day and it did nothing to help my CD symptoms. Actually, I went to the bathroom more often. It was awful. mad

Entocort put my daughter into remission with no serious side effects, but she has not yet taken azathioprine.

Yes, Yes. I had the same experience. Felt worse with the medications. Pain, terrible diarrhea, nausea, aching bones, dark stool, exteme fatigue.

I have been on Entocorte 14 months and on Imuran for 3 1/2 yrs. I have not had any problems except when I had to go w/o Entocorte for 4 days, waiting on pharmacy to get it in. Whew, hope that never happens again. It was awful. Susie

Thanks for the replies - it is good to know that I'm not the only one who can't seem to handle regular CD meds.
