i have only been on entocort (9mg/daily) for a week and 1/2 now and it seems my muscles get fatigued very easily lately. has anyone experienced this while on entocort? could the muscle fatigue be from the crohn's? i have also been experiencing headaches the past few days. i am sure that is from the lovely entocort.

thank you again :)

Both headache and myalgia [muscle pain] are listed as side effects in Entocort's prescribing information. I haven't personally experienced that but perhaps someone else will come along that has.

thanks ides. there are so many side effects to meds, and it seems they always list them as a precautionary. i usually handle scripts pretty good but i guess i underestimated steroids :/ getting muscle pain in my arms while trying to do my normal computer work for my job or driving is a wee but irritating. can't wait to see how i handle walking around boston on sunday >.<
