I started taking Entocort in March 2006 when I was first dx with CD, it was the only med that helped with the inflammation. I didn't notice any adverse effects until weaned off of Entocort in August 2007, the mood swings I experienced were out of control, I was snappy and sometimes downright mean one minute and the next crying over absolutely nothing. It was scary for me because I had no control over my emotions, and it lasted about
a week. Unfortunately, my doc had to put me back on the Entocort about
a month later when the inflammation caused a partial blockage which caused me a lot of pain, after about
2 weeks of being back on the Entocort I went thru the same crazy mood swings, unfortunately the worst of it happened one day at work, I went in the bathroom when I couldn't stop crying, not wanting anyone to see me, I was so embarassed. And heaven help anyone who spoke to me because I would bite a head off. And that's not like me at all, I am very upbeat and even tempered normally.
So just be aware that the Entocort can cause serious mood swings, it is after all a steroid.
I hope it works for you though and helps with the pain and inflammation. Take care Bible!
