I've been on Entocort for just over 3 months (3 pills/9mgs each morning), and am becoming increasingly agitated and irritable. It's nothing like Prednisone where I literally cried from 10 days straight, but the agitation is becoming a bit of problem -- not enjoying much, snapping at people I love, brain spinning too much about minor issues. I'm wondering if tapering to 6mg might soften this side effect. Anyone else who is suffering from Entocort & irritability notice an improvement when reducing the dosage?
(I've also noticed an increase in my appetite, which is okay for now)
