It's the same thing as Entocort. I've been on it since last October, and honestly I don't think it's done much. I was on Entocort and Pentasa for almost three months without any sort of improvement at all. It took Prednisone added to the Entocort and Pentasa to really help my CD symptoms.
Right now, I'm taking: bi-weekly humira, 9mg entocort, 100 mg Azasan (Imuran), 4 gm Pentasa, and 40 mg of prednisone. And thankfully, I'm in remission.
Anyway, Entocort is one of the very low tier CD drugs, so don't expect too much from it.

Entocort 9 mg/day, Pentasa 4 gm/day, started Humira 1/22/08, started 100 mg of Azasan (Imuran) 2/20/08. I'm convinced that Prednisone is the root of all evil, and primarily responsible for global warming.
