I have UC, they say, although it feels more like Crohn's and my GI is starting to think so too - or maybe pseudomembranous colitis.
I am on entocort again, for the 3rd time in 2 years. It is not working this time and after 18 days I am struggling with stomach aches on top of everything else. Is it the entocort? Must be. Is it a serious side effect? Don't know - feels like it may be.
To add insult to injury, I was hoping this entocort round would provide relief as I head for a 2-week business trip complete with a huge conference presentation in Australia starting next Monday. So much for the relief plan!
Just a vent, I guess, thanks...
23 years of UC which started after quitting smoking. In and out of flares which are usually triggered by antibiotics. Latest issue is endless diarrhea without blood or mucous.

I am not sure I have experienced it on Entocort, but I do know that Prednisone causes my acid reflux to get worse. Maybe talking to your doctor about your side effects might be a good idea.

Good luck
