I was on Entocort off and on for several years and it always worked really well for me up until this last time earlier this year. Then, I guess it just couldn't get on top of the inflamation and I continued to go down hill. I had fought Prednisone up to that point, always willing to pay the extra money it cost to be on the Entocort. I finally had to do a course of Prednisone and stop the Entocort. It has become ineffective for me. Not sure how it would be in the future if I were to try it again. Bottom line - I think it's a great drug when it works.
Good luck with everything...."this too, shall pass"....
