I've been on Entocort for about
10 days and don't have a moon face. I'm only on the 9mg dose for 3 weeks which I think isn't long enough, but that's by the by. My Crohn's has been a bit better, but not enough to make the extremely low and agitated mood of the past week week worth it. That
said, I don't know if it's the Entocort, the Crohn's, or other things going on which are making me feel this way. Also, since Entocort apparently takes 2-4 weeks to kick in fully, there's still time for the Crohn's to get even better.
This link might be of interest to you. Jump to page 3 (I can't link directly to it) and check the second and third tables. In the short term, 11% of people on 9mg of Entocort get moon face as opposed to 37% on 40mg of Prednisolone. So you have a chance of getting moon face but not a very high one. www.rxlist.com/entocort-drug.htm
Edit: Apparently that link does go straight to page 3 :p
