Hi Artkid, which dose of Entocort are you on? Without more information about the dosage, it's hard to tell whether you are getting enough of the med to do the job. Typically, up to three pills, or a total of 9 mg daily, is required to try to induce something close to remission. The minimum maintenance dose is 6 mg, but as others have said, this is not a good maintenance med for the long term...even the clinical trials show a flare is likely within the year, when on the maintenance dose.
Also, it is unlikely that Entocort, by itself, will put a patient into full remission. Even when symptoms are gone, the inflammation can be festering in the body, causing damage...for instance, a stricture. To date, I have not seen a clinical study showing Entocort knocked out all inflammation in the small intestine, resulting in a clean colonoscopy...given the amount of money drug companies make off Entocort, am assuming they know it can't result in full remission...or I'm sure they would have plenty of pics posted, showing clean colonoscopies, to prove it works.
Entocort is a great med to take to get symptoms under control while you figure out the next step. The next step means choosing a med and/or diet that will create a real remission, and that possibly might be taken on a lifetime basis.
(Sorry, I'm going to have to disagree, flowery, and say Entocort, like prednisone, tends to cause constipation rather than D. In fact, when my daughter had C on prednisone the doctor said, "Good, this means it is working." Yes, a steroid can "open up" areas of the small intestine, which means by reducing inflammation, for instance, it can prevent or improve narrowing of the small intestine...but this does not cause D.)
