Hello! I was just diagnosed with Crohns after a colonscopy on Tues. I started Entocort on Wed am. By Friday evening I had terrible diahreah and thought maybe it could have been something I ate for dinner the night before. Took my usual dose again on Saturday morning and by Saturday night I was hit with wicked diahreah again! All night long last night! It was the worst I've had in ages!

For many years I thought I had IBS-D and just watched what I ate and took Immodium on a regular basis. (not taking that anymore as of this past week) I was very surprised to hear I had Crohns! Waiting for the biopsy results as well, which I think will confirm it.

Anyway, I'm wondering if you think it is the Entocort that is probably causing this as it is the only new med I am on. ?? It seemed to hit after 3 day of it. I thought this was supposed to stop pain (Which I don't usually have) and stop diahreah???

I refuse to take the pills again this morning. I see my dr on Thurs but, will call him first thing Tues am after the holiday weekend.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
