YOU are making a BIG mistake in relying on prednisone and entocort to manage your Crohn's.
Your doctor is so right! If the Asocol isn't cutting the mustard then it is time to give it some assistance or to move on to better meds.
I was just doing what he said to do previously, it was never my choice. I think their previous plan was to use steroids for a little bit and then switch to something else. I'm really glad to hear it's worked for you! Very encouraging. Supposedly, I have a 'mild' case so that may be a help. I haven't had the obstructions or aches and pains that I hear about
from others here (and boy I know how lucky I am in that regard), just the urgent diarrhea with some blood when flaring (and side effects of steroids of course). Thanks for the reply!
