i spoke to my GI yesterday since I saw the RA doc and he wants to try humira for my CD realted arthritis. I also asked him about those vaccines that the hospital wants me to get since I am on entocort I wanted his opinion. He said yes to hep B and the tetanus/dyptheria/whooping vaccines. He said thay are all dead vaccines so they are okay for me to get.
I also informed him my gut/D has not changed since starting the entocort (they are testing me for c diff next just to rule it out since I was on so many ABs with my 3 Sxs this yr). He said I should start to cut down then and I started the 6mg today as opposed to the 9. He may have said how long on the 6 before cutting to 3 bbut I forget.
How long does one typically stay on 6 mg before tapering to 3....I have only been on it about 2 weeks this time
