If you flare every time you try to taper Entocort, it means you've become steroid-dependent. I went through this for three years, until I started Remicade. And I had some of the really bad side effects you're not supposed to get from Entocort.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.
Asacol, Rowasa, Pentasa, Prednisone, Entocort, Azathioprine
Colazal, Remicade, Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri.
In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
