Is it possible to become dependent on Entocort. For the last month I have been taking 6mg of entocort. I started bruising really bad, so my doctor had me stop. I was at the end of my prescript
ion so I just didn't refill it. Within 3-4 day the blood, mucus, pain, and tenesmus started. I have no D, usually constipation - and man is it bad. I haven't really gone in 6 days. I feel like I have to go, but then it is mucus and blood. So annoying. I saw the doc on Wed., and he put me back on Entocort, but only 3mg. I don't think it is working. I feel even worse today. We just can't get this flare under control. He brought up Remicade, which I do not want to take. It sounds too dangerous to me.
