I'm doing the same thing. Every time I try to taper of my 6mg does of Entocort I start to flare. GI put me on Imuran. I've been on Imuran for one month so far but on 150mg for 2 weeks. I had to increase slowly because Imuran has given me problems in the past. I've already noticed a slight difference. Some of my stools have been formed (which I don't remember ever seeing before!) and I've been going less. Yesterday I went TWICE. I keep thinking something is wrong because only going twice is just weird. I feel off!! So, I've been going 2-4 times the last week.
Are you a girl?
How much Entocort were you on and how did you taper?
I'm not too sure how to taper my Entocort. The way the GI does it (2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1,0) is just too fast of a taper. So, I'm making my own up.
Have you had any side effects from the Imuran?
Suffered for my whole life before being diagnosed.

Salofalk 1500mg x 4/day
