My doctor has mentioned starting budesonide sp? aka endocort enemas. He said he is going to try to find a pharmacy that mixes it to the enema since its not available in that form in the states. Anyone familiar with this or the drug in general? He says it has a little steroid and would be a substitute for rowasa if it seems that i am allergic to it and it causes D since I've had it for while now. Thanks all!
