My PA (can never get in to see the doctor anymore) was very reluctant to put me on predisone, so she insisted I try entocort first--9mg. I didn't have high hopes for it, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I've been using this for 7 days and haven't seen even the slightest improvement. Didn't expect to be symptom free, but expected something to improve. Do I need to give it more time?
My symptoms are always different every time I have a flare. This time, it's every other day. I seem to totally empty out one day, and the next I'm fine since I get empty. Then the cycle starts all over again. I'm also doing the rectal foam at the same time and it's not working either. I'm not able to retain enemas due to excessive gas.
