Hi all! It's been a very long time since I last posted. To catch everyone up, my son is now 18 months old (and so, SO much fun!), and I was in remission until 2 months ago. Hence, my lack of posting in the last year or so, I guess. Life is so busy and too, too good when you are feeling good.
Anyway, I am in a flare. This is one of the more milder flares I have had symptom-wise, but it is definitely the most stubborn. I am taking 12 Asacol per day plus am on an 8 week taper of Prednisone.
Long story short, I am now down to 20 mg of Pred every day from 40 mg, and my symptoms are starting to return. They went away while on the higher dose of Pred but have now returned. I saw my GI yesterday, and he wants to add Entocort now along with the Prednisone. We are also discussing going to 6-mp, but that isn't my question here. I will save that topic for a separate post.
My question is... has anyone taken Prednisone and Entocort at the same time? Did it work for you? Any issues? I tolerate both well but have never taken them together.
Thanks for your help!
