I've been on Entyvio every 8 weeks since the summer. It def has helped, but i would say only to about 65-70%, which is much better than the 0% I was getting from Humira & Azathroprine.

My new doctor isn't happy with the entyvio at 8 weeks but doesnt necessarily want me to come off of it because we have gotten a reaction when no other medication has gotten me to this point so we decided to bump me up to every 6 weeks.

I was curious if anyone has been on Entyvio at 8 weeks before moving up to 6 weeks? Curious to see if your symptoms got better or anything like that. I'm hopeful because I like entyvio, havent gotten side effects from it like 6mp and others, so I'm hopeful this is the dosage that can get me to remission.

Are you only on entyvio at this point? I ask as combination-therapy is often produces the best results for us. Since you had a reaction with 6mp, had you considered adding oral and rectal-route mesalamine to the entyvio? Might give you the extra boost you need.
