You don't have to wait to start Entyvio. It is a completely different drug than Remicade. I had my last Remicade dose on June 13, first Entyvio dose on July 23, and I'm currently also taking 40mg of prednisone.
Interestingly enough, I think it may have been Clindamycin that tipped me over the edge as well. I have had not much success with anything so far and have been on prednisone way too much but it is the only thing that has really helped at this point. I developed antibodies to the Remicade by the 3rd loading dose and it cause a lupus like reaction. Hoping I can get it out of my system sooner rather than later although I also had good trough levels before the first maintenance dose. :-/
I was encouraged by the studies on indigo and have ordered some isatis cooling. Will let you know if it helps!
