Well, I am 8 weeks into Entyvio and it may be failing me.
I was in a very mild but long term flare when starting Entyvio 8 weeks ago and I seemed to respond to it almost immediately. I was able to eat whatever I wanted with no reprucssions and even dropped a few of the supplements I have been taking for ages with no ill effect. The positive effects were most pronounced between weeks 2-6 but started trailing off. Over the last two weeks and especially the last 48 hours, I've had more cramping, dull aching pain in my abdomen, stools have lost all formation, just mush or diarrhea and am once again super sensitive to the foods I eat.
Called docs office, they ordered four different stool tests, I assume it is FCP plus other tests to check for bugs. I submitted yesterday, will see what they come back with.
SUPER disappointing that this drug doesn't seem like it is going to work
