I was steroid-dependent and on Entocort for several years. It helped me a lot. Supposedly it produces fewer of the long-term side effects. And I'm pretty sure it's FDA-approved for UC, because my insurance covered it.
Left-sided UC diagnosed 2001. Taking Colazal and Imuran, Remicade infusions and moving into remission. Finally off steroids after four years!
Now in remission for almost two years. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
