i tried it for a few months and didnt have any changes or improvements so i stopped as its $200 for me.
doctor wants me to go on it for maintenance when i get pregnant as i stopped the imuran for that reason.
so i will be trying it again next year.
entocort for me is called budesonide over here in australia.
