I wasn't able to use it during my last flare because I am pregnant and it is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
my GI told me that when i get pregnant he wants me to go on entocort (budesonide in australia) to keep my flare under control.
im not on it now cuz im on 50mg of pred, but i plan on getting pregnant very soon and he said that i will need to go on it.
a maintenance dose along with my mesalazine.
budesonide/entocort does not get absorbed by the body like prednisone does so it is safer for pregnancy than the prednisone/steriods. it supposedly goes straight to work on the colon.
i've used budesonide/entocort before for about 3 months and i stopped as it is $200 a bottle. got a little spendy and i wasnt seeing any results. so im not sure how good it works.
but im wondering about the whole pregnancy thing and who is right...
should i take it or not while pregnant?
