Has Anyone Ever Taken Entocort EC?? I'm Scared
I have wrote on here before when I was first diagnosed in November 2007. The GI doctor I have been seeing was horrible and my primary care doctor sent me to another GI specialist a couple of weeks ago. He did some blood work and a test to see if it was definatly crohns disease because the other GI doctor started to think it was celiac disease because I have no pain in my stomach (just constant loose stools for over 2 years now).
Anyway, I'm seeing a new GI doctor who is very nice and seems to be much better then the last one. He scheduled for me to have a colonoscopy on December 16th (even though I had One in the beginning of this year but I guess he wants to see for himself and he wants to do a biopsy). Well, he called me last friday to let me know my blood work came back and everything looked good but the test he did for crohn's was positive. He told me he wanted to start me on Entocort and called it in to the pharmacy. I went to pick it up but after reading the side effects I am so scared to take it. I have to see him next week so he can see how I am doing on it and I haven't started it yet.
Is there anyone out there that has taken this medication? If so what should I expect as far as side effects because I am really scared. The only medication I have had to take since I have been diagnosed was Asacol. He wants me to take 9 mg. a day (which is 3 pills in the morning).
