Other steroids worked much better at getting me energy again but the side effects of those weren't worth it. If those made me feel "GREAT" this one is just "OK".

Comment:
I was on Entocort in 2009 and I felt it did not help my symptoms at all. My Dr put me back on Entocort after my colonoscopy four days after I started taking it again I woke up and my ankles were very sore and I could barely walk. It went away after a few days but the following week I woke up and my right ankle was so swollen I could not walk. I went to the ER and had X-rays done and they said I ha ... Show Full Comment
