Hello all. I was just recently diagnosed with LC after getting really sick after Christmas. I lost 20 pounds and nothing was helping. I am coming up on my 4th week on Entocort. I have seen an improvement, but I am still taking 1 loperimide every day with it. I also tested negative for celiac. So far the only side effects I have noticed on the entocort is excessive thirst and a runny nose. Nothing I can't handle. I am glad to have found this forum and hope to be doing lots of learning about this condition.
