Ive just been prescribed Entocort. I know its not as "intense" as far as side effects as Pred is, but my question is ---will it leach calcium out of the body like Pred does? And also, literature online says that you can only take it for a few months but my Dr says you can take it long term- like for years. Is this true? Can you take for for years and years without too many side effects? And one more question--- how long should I expect to wait before seeing some results? My crohn's right now is mild/moderate.
