Steroids and hot tub?

Does anyone know of any reason going in a hot tube would be a bad idea while on entocort? Wondering about blood pressure issues.

Don't exceed 20 minutes at a time. Do you have a history of blood pressure issues?

yeh they say dont exceed 15-20mins as it could cause your body temp to rse to dangerous levels. They also say be cautious if you have heart disease, diabetes, or high or low blood pressure.

Apart from that takign the drug you mentioned should have no ill effects on going in a hot tub, as with anything, if you feel light headed or any other problems get out
