Returning to Entyvio after 6 months

I need help and hope you can provide that. My doctor stopped Entyvio after a serious bout of pneumonia. That was in December. I am getting chronic colitis and need to get back on treatment. Entyvio is my only choice right now due to various reasons. My doctor wants me on Singulair for a week prior and prednisone the day before and morning of to prevent an allergic reaction. I am very nervous- I am prone to URI as well. I am due to resume next week. Any feedback positive or negative would be gratefully received.
Thank you

Ask your doctor about testing for antibodies before going back on Entyvio

Did you have the Prevnar13 vaccine prior to taking Entyvio? If not, did you get it on your 6 month break?

I have not been tested lately for the antibodies so will check on that. Thanks
Prevar? Is that for pneumonia? Yes if so I had that. Then developed pneumonia 3 months later. I have asthma and am prone to upper respiratory infections.

Thanks so much

There is also a 23 valent pnemonia vaccine you should have received after the prevnar13.

Thank you. I had both vaccines. I start Entyvio tomorrow. I am taking anti-histamine and Prednisone as pre med. Appreciate your assistance.
