Can entocort 6mg work instead of 9mg?

Hi

I wonder if 6mg entocort can work instead of 9mg?
I get ear pressure of 5asa and entocort it seems.
Maybe 6mg will work on a day, but 9 will be too much i think.
Are here people on 6mg for months?

Everyone is different.
Entocort works by targeting inflammation in the terminal ileum and colon. Do you know if you have inflammation there?

You cannot make assumptions with this disease. Are there plans for you to have testing?
