Uceris

I have just been started on this treatment. How does one wean off since you only take one pill?

You can talk one every other day for one to two weeks and then stop.

Why Prednisone? Uceris has less side effects.

Ahh. Why not entocort? That's for small intestine.

Uceris releases in the colon whereas entocort releases in the small intestine.

If your CD (or UC) is primarily located in the colon then Uceris is the correct medication for taking budesonide. If the CD is primarily located in the small bowel, particularly the terminal ileum, then Entocort is the correct formulation of budesonide.
