I don't remember having a massive appetite on entocort but it was insatiable on prednisolone, the food didn't even touch the sides as it went down lol.

I am currently on Entocort. My nutritionist (who has gotten her Crohns in remission) has me on this multivitamin called Garden of Life Perfect Weight. They seem to help by giving me a content feeling. I don't over or under eat with them.

I have had a pretty big appetite on entocort but I think it was really bc it calmed my flare and I had been losing weight fast, had no appetite, and was beginning to become malnourished. Although, if prednisone makes people hungry, then it would make sense that entocort could have the same side effect in some people since its pretty much a modified version of the same thing. Entocort may have done something to my appetite but it definitely gives me headaches and acne....
