Entocort for Crohn's Disease
The prescription drug Entocort® EC (budesonide EC) is approved for Crohn's disease that is mild to moderate in nature and for cases where the disease has been in remission for at least three months. In addition, it can only be taken by people in whom the last part of the small intestine (the ileus) is affected by Crohn's.
Keep in mind that Entocort EC can be used to control flares of Crohn's disease, but it cannot cure the condition. Your healthcare provider may recommend certain dietary and lifestyle changes along with this medication.
