I was diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis 4 years ago and given entocort ec for treatment. Will it ever go away for good or is it a lifelong illness?

Unclear: The long term prognosis is not known in this rare condition. My hunch would be that yes, you will likely be on some form of treatment for the long run. But only your GI doctor can answer that question fully. Ask him or her on your next visit. ...Read more

Could you take ibuprofen (an nsaid) and bupropion (steroid) if you are taking entocort (a corticosteroid)?

Could you take ibuprofen (an nsaid) and bupropion (steroid) if you are taking entocort (a corticosteroid)?

Yes: bupropion is not a steroid, and I am not aware of any contraindications to your drug combinations, but would just express some concern that steroids increase the chances of stomach ulcers and bleeding, and NSAIDs may worsen this. Talk to your doctor about using something to protect your stomach (sucralfate, prilosec and others) if stomach upset is present, or even as prevention. ...Read more

Is it safe to receive Pneumococcal & flu vaccines whilst on entocort, also due to start Azathioprine soon... is this a problem ?(Treatment res sprue)

They are safe: When patients are on immunosuppressive we strongly recommend that you stay caught up on vaccines. Both vaccines you are speaking about are non live vaccines and are safe to take while you are on Entocort and Azathioprine. Both vaccines require some time to become fully protective so get them sooner then later Good luck. ...Read more

Bleeding a week after takin e.C pill no clue wether its early periods cuz am expecting them a week later for how bleeding is supppsed to last?Help :(

Bleeding: Birth control pills are known to cause breakthrough vaginal bleeding, so if you are taking real pills (not sugar ones), then it should not be your period but rather breakthrough bleeding.

I had sex with my boyfriend last night and took Take Action about two hours after. Does the EC work even if on first day of ovulation? I'm irregular.

I had sex with my boyfriend last night and took Take Action about two hours after. Does the EC work even if on first day of ovulation? I'm irregular.

Usually works, but: Emergency contraception pills (such as Plan B, Next Choice, or Take Action) can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which the pills were taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, to confirm non-pregnancy. Pregnancy is not likely, because emergency contraception pills work most of the time. ...Read more

How to determine the allergic factor in eosinophilic cystitis (ec)? What kind of test is this to understand the allergic story of ec?

How to determine the allergic factor in eosinophilic cystitis (ec)? What kind of test is this to understand the allergic story of ec?

Still unknown: To date, we do not have a means to determine cause for ec. But the good news is there are useful treatments. In a large review of 135 cases, van den ouden (2000) found trans urethral resection combined with corticosteroids, antihistaminics, or antibiotics was the best treatment. In neonates and young children the disease can be self-limited and observation is justified (al-omar et al, 2005). ...Read more

No one knows: There is no way to predict the right answer. It all depends on your chemistry and your hormones. Remember you must be extra vigilant in protecting against unwanted pregnancy during this time. And, it is always better to be responsible and get on routine and regular birth control than to use ec. ...Read more
