Is cortizone (hydrocortisone) creme as effective as cortizone (hydrocortisone) injections? Please advise!

The reason we use creams instead of giving everyone cortisone pills or shots is that they do not cause steroid related side effects as often or as severely. Side effects form cortisone shots can include weight gain, increased appetite, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, effects on bone health, and increased blood sugar. ...Read more
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?
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

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
