I have been on entocort off and on since 2012 due to gastro diverticulitis (highly flammable). After a colonopscopy in Sept. 2012 I was given entocort for 3 a day-1 mo., then 2 a day-1 mo., then 1 a day-1 mo. Then on Feb. 7th, 2013 I fell on cement and was taken to a hospital by helicopter. They kept me alive due to help from the Dr.'s at University of Ky. Hospital -Lexington, Ky. Then later they gave me prescription budesonide ec 3mg. 1 per day. After another colonopscopy on 9/24/17 they ruled it as diverticulitis w/colitis again. Recently they changed my script to budesonide 3mg with the drug co. listed as MYLAN 7155- NO EC letters listed on the script. My question is: Is this sufficient or as good as the ENTOCORT EC 3-mg. in your opinion? This is my question about this prescription drug as I deal with the problem day by day w/ appointments with a gastroenterologist abt. ever 3-month's. I am 70 years old now and I live by myself as my husband is a disabled 100% service connected army veteran and he is in a Veterans' home for daily care over a year now. Please answer my questions if possible. Thank You!

Budesonide is actually the active ingredient in Entocort, so it is the same medication, just the generic version. The EC just refers to the medication being enteric coated to help protect your stomach from possible irritation that it might cause, such as nausea, heartburn, ulceration, and gastritis.

I am very sorry about everything you've been dealing with, including not having your husband at home, I know that has to be very tough.

How are you feeling?
