Entyvio


Wed, November 06, 2019 3:19 PM

I was diagnosed in 2012 with UC. Since then I have tried Sulfasalazine, 5-ASA, steroids, and currently am using Humira. Nothing has ever made any difference in my symptoms and now my GI is recommending Entyvio. I am hesitant though as I have read many horror stories about side effects with this drug. Does anyone have personal experience with Entyvio they wouldn't mind sharing with me? I feel like I don't have many options left and would like to feel more confident in my choice. 

Thanks!

I have been on Entyvio for a year and according to my doctor I am now in remission. I have had no issues or side affects from Entyvio. I hope you have the same outcome from taking this drug.

I haven’t had any problems with entyvio other than psoriasis, which is not listed in the possible side effects, but is for remicade which I used to be on.  They are similar drugs so i’ll blame the entyvio.  I’ve had psoriasis for years but this is much worse. It started in my feet and worked its way up my legs, plus on my forearms.
