Treatment

Crohn's disease and my second injection of Entyvio

  • By MattHilley

    I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in February. However after another doctor performed a second colonoscopy, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s. I spent 7 days in the hospital and was given an injection of Remicade. It went well and I was released. When the next injection was due I had a severe allergic reaction and treatment was stopped only 20 minutes into it. My doctor took precautions the next time, but I still had an allergic reaction. The next week my doctor had it approved for me to get Entyvio. I had no problem with this medication. Yesterday I had my second dose. Everything went well. I am not sure, but I haven’t seen many people on this medication yet. I felt a little better a week after my first dose. I was just wondering has anyone had Entyvio, and how long it took to feel good?

    Hi MattHilley,

    Thanks so much for reaching out to us! I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis and the allergic reaction you had. While not as a result of a medication, I’ve had severe allergic reactions, too, and it’s pretty scary! We actually have a sister site for Crohn’s disease here: https://crohnsdisease.com. Additionally, someone also posted in their forums about Entyvio here: https://crohnsdisease.com/topic/entyvio/. This site has a ton of great information that I hope you find helpful.
