Entocort (budesonide) is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation..

Budesonide is used to treat mild to moderate Crohn's disease.

Taking steroids long term can cause many side effects such as skin thinning, decrease in bone density, increase in weight, glaucoma, cataracts and many other problems. This is probably why your doctor doesn't want you to be on Entocort long term.
