Hi, @uconn, and thanks for posting this question about Entiviyo (vedolizumab). I’d like to introduce you to some others who’ve talked about ulcerative colitis, like @lisabeans, @kates56, @barens2, @secd, @lynnes, @cdancer2, @christo56, and @sherw, who may have some helpful insights on this medication for you.

You also may want to check out this thread on ulcerative colitis in our Digestive Health group on Mayo Clinic Connect:https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/recurring-diverticulitis-colitis/bookmark/?ajax_hook=action&_wpnonce=6ce6cd701b.

I’d also encourage you to look at the Mayo Clinic blog on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), where Mayo Clinic experts discuss research, current events and treatment strategies for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease: http://ibdblog.mayoclinic.org.

How long have you had this condition?

Hi @uconn, I have never taken Entiviyo for UC. I have had UC for about 30 years. Currently, I am having a flare up, so I am taking Prednisone. In addition, regularly, I take Balsalazide. I also take Linzess for IBS-C. Prednisone works for me when I start having problems with the UC. Good luck to you in finding the best medication for your UC.
