    Comment:
    Side effects of muscle pain/weakness, itching and stomach pain/cramping have increased. Been on this for 3 months, bloodwork shows it is working, but my body does not. Nausea and increased diarrhea do not help. Seems I am taking this medication to satisfy my dr., but I don't see any noticeable results.

    I have crohns disease and I have been on this drug for 6 yrs. It has kept me in remission the whole time. I recently when off of in in hopes of having a family. The doctor said it would thake 4-6 weeks to get out of my system. Week 5 brought on a mild flare up. So, back on aza and and entocort I went. My questions now all revolve around the safety of taking this drug while being pregnant?
