Imuran Vs. Entyvio

Hi,

I was diagnosed with CD about 5 years ago and was on Humira for a few years until I developed permanent dark spots on the injection sites. For the past year, I have been on supplements. Just recently, I have started having stomach cramps/pains again. Those are the only symptoms that I am experiencing right now. My dr. wants me to go on Entyvio or Imuran. I read some forums on Entyvio and it seems like there are some pretty scary side effects from it. I know each drug affects everyone differently, but just wondering if others had any advice as to which drug they would choose??

Thank you so much in advance for your comments.

Gina
