Question regarding Budesonide/ Entocort

I have been on Remicade every 6 weeks for few years now. Recently I had few mini flares and then a full flare wo weeks ago so my GI put me on Entocort/ Budesonide, 9 mg pe day and 6MP 50 mg per day. I started them last Wednesday. So it is 5 days now. It has definitely helped but sometimes I am having cramps and urgencies to go. Urgencies to go are much better though. Is this normal with Budesonide? For those of you who took it, how long did it take to go to full effect? My Crohn's is in my ileum.

For my ileal Crohn's it took about two weeks for the budesonide to fully kick in.
