Possibly starting Entyvio

Hi folks,

Looking for some advice/stories of experiences of being on Entyvio.

I was on infliximab for 3 years and while it worked well for my bowels, I got a lot of unpleasant side effects. I was tired all the time, did not sleep well, got a fungal nail infection in my toe and my tongue was constantly covered in bacteria. It also affected my vision. In short i struggled to work and enjoy life as I was so knackered all the time so I asked to be taken off it.

My last infusion was in April and I've not been on any medication since . My medical team have now suggested I try Entyvio. I am open to being on a new medication but I am concerned that if I go on anther biologic, I'll end up feeling like I did on infliximab and I'll be back to square one!

Any help/advice you can give would be very much appreciated!
