I am only a few days past my first infusion, but so far no cough. Upper respiratory illness is a common side effect, though. Would recommend visiting a GP if it persists and nothing helps.

I always find a teaspoon of honey or tea with honey to be soothing when I have a cough/sore throat.
Diagnosed in with Crohn's in large and small bowel in 2000.

After 4 treatments we had to stop completly entyvio. The cough got so bad and nobody knew how to controll or minimize. Did visit every possible specialist. After 2 months without entyvio cough eaze up and we did start infusion's again. Now we are on 6 treatment and no cough, just minimal.
The other side effect: hair thinning
knee swelling and pain
So far ok, just did all tests and going to see GI in few days
