My son has been on modulen for 6 weeks now and has to continue for another two weeks. Our consultant had today said we are to start him on Azathioprine. I'm so concerned as he is only 8 years old and as much as I do not want him to have to live with effects of the crohns which at times has been awful I'm so scared of all of the side effects and long term effects of the medication. Also reading on here that you can only take it for so long what happens then? The doctor has reassured me that it is the lesser evil of the two and will enable him to lead a normal life and without it she thinks he will continue to have flare ups and be ill. Part of me wants him to have it but also a big part of me doesn't want to put him at any risk and as much as I know there are risks with every medication the risks such as cancers are really making me panic !!! Has anyone's child been on Azathioprine
