In this video from Lifey Health, a Crohn’s disease patient talks about some of the medications she uses to help control the symptoms of her disease.
She talks about how the medications were taken, the common side effects associated with the different drugs and how effective they were at treating her Crohn’s disease. Many Crohn’s disease medications work by suppressing the immune system, so this leaves the patient vulnerable to picking up infections and viruses, other drugs can have side effects such as acne, sleeping disorders, fatigue and even cancer.
