first time for budesonide

Hi All,
First time poster here.
My doctor prescribed 6 mg of budesonide for me. Is there any possible side effects I should be wary of?
Alot of times I have negative reactions to new medicines I am prescribed. This is the first time I am taking something for my Crohns.
As I am anxious about taking this. Can any body calm my fears or tell me why I should or should not take it?
Much appreciated for any feedback.
Also does anybody know what is considered a low dose and a high dose of this medication is ? And what is considered the normal starting dose ?
