Nephew 4 years old

Hi my nephew has a form of crohns now been told her needs to start azathioprine my sister is really concerned about him starting this drugs and the side affects ? Has anyone else taken these ? Has it worked ? He is currently on steroids but still suffering with cramps and pink stools
 
If he is 4 I would look for a second opinion from an expert in paediatric very early onset Crohn’s. Are you in the USA? I’m surprised they haven’t suggested EEN in the first instance.
