Imuran

Hi

It's been awhile since my last post. I have been taking Imuran for two years now. I have had only one flare in that time. However I'm thinking I might be heading to another one.

My question is about the use of Imuran and it's effectiveness for UC, and long term side affects.

Thanks

(They also suspect MS as well)

Re: Imuran

It's been suggested to me that I start taking Imruran for my Crohn's Disease. Have you had any side effect issues or other problems using it?

Re: Imuran

Hi

I have been taking Imuran for over 2 years. Side effects have been limited. Some hair thinning, and fatigue are the two biggest ones for me. The first year I caught everything ynder the sun ie: sore throats, flu, colds, bladder infections. I have had one flare up while still being this drug.

Things have leveled off for me and things are stable once again.

Good luck with it

Ps I take 150mg/day
