Re: Starting Imuran
Hope it's not too late to respond, but I just saw your post today. I've been on Imuran for several months now and it's helping with my symptoms. I don't have kidney problems (except for one short flare) but I've read that it's the drug of choice for helping control kidney/lupus problems. I agree that you need to see another doctor at this point. Kidney involvement is serious and even if your current doctor isn't really giving up on you, a second opinion is valuable, and if she is, a second opinion is vital.
Side effects I had are stomach issues, but eating a small tub of Activia every day stopped that problem. Be sure to start slowly and work your way up to your final dose if you do start Imuran.
