    Anyone dealing with uveitis/retinal vasculitis?

    Hi there,

    I suffer from uveitis for 11 years now. I have been on steroid drops the whole time and even though I get severe attacks once/twice a year and each time they worsen. In addition, I also have vasculitis now and the doctors I see have me start taking high dosage of steroid tablets. The recovery is super slow and they insist I start taking immunosuppressants as well. Does anyone have experience with this disease? ANY information would be highly appreciated! God Bless!

    Anyone taking Azathioprine? Please help!

    Hi all, I am suffering from uveitis and vasculitis for the last 11 years and have been treated with steroid pills. Now the doctors want to add a second agent: Azathioprine. I read that Azathioprine is listed as a human carcinogen and am very nervous about starting it. If someone has had it or is currently taking it, please share some feedback. Thank you so much!
