I just started seeing a new doctor for my Crohn's Disease and he wants me to start taking mercaptopurine as well as Remicaid. I have read about the medicines and don't know if I should take both. I do have anal fistulas that the remicaid is prescribed for so I know I will start that but need advice on the other one. can anybody relate to this.
I have been taking Remicade and Mercaptopurine together for severe Crohn's for the last 8 years and have had no issues with any drug interactions between the 2. The 6MP works in conjunction with the Remicade. Just be sure your Dr is doing bloodwork every 3-6 months to check organ functions.
