I have Crohns disease and was recently taken off remicade due to a side affect. My doctor has prescribed Imuran. I am worried about all the side affects and looking for some info. from anyone taking Imuran.
I personally haven't taken Imuran for ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease ... the link below have reviews which you may find useful.
I am in the same boat as you are. I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2010 and was put on Pred then Humaria. I finally a few months ago, went off the Humaria because I could no longer take the side effects and was put on Imuran 100mg. I have not started it yet because I am afraid it's going to make me sick like the Humaria. Once I start this medicine, I have to have blood drawn once a week for a month or so to make sure it hasn't affected my liver, because its highly toxic to the liver.
I wish you the best of luck and please feel free to correspond with me anytime. If you start it, let me know how you do or visa versa, I know that I have to do something soon.
