Azathioprine Reviews

Show: for
I had difficult side effects the first two months; headache, nausea, and severe joint pain. I \t take a few months before Azathioprine begins to work. When it finally started to help w/ the UC, I had to stop because of poor liver tests.
Working / Worked
Stopped taking it but helped keep my liver under control while i was taking it only stopped because I was started on Cellcept which has the same function.
just started in place of MTX
Working / Worked
Ive been taking this drug for several months now and at first I had one or two days of abdominal cramping but otherwise it has been find. This drug was added to my treatment regimine by Dr. Yazici at the Behcets center in NYC
100mg a day. They put me on this in late August early September, they stopped and started it a couple of times due to my liver functions fluctuating. Side effects for me, dizziness occasionally,ithcy skin, hair has thinned out a little. need to get my vision retested soon as it has gotten worse since July
Working / Worked
It's working for me, I had side effect when i start taking it untill I decide to take it before going to bed

I've been on this for over a year! It has been a life saver!
working well with Humira to get me closer to remission, I think it got rid of the Chronic Pouchitis I had... now changing to Remicade and will continue with this aka Imuran
