Am currenty taking 100mg of this, my consultant says it works

Has allowed me to stay off of Prednisone for the most part
Working / Worked
After home sick for week and diagnosis of bacterial virus went back to work only to have boss send me to ER for jaundice that showed up in eyes within short time at work. MRI and CAT SCAN showed my gall bladder is INSIDE my liver. Blood count showed bilirubin off the charts and enzyme levels dangerous. Biopsy showed that if I were to get worse transplant would be necessary to save my life. I had NO PAIN craved sugar and fatty foods even though NOT HUNGRY. Extreme Fatigue.
Working / Worked
Am on it now. Doesn't seem to be doing much.
Saved me from surgery. Helped me with a major flare up and my Doctor said it was his last resort before surgery!
I cant tell if it is the prednisone or the azathioprine.
Was taken off of this due to pancreatitis attacks and poor liver function test results.
Working / Worked
It worked while I was on it. I was able to stop taking the medicine. I haven't taken it in 7 years.
