Hi all,
After me trying to see if the pentasa/entocort combo could put me in remission after 4 months I am now defeated and quivering to the gi doc that I will try the azasan.  I am so afraid of the drug as I have seen my daughter, who had leukemia, spend so much time in the hospital because of neutropenia caused by the 6mp.  Yes, I know it was a different situation, but it scared me none the on Dec. 26th I will start the 6mp in hopes to get rid of my pain and diarrhea.  The Gi said it could take up to 3 months...I was hoping it might be quicker but for all out there on the 6mp did anyone have relief earlier???

Hi Christine, I am on Imuran which is a 6MP drug for over 2 years and i havee no-side effects from the drug. Your Gi doctor will do blood test on you. I hope the 6mp works for you.
