I take 150 mg each day. I have not had any prob. since I started taking it three years ago. I was nausuated
to begin with until I realized the best time to take it is right before you go to bed- Then you can sleep the nausua off.
Good Luck!!!

I was on Imuran for a little more than 2 years. To be honest with you, I'm not sure if it helped. A lot of research is now suggesting that it might not even really prevent antibodies from developing if you are also taking Remicade.

In my case, like everyone else, started out with 50. But I kept relapsing, and even after surgery, I was pushed up to 250. Didn't do anything. My blood tests showed that I wasn't even getting anywhere with it. For this reason, I urge regular blood tests to make sure you're not anemic or at risk for lymphoma, but also to make sure you're actually absorbing the drug...or else you could waste a lot of time the way I did.

I didn't have any side effects from it. My hair didn't thin out or anything, no nausea or tiredness except for it reached 250. Make sure to take folic acid with this med..I didn't and am sort of paying a price for it.

Thanks all, when he first told me I was kinda of scared of it, Been pn Asacol, Pentesa with no relief. When I lived in Tx they let me get a handicapped plate for fast runs into restrooms, but moved to Colo and no dice.
So now hate to leave home.
