Hi all,
I have been on 150mg of Azathioprine for a couple of years now. Wondering if anyone has had any long term or short term side effects. I definitely noticed my hair thinning when I first started taking it, but I think it has mostly grown back (I catch myself thinking- was it always that thin? lol).
Anything else?

I was on it for 3 yrs before I had to stop because of elevated liver levels. During that time, I didn't notice any side effects. I did have the hair thining in the beginning also but that was only an issue for a couple of months. And I had fatigue and nausea but once I switched to taking it at night, that was no longer an issue.

I go through bouts of hair loss, but honestly think mine is from the CD flares. That is really the only time it is more hair than usual. I have been on 150mg for years. No problems I am aware of.
