What were the symptoms? I just started Imuran and my GI said this was a big concern, but he didn't tell me what to look out for. Can he tell if I have this just by monitoring my blood? Thanks.

catpower - I fixed your subject heading. I think the autofix feature that screens for forbidden words, picked up a misspell and converted it to astericks.

To your question - drug-induced pancreatitis can occur in those taking Imuran, but the percentage is small. To see the symptoms of pancreatitis, go here:
