I just started Imuran and has been so fatigued that I have been falling asleep in my chair. I normally can make it until about
three and then it starts to set in. I even found myself closing my eyes at the library last night while I was waiting for my son to finish looking, lol. I laugh because it reminds me of my dad. All of this is only after a mo on the drug at a low dose (50 mg)....my GI says it is normal though expecially with all the other drugs.
Have you tried melatonion? It is a natural alternative that my pharmacy tech says will just make me feel more sleepy (which after I am in bed it doesn't matter). It is to help promote a deeper sleep. I am giving it a shot:)
