I took both Imuran and Remicade together. In fact I started Imuran 4 days before my first infusion. Of course, at that time it was considered beneficial to be on both at the same time because there was evidence that it reduced the chance of infusion reactions. Now there is some concern about
people being on both at the same time because of a greater risk of developing ?? I am drawing a blank as to the issue - and can't find it now - my darn lupus brain fog.
I was on Remicade for 2.5 years. I have been taking Imuran for 4.5 years. Remicade put my Crohn's into remission and I believe that Imuran has kept it that way. I saw my GI today and he said he has others that have maintained remission on Imuran for quite a long time.
I will be interested in what your GI says. I hope you can get things resolved quickly.
