I got pancreatitis on 6mp after 2 years of taking it, and my dr. said I could not take Imuran either. He switched me to Methotrexate often used in Rheumatoid Arthritis as an immunosuppressant. I haven't had the problems with pancreas and it. I use a combination of Cimzia, Methotrexate, Folic Acid, and Omeperazole and am doing better than I have in 16 years with GI symptoms. I've developed Pyoderma Gangrenosum (skin condition with Crohn's) and it's been a whole new hell. Good luck to you.
