I just started imuran a week ago and now I've got a fever. They ran some lab work and my wbc count and rdw,rbc and platelets are above the standard range. Another one shows neutrophils % manual count is high, and lymphocytes % manual count is low. I don't get to talk to my doc til tomorrow.

Could this be because of the imuran and will they take me off of it, do you think? I don't have any other signs of infection anywhere, but obviously the colitis is flaring badly. I've been on pred for awhile. I was running low fevers before the imuran at times, but this time I really feel sick and wouldn't be able to push myself to work. Luckily I had today off.

I think I have tenesmus. Is there anything to help with that?

Thanks for your help.

When I started immuran I to developed a fever.  It would happen precisely 8 hours after I took the immuran, and followed this pattern for 3 days and my GI said discontinue the med immediately.  My fever was 104, my teeth were chattering, and by day 3 I was sick to my stomach and I felt like my legs wouldn't hold me up.  In fact my husband had to help me to the bathroom.
Take care and I hope you see your GI soon.
