Immuran took me about 5 months to notice a difference.I'm on 100mg. I was on pred when I started though. Taking Immuran made me really bloated at first..really. I hated it! Called my Dr. and told him I didn't like the Immuran and wanted to try something else. He said all my numbers were looking good and to continue. My stomach was always gurgling and just felt weird. After about 5 months it smoothed out. Wonder what it would be like to go off now...?? Can't ...but wonder. I've been on it for 4 years now. Stick with it...it does get better.
