This could be a couple of things. How long ago did you start the imuran? It could be a reaction. I went through the same thing and they took me off of it (I have to update my signature) and put me on methylpred. If it is a reaction to the imuran you just kind of have to wait out the vomiting. Though if it continues (give it a few hours), go to the ER.

250mg of Imuran! OMG...that sounds like such a high dose! I don't think I've heard of anyone over 150mg! How long have you been on that dose? And how long after taking the Imuran did you start vomiting?

Megamax - How much do you weigh? The reason I ask is that I agree with Broomhilda that your dose sounds high. In Crohn's, the standard range of Imuran is 1 to 2.5 mg per kilogram of body weight. I weigh about 124 and take 75 mg of Imuran daily. I was prescribed 100 mg daily but was having issues at that amount.

Also, if you are still vomiting, having pain or any other unusal symptom, please go to the ER. Imuran can cause isssues with the pancreas in some rare instances. This is nothin to try to will away or ignore hoping it gets better. It's best to err on the side of caution.

Please let us know how you are doing.
