OK so with everyones help here and some great peole at my local support group this week, I am ready to start imuran/6mp therapy. Supposedly 6mp is less costly than imuran, but one woman told me she developed pancreatitis from 6mp and has no problems with imuran now.
These are virtually the same meds so does one have a higher risk of pancreatitis than the other?
Are there any other side effects that are more prevalent in one than the other?
GI keeps using the word Imuran, but I don't know that he has a preference until I see him in mid November.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
