Were u feeling sick before you went on aziothioprine (Imuran)? Or did it occur a few days after going on it?
When did you start the prednisone btw? It should kick in within 4 days or so, it helped my stomach pain, D and gas go away (but still have some pain and gas here and there).
Pretty much all CD drugs have bad effects when used long term, and most increase your chances of cancer or something else.
But the benefits outweigh the risks and thats why were given these meds. I can tell you now prednisone is one of the worse for long term use, it works well but has a lot side effects short and long term.
Best of luck :)
