Hi folks, just a quick? hahaha question.  I just noticed this morning that my pain seems to be going away.  It feels almost good!! or at least, almost normal for me.  I've been on the Imuran now for 1 month.  Is that long enough for it to be working?  I see my GI doc next week.My tummy is still sore but not near like it was.  YEA!!!!!!!  Thanks for the replies and thanks soooooo much for lettiing me vent.  WE all need that sometimes, I just hate to do it myself.  I've always and always been the care-giver,  never the care-needer!!!  That is why it is so hard for me I guess.  I take the daug. to the ob doc today for her checkup, I'll give you all an update on her later.  The other daug gets out of the hosp today, I've heard that I will have the pleasure of 2 granddaus for about a week while she recupes.  We'll see.    CURLEY,  I am only about 50 miles west of knox. on I40.  The sounthern tip of Morgan county, just up the mountain from roane county.  Know the area?????  Who is your GI doc?????   See you folks later,        granna

Hey we have something in common granna i've been on Imuran for a month as of yesterday too! LOL
I'm still having pain, gas tho but no other issues. I'm hoping the pain will go away, but for all I know it could be from the pred i'm on.
It's hard to say what remission is, every person has a different view on that.

Imuran can take "up to" 4-6 months to fully kick in, it may be possbile its kicking in now, but I don't know if it fully has.
How many mg are you on btw? I'm on 75mg now, soon 150mg, but I dunno if i'm getting a step up first to 100mg.
Best of luck to you and everyone! :)

Hi folks, I'm only on 50mg Imuran right now, with alternating 20mg pred one day then 10mg the next. Hope to taper more next week when I see doc. What scares me is that I read all of you on higher doses of Imuran or other meds and I wonder if my doc is doing what he needs to do. He hasn't said yet if or when he will up the Imuran. Thanks for the replies. Granna

Well generally it depends on your weight and they determine your dose that way, some respond to low doses tho, the lower the better they hope for :)
