Hi My name is Giselle and i am 25 i was diagnosed in 2001 Since then i was with inmuran 50 mg and deltasone 4-8 mg
My question is about pregnancy. Because i have 2 versions about taking inmuran, one of them is that i can leave it after i get pregnant and other before i know get pregnant.
I am really terrified of being without inmuran because i dont know which will be the reaction of my body---And also i am terrified because the side effect can be in my body although i take off the inmuran.
(sorry for my english but i am a spanish :)
CAn anyone tell me a good story about the pregnancy taking inmuran...(i read about malformation) :(

I am really worry!!!!

thanks for all

Giselle

Giselles, welcome to the forum.  We have quite a few people here with AIH who are on Prednisone, Imuran, and/or Cellcept.  Are you pregnant now or just thinking about getting pregnant?  From what I have read, it is advised not to become pregnant on Imuran.  You may be able to stop taking it while pregnant, but there is the chance of a flareup after delivery.  I'm sure other people can give you more input.  What does your doctor advise?

Hello Giselle and welcome to HealingWell. If you use the Customer Google search at the top right hand of this page. Type in pregnancy and imuran and click on the search box, it will bring up some older posts others were discussing about it. Good luck.......

Giselles, you need to discuss this with your physician.

Hugs,

Giselles,

You definitely need to talk to your doctor. You will also need to see a high risk gynecologist who will consult with your hepatologist. I know some poeple on another group who had babies while on Imuran but I don't know on what dose. I also know there are a lot who say not to...personally, I wouldn't risk it. Most people do have flares right after the birth of the baby as the pregnancy will cause that. So then you have to start the whole treatment over with pred too. It's a choice you need to make with your doctors.
