Sorry Smurfy...That stinks. Do you know how long you are gonna have to be on high doses of pred? I am hoping its not for long! Good luck with the Imuran, hopefully you will have no/few side effects!


I didnt know Imuran was a chemotherapy drug, I thought it was a immunosuppressant!!

Surprise, it is lol. The doctor has me week 1 60 mg week 2 50 mg week 3 40 mg week 4 30 mg week 5 20 mg week 6 til appointment 20 mg. Ooof, for the prednisone doses. The immuran I do 150mg

I need all the prayers I can get with immuran. Last time I was on it, I had to have iv's 3 times a week, lots of naseau meds, vomiting, diaherrea, and after a few months I started bleeding internally from it.

Do they somehow expect different results with the Imuran this time? To me it seems like you'd move on to the next med and see how it works for you, rather than repeating something that made you so ill.

Yea, I thought I shouldn't be on it. But they think maybe I can perform miracles and make it work. We will see.
