ChronieYogi, that fear of lymphoma is another concern I have, for sure.
sk bum, thanks for the information. I'm feeling the same way about
taking them both together. His plan was to start them at the same time, then three months from now discontinue the Humira, and use the Imuran as my long term maintenance drug. Honestly, I think I'd rather stay on the Humira. I've had no problems at all as far as short term side effects (nausea, headache, etc.) since I did the four Humira injections yesterday. I have a small bruise on my leg from one of the injections, but other than that, nada.
So you are going to taper off of the Humira, and stay on Imuran? I'm asking, because I'm a bit confused: your post says that you tapered off the Humira within 1.5 months, but your signature says that you're hoping to discontinue the Imuran and Entocort after a month of Humira. I'm just wondering which one you're prefering for long term use.

Entocort 9 mg/day, Pentasa 4 gm/day, started Humira 1/22/08. I'm convinced that Prednisone is the root of all evil, and primarily responsible for global warming.
