Just wondering what side effects did you have, and how long after stoping the meds did you get better? I've been nauseated for 3 weeks now, jaundiced since 2 days ago, started itching all over two days ago, dr check my blood work yesterday and my bilrubin levels are elevated.They were normal 15 days ago when we did the last blood work. He's pretty sure its from the 6-mp and told me to discontinue it.

This happened to me, basically within a couple weeks of starting 6mp. I basically had no immune system. I had to be isolated , but they immediatly knew from the liver function. So I'd say within a few days i was feeling better, but that also has to do with me being admitted because of it i'm sure.

Sorry so short, and not even paying attention to capital letters, but I'm just not really in the long conversation type mood. I will be coming back to add on to what actually happened. I actually was just reading some old health files and came across this admit, I could actually tell you everything they did for me, but probably useless. lol
