I am currently taking Imuran (azathioprine) but am having some CRAZY hair loss.
I spoke with my doctor once about
the issue and he upped my dosage. I was a little confused why he would do that but I decided to trust and go ahead. (hoping that he knows best) It has been 2 weeks and I am headed back into get my regular blood work done. NOt much has changed.
I still am loosing hair and my stomach has been pretty upset. I want to ask about
changing drugs but I am not sure of the difference between azathioprine (imuran) and mercatopurine (6mp).
ANy advice on the drugs?
ANy advice on a different drug that I can research?
Diagnosed with CD in Jan. 2008. Resection in August 2008.

I choose joy... I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical... the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God. ~Max Lucado
