Wow - thank you all so much for your replies. I don't know what I would do without this forum. There is such a wealth of information, and to be able to hear other people's experiences it just helps so much.
Is 6mp something that is common is Australia? Because all I really hear about
is the Azathioprine and Imuran. I have only started on 50mg of Azathioprine a day, with the end goal being 150mg a day. I have been having day-long nausea, migraines, leg cramps and aches, and terrible D. My gp said the nausea should go away after a few months, but my god it has been unrelenting :( I am supposed to take it in the morning so I take it with or shortly after my breakfast. But it still makes me feel sick.
I have had the migraines for ages anyway, but my gp wasn't sure if the leg cramps and D was from the Azathioprine or just the Crohn's. I am not due to have a blood test to check the effect of the Azathioprine until just before Chrissy, so will see what happens.
Tis bad enough being sick, but having medicine that makes you sick too just sux lol
Have not really heard much about
Humira - what does that do? I know Remicade as in Infliximab. And a lot of people say they take Pentasa, what does that do?
Thanks again for all your replies, you guys are awesome.
