I just started taking 6mp 50mg about 10 days ago, yesterday i woke up with swollen lymph nodes on the sides of my neck. they are still swollen today. they're very tender to touch, and it hurt to move my neck around. ive been searching the forum for answers, but noone has gone into great detail about it. im just wondering if its something i should be concerned about. since its sunday, i cant talk to my doctor till tomorrow. has anyone else experianced this taking 6mp??

Could you possibly have a virus or something? I wish I had more answers, maybe you can call an ER on call nurse and see if they can give you some answers until you can talk to your doctor. Hugs~

Check with a doctor. I've had swollen lymph nodes at that location for a couple of decades, long before I started taking 6-MP. I panicked when I first got them, but was told that they were symptomatic of generalized inflammation in my system--not a surprise in someone who's always had allergies and sinusitis. But it's always a good idea to have a professional look at them, particularly if you're going to be eaten up with concern and worry until you do!
