Good evening to all. I am the mother of a 16-year old girl who has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease. She had been very ill since last spring, when she lost 25 lbs. unintentionally, severe chronic fatigue for 2 years, stomach upset, and joint pain. She was treated with Remicade infusion therapy last Wednesday. The doctor wants her to be on Mercaptopurine (6MP) as well. I realize that this cocktail of drugs is extremely toxic and could be lethal. However, I don't want to undermine doctor's orders. I would like to know if anyone has been on this treatment, if so, how long? how did they feel after taking 6MP? and how are they doing now? Please feel free to share your story. Thank you!
