I have been on methotrexate a few times and it did not help at all. I tried 6MP which is a different but similar drug to Imuran (azathiprine). I got violently ill and had to stop the medications. Given my history, i will probably not have multiple medications, unless something new is discovered. My GI says the use of the two helps many people but not all, just like each biological medication doesn’t help everyone. Please definitely try it out.
Word of warning, if you take gout medication like allopurinal make sure your GI knows. There are bad drug interactions with some of these. In my case, i had to stop the allopurinal which fired off the gout and got it was horrifically painful.
