I have been taking Imuran for about
a year and a half. I was without it for three weeks in July and got really sick so I know along with the Asacol it works for me. I take both the Asacol and the Imuran at night right before bed and have no problems whatsoever so I would agree with switching it to nighttime and maybe eating a light snack with it if it still makes you queasy. Unless these strategies don't work at all I would really advise giving it some time to work. It took about
six weeks for me to feel better after only being off of it for three weeks so it really does take a little while to work. The list of meds we have available to us are rather small so I would advise really giving it a shot or you will soon find yourself resorting to the stronger meds more quickly than necessary. I sincerely hope you start feeling better soon and please don't hesitate to talk frankly with your doctor about
how you are feeling. Also, coming here for support is always helpful as well. Good luck and keep us updated.
