I had a bad reaction to Imuran a little over a year ago.  It started a week or so after I started taking it, and crept in as flu-like symptoms.  It continued with hot and cold flashes, body aches, uncontrollable shaking, and a nasty headache... I wisened up and figured out it may be from the Imuran.  I called my Dr and he told me to stop taking it immediately.  The symptoms stopped by the next morning.
Hope that helps!

I too had a bad reaction with the immuran, about 3-5 yrs ago.  If i remember right, i felt like i had the flu.  But i do remember, if i could have shot myself i would have.  that is how bad i felt.

I developed pancreatitis about 6 weeks after starting Immuran.  I had abdominal pain in the mid-abdomen. It hurt to breathe or any movement of my abdominal wall. Fortunately my doctor checked my enzymes right away, realized it was early pancreatitis, and I felt better several days after. But it was a bummer not to be able to take Immuran.
