Hi, melissah - yes, Imuran can cause problems that make the liver values abnormal. Depending on how high the numbers were, they will either want a repeat blood test soon or take you off the meds and wait a bit and do another test. Also, they might watn to draw additional blood for other tests. Did the doctor's office call you with the results? If so, what did they say they wanted you to do? And if you got the results from somewhere else, I would call the doctor's office and ask to be seen to discuss the results.
