But that is always the decision facing us w/every drug for our illness, whatever that illness is. We have to weigh the risks vs our quality of life - or even w/some illnesses w/our life itself.
I thank God each and every day that my Crohn's has remained mild enough that Imuran has kept me fairly comfortable and in and out of symptomatic remission. I hope to never have to consider the options of the biologics such as Remicade, Humira, etc. despite the wonders they have done for some crohnies.
On the other hand, I am grateful that they are an option for those who need more than Imuran or 6MP can provide.
