Well I went to my GI today and was told to take Imuran 75mg to start, then 150mg eventually after 4 weeks or so.
Also, blood work every week for 4 weeks, then every other 2 weeks, then once a month eventually.
I'm thankfully still tapering Pred, so if it all goes well i'm off of that by xmas. If symptoms get worse they'll put me on something experimental (some anti-TNF blocker) as Remicade or Humira isn't covered on my plan and this will be free if it gets to that point.
I was wondering, iI I started the Imuran today, if it's not for me, and I'm allergic how long will I know?
Thanks a bunch! :) Hope all is well with everyone!
