I take 150 mg of imuran too since the 3rd of oct. I had some hairloss from the asacol but it went on turbo boost the first 1.5 months I went on the imuran although now it seems to have stabilized as of this past week. I'm not bald but my hair thinned out a lot so 2 haircuts later you can't notice it and people actually think I look cute! LOL if they only knew WHY I cut my hair.
Um I take mine at:
midnight (cause I work nightshift and those times work for me)
I am most nauseus from taking it up to about
45 min after and then it goes away. I actually tolerate it more if I eat a lil something while taking it. I will tell you that the first couple of weeks the nausea kicked my butt and I was even more tireder than I already was so it is good that you got zofran for that NOW.
what else.... I started noticing a difference in how I felt after about
2 weeks. I know they say that you won't get the full effect until 8 weeks so I am kind of excited to see what the full effect will be. My stools started getting more normalish in consistency and the fluctuations are now less and less. I was on asacol for 2.5 months and although I didn't have D all the time, I still was fluctuating between C and D EVERYDAY but I was afraid of taking the imuran cause I wasn't too keen on taking a chemo drug. I'm ok with taking it now but I would rather have the option of going off of it someday to have kids. I already did this once I started the asacol but make sure to take vitamins and a probiotic. Just in case.
oh here's a p.s. just know that you might be more succeptible to the cooties floating around. OMG I got a measly simple cold which my old body could kick in 4 days and it took me 20 days to get over it.
