Welcome and good luck. I was weary of taking my first dose of Azathioprine (which Judy speaks of above) but I am glad I did it. I am doing well and don't see too many Ill side effects. I do take extra folic acid for hair loss and it seems to help.good luck!Karen

Hi there, i'm taking Imuran which is in the same class as 6MP.
I find taking it at night i'm not as tired in the day. The side effects do go away usually after a few weeks at most.Hang in there, as many have said it does take 3-6 months to kick in fully. I'm at week 4 now with Imuran, i've noticed little improvement so far but i'm also on evil prednisone ;)
Best wishes, good luck!
