I was thinking about something today as I was reading about benefits of vitamin c to Crohn's patients:

What if you're taking an immune suppressant, such as Imuran. Does the boost to the immune system that the vitamin c produces negate the desired affect of the Imuran?
Current meds: 100mg Imuran, 20mg Prilosec, 30mg prednisone, Humira, fish oil, iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, and b-12 shots.

I havn't been able to find any interactions with taking Imuran along with Vit C.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I drink OJ with Imuran and I have no issues, that has 125% of Vit C per cup and I drink 2 glasses a day ;)
No issues here, however if anyone takes too much Vit C they can get D, but when I mean a lot, it would be like taking 4L of OJ or sumthin, lol
